Early Sunday AM Breakfast-Bellevue/Seattle Airport Area

I will be in Bellevue for the Emerald Cup the weekend of April 25th. I have Saturday to explore Seattle for all the great culinary adventures it possesses, but on Sunday my flight leaves at 10:30AM but I want to get some kind of breakfast with my family that is in the area before the flight. I am thinking that I want to be at the airport around 8:45/9:00AM any idea of where we could get some grub in Bellevue or close to the airport before our flight? I am staying in Bellevue so anywhere in the area or on the way to the airport would be great, thanks!!! Open to all kinda of food!!!!

Steak in Columbus, Ohio

I will be Columbus this weekend for the Arnold Sport Festival. I am getting one meal where I can eat more of what I want rather than what is on my current meal plan for my training. What I am looking for is a really good steak and sweet potatoes and veggies. Where is the best place to find a meal kind of like that? It's going to be dinner Saturday night, HELP! I LOVE steak!

Those weird things you eat when you are in your kitchen

I eat cold cooked tilapia all the time, sometimes with spray butter...

Raw dough or any kid rocks my socks.

cold bacon and butter sandwiches sounds fantastic. I also enjoyed sliced cheese and mayo sandwiches, cold on mushy white bread, yummy.

All about the vinegar shots. My BF is filipino so I am all over the vinegar train.

I am a big fan of salsa by the spoonful as well as canned cold beans (garbanzo, kidney, refried etc.) while standing with the frig door open.

Sardinia Enoteca-Nashville

The service was great. Our server was suggested to us from one of my BFs co-workers (sorry I can't remember his name) and made us feel right at home. My BF and I both work in restaurants and know the ins and outs of service. Glasses were filled promptly, plates were cleared properly, and the staff was very polite.

The burrata is made in house and I would really recommend it. It needs the accompianates because it is pure cheese, thus lacking salt or acid. But paired with Prosciutto or caponata it's perfect.

I think the lack of business comes from the higher prices and the good but not great food. I enjoyed our meal but it wasn't visit it again because the food couldn't be topped kinda food.

I say try it and see what you think, my martini was made well and the wine was also great.

Sardinia Enoteca-Nashville

So here is the result of my meal at Sardinia.

The restaurant is beautiful but it was only half full on a Saturday night. We started our meal with some Burrata which was very clean and fresh and really good. The bread basket served along with out meal was great, especially we enjoyed with the Parmesan dip it comes with.

My boyfriend and I each got one of the tasting meals, Terra and Mare. It was great being able to try so many different dishes The food was up and down. Our favorites were the Tear Drop pasta with the Lamb Ragu and the bacon wrapped scallop. The weakest dish was the rabbit, it was more like bubbe's chicken soup.

Overall the experience was very nice, I don't know if I would go back but I really enjoyed the evening. Even if the food was decent.

Sardinia Enoteca-Nashville

Who has been? I am looking to possibly go there for a nice date night with the BF on a Saturday night. I needs thoughts on...
-Atmosphere?
-Causal or Upscale?
-Food, I am not a fan of the all american Italian but true Mediterranean Italian from Italy Italian, how does Sardinia rank?

Would you recommend another place? Some where a little upscale, that has more unique not run of the mill dishes.

Brunch and Sunday Night Dinner-Nashville

UPDATE: I am changing my plans for my bday. Urban grub after my shift Friday. Mad Donnas for Bloody Mary's Saturday AM (we are going skydiving Sunday AM so brunch is moved up) and Sushi (either Samuri or Ichiban) followed by ice cream on Sunday. So now I need a spot for dinner on Saturday. Here are places I am thinking:
-Whiskey Kitchen
-Tavern
-Husk
-Rolf and Daughters

Any opinions on my plan so far and where I should get dinner Satuday night? I don't have really have anything I really want I just don't want straight down home southern food. Maybe a little more unique or adventurous. Also if I should make reservations please let me know, THANKS!

Best Sushi in Nashville

I love sushi but I am more or a Nigiri/Sashimi girl and could really do without all the rolls especially all the new hip over the top ones (my one exception-spider roll, yum!). I am new to Nashville and am looking for a good just down home japanese style sushi place. I know there are places in the area that are more upscale/hipster with fusion and fun roll and cocktails and what not but what I am looking for is just a simple dining room with a sushi bar and good quality and fresh fish. Help please I need an ami ebi and sea urchin fix stat!

pete k, how do you feel about Past Perfect for Brunch, drinks seem to be good and food via yelp looks tasty.

City House looks great for dinner, pork and pizza kinda seal the deal.

Brunch and Sunday Night Dinner-Nashville

My birthday is coming up at the end of August (yes I like to plan ahead) and I want some delicious eats and drinks to celebrate. I have lived in Nashville for almost 3 weeks so I def need some help. My plan is to go out to dinner Sat night, brunch Sunday then dinner again Sunday night. I work at Urban Grub so my plan is to go out there on Satuday for fun with the crew and eats and drinks there and then wonder about for the remainder of the evening. So I need help for Sunday. I am not a huge breakfast/brunch person but I LOVE bloodmarys so I would like to go somewhere with good day drinking and some good food that has more the eggs and waffles. For dinner on Sunday, I am looking for some delicious dinner. I love spice, creativity, and LOTS of flavor. My only "regulations" are mid-range price, variety in dishes (not just straight all american cuisine) and drinks (as long as there is beer I am happy). I am down for hole in the wall mexican or wine glass new american restaurant. So suggest away! Thanks.

Awesome, yah I wanted to avoid Jacks but it seemed to be the best option for BBQ downtown, but Peg Leg looks awesome. Yazoo is perfect for me and our visits, we are all from Portland, so we love our handcrafted beer. And the flying saucer with the pool tables is perfect too, thanks!

I have some friends visiting from CA and I think even though it is a tourist trap we are going to hot Jack's BBQ downtown then go out for drinks before hitting up Mercy Lounge on a Monday for 8 on 8th. Thoughts on where to go for drinks somewhere downtown?

Thanks Pete.
Yeah even in the short week we have been here we have gathered the awesome amount of ethnic food close to us. We already hit up Shish Kabob (loved it!) so that makes very happy. Just need to find my go to Pupusa, Ethiopian Restaraunt, Pho place and I am good to go. Haha

Lockeland Table looks amazing, and right up our alley with the chicken lover pate and bone marrow.

Do you have any recommendations for an awesome steakhouse? It doesn't have to be downtown or in the Nolensville area.

The BF and I just moved to Nashville a week ago and haven't ventured out of our neighborhood (nolesville/antioch area) yet, but want to have a date night downtown soon. I am trying to figure where we should go to kick start our new Nashville lives. We are thinking dinner and a movie and are pretty open to all cuisines. We are from Portland, OR so we have had lots of delicious meals there. I would love to get a great steak or maybe some sushi, but anything ethnic would also be great, we are VERY adventurous eaters. The main stipulation in our decision is price point. We don't want to spend an incredible amount on dinner considering the move took quite a chunk out of our bank accounts. We don't want to spend more that $25ish per entree, but less than that would be awesome too. Ideas? HELP!
