Re: Greater Boston

Just a reminder that Troquet on South has started up their Summer Wine Sale event again. We were there opening night this past Saturday and tried some interesting old wines. The 82 Latour a Pomerol was my favorite.

Spicy Coconut Mussels with Lemon Grass (NYT recipe, without the chili this time, so I guess it wasn't actually spicy)

Served it with a 2009 Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc, which was amazing at this age.

Re: Nashville and Surrounding area Eats?????

The trick at Martin's is to skip the line and go right to the bar, where you can order food with your drink.

It's decent enough BBQ, but I wouldn't wait in that line.
