Quick Takes I

Blackhorse Pub & Brewery

We had dinner at Blackhorse on a Friday night recently and one of the specials was a Mahi Mahi dish served over pasta. The cream sauce was good, the pasta was plain but well-cooked, and the fish itself was light and flaky. I’d order it again.


Burger Republic

I visited Franklin, TN on business and, after a truly terrible meal at a local barbecue place that I will review when I get some emotional distance from the experience, my coworker and I decided to find some good dessert. I flicked through some options on Urbanspoon and selected Burger Republic after reading some reviews of its milkshakes. I’m glad we stopped there because the Nutella shake was outstanding, even if it was just vanilla ice cream, nutella, and chocolate sauce. Looking forward to returning to Tator Tot Fondue.


Chick-fil-A

On that same business trip we stopped at Chick-fil-A for breakfast on the way back home. I was finally able to try something several people had recommended - the Chick-n-Minis. These were nothing short of delightful - a chicken nugget inside a piping hot roll. I’ll admit to having two orders of 4.
