Pre- Marathon Meal in Nashville, Post celebration dinner and Sunday Brunch ideas?

If you are in Franklin Pucketts is a good choice. I haven't been there recently and it may be crowded if your going on a weekend or Friday night but it's worth the wait!

XO Taste VS Hong Kong Restaurants (Long)

Also the duck, fish, quail and crispy eggplant is good. I been here a few times and each time, the food is excellent. In terms of authentic chinese food, it is by a long shot the best in Baltimore, and can hold its place even if you compare it with the places in Metro DC. Only drawback, service is can be very slow when crowded.

XO Taste VS Hong Kong Restaurants (Long)

At Grace Garden's the Dan-Dan Noodles is a great family plan dish, with noodles in the middle of the table, and a variety of toppings around it. Diners can choose what toppings they want, can avoid the hot sauce if its not for you.

Asparagus Mimosa

I am not sure this use of asapargus qualifies as "mimosa" either.

Sweet Chile–Chicken Rice Bowl

I agree with poster who said would have preferred a garnishing sauce from scratch rather than the bottle sweet gloopy stuff. Sounds like a good marinade, though.

Warm Spring Vegetable Salad with Favas, Green Beans, and Radicchio

Step 8: Would separate out vinaigrette to later serve over vegetables and serve warm or at room temperature. (If you expect to have leftovers, dress only the portion you are serving and store the remaining vegetables and vinaigrette separately in the refrigerator.)

Chuan Xiang Ge - An Impromptu Sichuan Mini-down (Richmond BC)

Original blogger says: 小四川現在真的還滿不行的 但是生意很好﹐大概是名字做出來了吧﹐位置也不錯川香閣的位置就不好﹐知道的人才會去吃 川香閣的音樂很old school﹐不過我會跟著哼XD
I had a decent meal at Golden Spring so I am not sure why they are getting bad reviews. I also really appreciate their quick service, we have been there for casual business meetings.

Buca or Scaramouche?

I would try Scaramouche over Buca if you haven't been to either restaurant.

Buca
604 King St. West, Toronto, ON M5V 1M6, CA

Occasion-worthy spot for a group of eight (Scaramouche, Canoe, George, Opus??)

I vote for Ultra, the food is great and the patio view makes it special.
