Moe’s BBQ: Countdown to Cook (Kick) Off!

Moe’s BBQ: Countdown to Cook (Kick) Off!

By on 28 June, 2017 in Food, Sandra Nickel with 2 Comments

Having an office right across the street from the much beloved (but now dark) Sinclair’s Restaurant has provided me a bird’s eye view of the development of its successor eatery, Moe’s Original Bar-B-Que. I’m delighted to report that it looks like the cookoff (that’s kickoff in football terms) “ain’t far off!” Every chance that presents […]

My favorite place to be this time of year is sitting in the middle of my future vegetables. A cat usually wanders up and plops in my lap and I pull up some weeds that have emerged after the last big rain, but mostly I sit and stare at the wide leaves of the eggplant […]

A Jewel on Mt. Meigs: Kru

A good bar doesn’t have to do a lot of things, but to qualify as a “good bar,” it should perform well in a couple of basic categories. Kru (2118 Mt. Meigs Rd.) is a great bar, and even though it has only been open since 2014, it is already a cherished local institution. The […]

One Thursday a month we attend the meeting of our local Sierra Club chapter. They meet out at Aldersgate Methodist church at 6:30 on the third Thursday of the month, so we try to plan our dinner around the meeting. Sometimes this means that we eat over on that side of town. There’s lots of […]

Sinclair’s: The End of an Era

Almost exactly 25 years ago, I was at the Cloverdale Shoe Shop getting my usual repair work done (real estate is hard on shoes). The owner at the time, Carroll Thompson, mentioned to me that the art gallery at 1044 E. Fairview (the business of west of his) was closing soon and the property would […]

Farewell to Sinclair’s

Farewell to Sinclair’s

The rumors finally were confirmed when it was announced (by essentially every media outlet in town) that Sinclair’s would be closing. That sturdy cornerstone of the Cloverdale Five Points neighborhood, that trusty staple of the restaurant scene. There were some people that described Sinclair’s as their favorite place for food, but many more described it […]

A few years back, we published a piece about one of the awesome international grocery stores here in Montgomery. And we’ve also written an analysis about what cultural trends can be determined by scanning the aisles of our local Publix. So it’s not entirely out of the blue that we decided to comment on the […]

The first rule of Culinary Fight Club is … have fun! Last night four area chefs faced off in a competition to see who could improvise under pressure and win over a panel of judges and a hungry crowd at Alabama’s first Culinary Fight Club event. Held at 129 Coosa, the first time event drew […]

It’s normal in a new year to count your blessings as you prepare for the year ahead. Montgomery’s got so much to offer, but sometimes we can fall into a rut by eating only at the handful of our favorite restaurants. Sure, everyone loves El Rey, but you can’t just eat burritos every night (and […]

Meet Farmer Caylor Roling

If you go to Montgomery’s beautiful Curb Market or eat a meal at Central or A&P Social, you’ll routinely see fresh produce that was grown right here in the downtown of our great city. We were curious about the downtown farm and how it works, so last week MML sat down with Caylor Roling, Montgomery’s […]
