The Arlington Files: Tabouleh Mediterranean Cafe

My favorite thing about food writing is finding a restaurant that is under-appreciated. Tucked away in a blocky strip mall on Merrill Road, one might drive past Tabouleh every day for years without noticing it. One would be missing out.

Sneak Preview: Seasons 52

Is it possible to melt the icy heart of the city’s biggest St. Johns Town Center grinch? With a CHAIN restaurant? All I can say is, if Seasons 52 is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

Road Food: Sugar’s Ribs – Chattanooga, TN

It’s no secret that The Man and I are into barbecue. As we motored through Chattanooga, Tennessee, we couldn’t help but notice the signs for Sugar’s Ribs. Clinging to the side of Missionary Ridge, the place commanded a view of the city and mountains that was very appealing. But would the ‘cue measure up to the view?

Road Food: Zingerman’s Deli – Ann Arbor, MI

For many years, I’ve gotten the Zingerman’s catalog. There are plenty of illustrations, but no photos involved in this cute deli/bakery line drawing paradise. When The Man and I realized that our trip from Toronto to our family’s home on Lake PawPaw in Michigan would bring us through Ann Arbor, we knew we had to see these treats in person. It’s hard to pull the trigger on mail ordering baked goods and charcuterie, but when you’re practically driving PAST the place — well, you’re just duty bound to check it …

Eat Up Downtown: Indochine

Eat Up Downtown’s purpose is clear — draw Jacksonville’s citizenry away from their favorite outlying restaurants and into downtown.  Some of the most highly regarded establishments in the city trot out their three course prix fixe menus once a year for the low, low price of $25. Galloping hordes of diners (in theory) pour into their chairs, sample the fare and establish a relationship that will last the whole year through. So, what happened at Indochine?

The Arlington Files: The Donut Shoppe

 
I’ll be honest – Arlington is not a hotbed of culinary excitement. Even the extended areas of Regency and “Down University” seem to be one never ending strip mall filled with fast food, megachains and questionable Chinese buffets. However, we have one thing that you can’t get anywhere else in Jax – the best doughnuts. Ever.

Review: La Strada Italia

Is it possible that somewhere in Jacksonville there is a strip mall with not one, but three great local restaurants? We visited La Strada Italia to find out.

Review: Hunt Club Subs ‘n Grill

As a girl most comfortable in corsets and velvet, Hunt Club Subs ‘n Grill should be the polar opposite of a place I’d love. As they say, don’t judge a book by its cover.

Bite Club Report: Augustine Grille

When relatively unfettered by economy, what level of cuisine is possible? Can it be sustainable? Can it be local? Can a “normal” person buy an expensive meal and not feel robbed? Can it knock your socks off? Can you get it south of Manhattan? At Augustine Grille the answer to all of these questions is “yes.”
