Restaurant Review: Boxwood Biscuit Co.

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Boxwood Biscuit Co.

Back in 2016, restaurant publications started predicting a Big Biscuit Trend in the U.S. That is, biscuit concept joints were going to be all the rage. Biscuits on every menu! Sadly, that trend never really manifested in these parts. There were a few joints with breakfast biscuit sandwiches, but that’s about it.   Five years later, as […]

Short Order: Ropa Vieja at Havana Mia

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Short Order: Ropa Vieja at Havana Mia

Ropa Vieja can be translated as “old clothes” . . . which is not the most appetizing name for Havana Mia’s tasty masterpiece. The name is a traditional one, though, and the internet says Ropa Vieja is the National Dish of Cuba. Some things go better untranslated.

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Hank’s Texas BBQ

Without much fuss, Hank’s Texas BBQ plopped itself down in Clintonville in the spot once occupied by Old Skool. A ginormous, room-sized smoker is stationed out front. Beyond that, Hank’s decor suggests that it could serve just about anything: its walls hold big televisions, but are absent cutesy barbecue motifs or carnivore art. But there’s […]

Short Order: AJ’s Quesabirria

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Short Order: AJ’s Quesabirria

AJ’s Birria Tacos is a food truck that could set up shop anywhere. That’s how food trucks work; they’re mobile. So, you might expect it to set up camp near some sort of local hotspot, a place with lots of people. Perhaps a busy metro office park, or an outdoor festival or market.  But instead, AJ’s […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Baked Goods at City Folk’s Farm Shop

City Folk’s Farm Shop is more than just farming (or gardening) supplies. Wander through its aisles, and you might find jars of local syrup or honey.
