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 […]

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 […]

Veggie Entrees

Veggie Entrees

A lot has changed in the four years since the Alabama Department of Tourism asked us to write a blog post about vegetarianism for their “Year of Alabama Food.” Since we authored that post back in 2012, a lot of Montgomery restaurants have closed, and several new ones have opened. And despite the end of […]

Vintage Year

Vintage Year

Like most reasonable folks, we reject labels like “foodies,” but we do greatly enjoy the experience of eating in a restaurant where a well-trained professional puts considerable amount of time and thought into preparing quality food, which is then brought to you by polite people. Sometimes, there’s wine involved. We aren’t wealthy enough to have […]

NYC Gyro: A New Spin Downtown

NYC Gyro: A New Spin Downtown

I live downtown and I love it. My car goes days without being used because I can walk to work. I have miles of safe and challenging routes to run right out side my door. I cross paths on a daily basis with movers, shakers and lawmakers in the capital city. I never have to […]

It’s pretty much a straight shot from our house to the office, down near the Statehouse by way of Norman Bridge (which becomes Union as it diverges before the freeway). Sometimes we drive this stretch four times a day. So we thought we were pretty familiar with the take-out food options in the area (Derk’s […]

The A&P Social

The A&P Social

There’s an old joke about the weather, suggesting that if you don’t like it, wait around for a while and it’ll change. The same could be said for the building at 503 Cloverdale Road, which in the seven or eight years that we have lived here has been a series of restaurants called Nancy Patterson’s, […]

Green Chile Alert

What does home smell like for you? I’m from New Mexico, and for me home has two very distinct smells. First among these is pinon, usually burned as wood or incense. It’s a very unique smoky and ancient odor which you really should experience if you haven’t already. After all, you’ve only got five senses. […]

Green Papaya

Green Papaya

It seems like people either love or hate Green Papaya (409 Coliseum Blvd), and I can kind of see why. My first experience with Green Papaya was during my first year in Montgomery. I was living near the fairgrounds, and almost nightly I’d lie in bed in my lonely new town shaking the Urban Spoon […]

Oil and Vinegar: Home Cook’s Essentials

By on 3 February, 2014 in Cooking, Food, Natilee McGruder with 0 Comments

On my journey to a healthier me, I have recently started an elimination diet where I am cutting out known inflammatory foods such as dairy, meat, sugar, grains (rice, wheat, etc), starchy vegetables (beans and potatoes) and alcohol. It has been a challenging and eye-opening experience to keep my meals both satisfying and tasty. As […]
