So Many Tables, So Little Time

CHOW, BABY
It seems like a lot of my favorite restaurants in town haven’t been around very long. It could be that the new places are just the latest shiny objects dangled in front of my short attention span, but I don’t think so. My t...


The sandwiches, like this bacon cheeseburger, aren’t fancy, but they are tasty and very wallet-friendly. Brian Hutson

Simple, Effective

Greasy Bend Burgers could use a little more creativity, but the sammies hit the spot.
EDWARD BROWN
If you haven’t visited the Race Street area in a few years, you might not recognize it. The neighborhood has been undergoing a lot of revitalization recently and is now home to a handful of progressive art spaces, chic lofts,...

Ramen-arama

CHOW, BABY
Back in Chow, Baby’s college days, it slurped down more than its share of ramen noodles. I used to buy them for 50 cents a pack, toss in a little soy and sriracha sauce, and — voilà! A meal fit for a broke, dateless Englis...

Color it Meaty, Matey

CHOW, BABY
Growing up, I used up more than a few crayons on those coloring pages that restaurants hand out to keep kids quiet. The one that hung on the Chow, Family fridge the longest was of something called Burger Town, showing a lush ki...

Take a Left at the Water Cooler

CHOW, BABY
I couldn’t find West Fork Grill (1200 Summit Ave, Ste. 100) the first time I went. A friend had invited me to lunch there, and I assumed it was in a stand-alone building or a shopping center. At the very least, I thought it w...
