Rock and Roll Sushi

Rock and Roll Sushi

By on 16 April, 2018 in Food, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

For a town with so much fresh seafood, good sushi is surprisingly hard to find. So when we heard that a new franchise sushi place was opening out by Whole Foods, we made the long trek East to see what it was all about. Both times we went, the place was pretty packed, with servers […]

Four Things For a Weekend

Four Things For a Weekend

By on 5 March, 2018 in Food, Fun, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

Some weekends, you might do nothing. Some weekends, you might try to do too much. We did about four noteworthy things this weekend, and felt like they comprised the right amount of “stuff” on a weekend. We weren’t in full “slacking on the couch” lazy mode, but we weren’t hectically scheduled either. Here are the […]

High Five Poke

I’m sorry. What? Are you trying to poke me? No. It’s pronounced poh-kay. It rhymes with “okay.” So like Pokemon? No. Well, ok. So long as there’s no poking involved. What is it? It’s food! It’s a new restaurant in Montgomery! It’s a trend that might actually have some staying power because it’s delicious! Where […]

First Watch

It was cold outside, and we wanted brunch. We headed over to Zelda Road to go to First Watch, a place that’s quickly risen to the top of our local list. We’d been there for a “take Mom to lunch” type of thing, and also had an early morning coffee there. The place bills itself […]

Decker’s Cafe

It’s strange. Decker’s Cafe has a sign, but almost no online presence. There are a handful of seemingly-defunct Facebook pages, but that’s about it. It’s located at 500 Monroe Street in the Lurleen B. Wallace office building. Lurleen Wallace, pictured below looking crisp in a white blazer, was Alabama’s first female governor, and much like […]

With a beloved relative in town, we were looking for a lunch place that would impress. But we also needed it to be pretty quick. So we went over to the new Island Delight location on Dexter last week, and we had a great experience. If you’ve only been to the location out by Maxwell, […]

New Food Update

Earlier this year, we thought for a little while that we might have to move to Atlanta for work. For a variety of reasons, we didn’t want to go, although we like Atlanta just fine. Spoiler alert: We stayed in Montgomery. But as we weighed the pros and cons, one thing stood out to us […]

Taste – at Hampstead

Taste – at Hampstead

By on 14 August, 2017 in Food, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

There’s something about the summer heat that makes small plate dining so appealing. You don’t want to turn on the oven, much less sit down to a big pile of steaming food. You want someone to bring you bite-sized portions of things in a chilled out atmosphere that makes you forget, for a time, that […]

Sol: A Restaurant Review

By on 25 May, 2017 in Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

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 […]

Farewell to Sinclair’s

Farewell to Sinclair’s

By on 9 April, 2017 in Bars, Food, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 2 Comments

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 […]
