image (Biscuit) Love, Actually

An important part of my weekend routine has revolved around where the Biscuit Love Truck was parked and serving. I had it down: Franklin Farmers Market on Saturdays early or White’s Mercantile on Sundays. And I had to be prompt, because when they run out of menu items on the truck, my craving will have to wait another week. You could call it routine, but the big L-O-V-E was how I feel about that truck. Big Southern tastes to warm the belly and start the day right? Yes, most definitely LOVE. And now the beloved truck is Nashville newest breakfast and lunch spot, Biscuit Love Brunch.

Well, we’re five days into a new year and if there’s one thing that’s consistent of those days – they’ve all been very grey. And wet. So what better way to wish away the rainy weather than with a Holiday Hangover Brunch by 3st of the Month?

The event venues rotate as well so you have the opportunity to check out different locations with each month.  More…

image Luke & the Chocolate Factory

I’ll never forget the first time I read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. As a kid, it’s what dreams were made of: rivers flowing of chocolate, bubble gum that tastes like anything you wish, elevators able to fly anywhere and all the candy you can eat. I wonder if this story ever crossed Scott Witherow’s mind when he decided to dedicate his career to chocolate making with his brand, Olive & Sinclair.

image A Gulch Giveaway

It’s no secret the Gulch is growing. From Adele’s to 404 Kitchen, the dining options read like roll call at the James Beard Foundation. But what’s also happening quietly is the longstanding restaurants, faced with increased competition, are being forced to put up or shutter up, as was the unfortunate case when Rumours unexpectedly closed its doors this fall. Five Dishes recently visited Cantina Laredo and Watermark, two of the Gulch’s veteran restaurants to hear – and taste – what they are doing to spice things up. Literally. More…
