Catching Fire at Fire in the Triad

Before I delve into my evening at Fire in the Triad I feel the need to preface that I am both fortunate and thankful. I am fortunate that my life thus far has allotted me the comfort of scrutiny, and I am thankful that regardless of socioeconomic status or gender/sexual orientation, I am included in […]

FIRE! FIRE! FIRE! In The Triad!

Konbanwa dear readers! That’s good evening for those of you that don’t religiously watch Iron Chef like I do. Now I’ll keep this brief, I am not entirely familiar with Fire in the Triad, but here’s what I do know. It’s an Iron Chef style competition that pits local chefs against each other and it […]

It’s Always Bo Time.

Ask any born and raised North Carolinian and they will tell you that there are two passions that run deep in the Tarheel state; ACC basketball and Bojangles. While I have stated my hatred of chain restaurants, there is certainly a soft, deep fried place in my heart for Bo Time. I was recently privileged […]

The Worst of 2013

Let me preface this post by explaining that I do not write/post to harm businesses. I do this purely to let people know that there are good places to eat and that food culture in Greensboro is important. That being said, I am constantly asked “Where is the worst place to eat in Greensboro? What […]

Dame’s Chicken and Waffles

Chicken and Waffles might sound odd to some folks, but when you get down to flavor profiles it makes perfect sense; sweet waffles + savory chicken= umami. Now Dame’s is a newer addition to the downtown food scene, and I have to admit I did NOT like them at first. I was fortunate enough to […]

Salvino cucina italiana, Buon appetito!

For whatever reason good Italian food is remarkably difficult to find in Greensboro so when I heard that Salvino was serving up fresh made pasta and real-deal Italian staples I put on my fanciest pair of elastic waist banded pants and headed down to Battleground ave. Salvino is the epitome of “low key”. From the […]

Pho Hien Vuong

“Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, linguine-shaped rice noodles, a few herbs, and meat.” I’m not going to pretend that I know enough about Vietnamese cuisine to do a deep, cultural review of how Pho should be prepared, or even how to properly pronounce Pho (I’ve heard Fo and Fuh so I […]

Big Burger Spot, My new obsession…

To say that I am obsessed with Big Burger Spot would be a gross understatement. Never has such a humble eatery conjured such mammoth flavors; never have I been so taken aback by pure deliciousness. When I say humble, I mean it in the most literal sense possible; It resides adjacent to a gas station. […]

Darryl’s Wood Fire Grill 2.0

For those of you native to our fair city, Darryl’s Wood Fire Grill holds many a memory. Whether these memories are fond or that of disgust is irrelevant. The new and improved Darryl’s is now a beacon of what I have always considered to be Greensboro’s most powerful asset; ¬†potential. ¬†Darryl’s has taken a dream […]

YoDaddy dessert bar

Here’s the thing. It’s summer time, and it’s hot. This post brought to you by Captain Obvious. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have been on a fro-yo kick, and with the over abundance of these “dessert bars” popping up ( due to that fact that they are cheap to open […]

HOPS Burger Bar, the artist formerly known as Spring Garden Pizza.

I loved Spring Garden Pizza. It was my go to bar and their bar fare was fantastic (if anyone from Hops is reading this *cough Krissy Fuller cough*, BRING BACK FINGERS OF FIRE!) Needless to say I was one of many saddened to see this icon of the UNCG area leave. A moment of silence […]

TAVO, First impressions.

I was recently asked to check out TAVO, located in the gorgeous Kress Building downtown. Keep in mind I have only been there once and I usually like to go to a restaurant at least three times before I do a review, that being said, here we go. If you live in Greensboro, odds are […]

Wolfgang Puck Pizza Bar.

I lived in Italy for awhile and now I am a spoiled little pizza/coffee snob. Not that I wasn’t a snob before, I just thought you all should know that before I delve into the goodness of Pizza Bar. With Mellow Mushroom down the road and the odd location (just off Green Valley, behind old […]

filling station April 11

Fill up at The Filling Station!

I love The Filling Station. There, I said it. It’s small and understated, quiet and cozy, delicious and nutritious! A little cheesey on my part, but in all seriousness, this place is a must visit. Low price points are a huge draw for me, but it has to come with a large degree of deliciousity […]

Mizumi. At Long Last.

I am a bit of a sushi snob, and honestly nowhere in Greensboro has even remotely impressed me (save Bonsai on Bridford, but that has changed due to new management.) Mizumi worried me. State street is a weird little area and the last time I was over there I was eating at Cafe’ Pasta, and […]

How to Kill a Business 101:

I have been offended. Not by a towing company doing their job, but by an act of passive violence toward a community of small business owners whom I deem my family and friends. Federal and or state buildings, or anything operated by the government, that are there to serve the public should act as the […]

Never mess with people who handle your food!

So I’ve been thinking about how often I go out to eat and how I am perceived by servers and managers at all the lovely restaurants I visit. I know that on several occasions I have noticed “people” (I use the term loosely) acting less than savory (haha food pun…) and I hope that I […]

Restaurant Pick for March: The Iron Hen!

It’s March! Hopefully that means we’re due for some warmer weather, but even if it stays cold and dreary you should make your way to The Iron Hen, located off Wendover close to downtown. This peaceful pick permeates the senses with amazingly fresh local ingredients. I love small bistro style eateries and this month’s pick […]

How Southern are your Roots?

I am honor bound by the food gods to review Southern Roots. No it is not located in Greensboro, but it is (in this eaters opinion) one of, if not the, best restaurants in the triad. Go down highpoint road, away from downtown, past Ragsdale High School, under the haunted bridge, into Jamestown, and prepare […]

worx February 24

If it Worx, don’t fix it.

I have always been a fan of little places that are tucked away and hidden from the daily rabble and all the hustle and bustle that occurs in any downtown setting. If you haven’t heard of The Worx, I’ll forgive you this one time. This hidden culinary gem is located in the back alley across […]
