Bistro 1130 brings Mediterranean-inspired cuisine to the shoppers of Town and Country Crossing, albeit with varying degrees of authenticity. Executive chef Karim Bouzammour, a Moroccan native, infuses the menu with specialties from his homeland; Bistro 1130 is at its best when he embraces this rich, North Africa culinary heritage. In particular, the lamb couscous, served in a tagine with assorted vegetables and chickpeas, is the embodiment of authentic Moroccan cuisine. Likewise, do not pass up the fresh sardines when available. These mild, little fish are packed with fresh herbs and drizzled with lemon juice -- an authentic Mediterranean delicacy. Also noteworthy is fig-and-pine-nut-stuffed pork, as well as the excellent phyllo-dough-wrapped goat cheese turnover. Weather permitting, opt for the patio -- Bistro 1130 has a prime, lakeside location.
BrickTop’s is a small Nashville-based chain specializing in slam-dunk high-end crowd pleasers: lobster bisque and beef carpaccio; crab cakes and meat loaf and steak frites; seared ahi tuna (as a steak, a sandwich or the main ingredient in a salad). The ambiance is Anywheresville, USA, and the cuisine isn’t ground-breaking, but the kitchen does a good job with most of it, and there’s a lot to be said for spot-on execution. Seafood dishes in particular stand out, especially the crab cakes and a skillfully grilled trout. Your server will undoubtedly ask if you’ve saved room for dessert. If you have, the key-lime pie with a macadamia-nut crust is the direction to take.
Casa Gallardo's five area locations present diners with the menu items and festive décor that have become staples of the Mexican-restaurant game. Apps include guacamole made at your table, while the combination platters feature all the faves - beef tacos and a cheese enchilada, for example. Other standards appear as well from fajitas to carnitas to chimichangas.
The “modern” in Fiesta! Modern Mexican Cuisine refers to the décor, not the food. Rather than run with the all-too-popular sombrero-laden faux-cantina template, this Chesterfield restaurant has opted for a clean, contemporary look. The lengthy menu, though, features mucho gringo-friendly fare: burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, fajitas and chimichangas. Best bets tend to fall under the “Chef Special” heading, including tacos al pastor, generous servings of pork with pineapple and chopped onion and cilantro with a fiendishly hot salsa. The “Fiesta Soup,” with steak, strips of nopal cactus, bacon and beans in a thin but deeply flavored broth, is a welcome change of pace.
Five Guys was founded in Arlington, Virginia, in 1986. There are now more than 300 Five Guys locations spread across 25 states. The menu is blissfully simple: burgers, hot dogs and fries. The regular burger has two thin patties, the "little" burger one. You can order your burger plain, with cheese, with bacon or with cheese and bacon. All of the other toppings are free. The list is standard, with raw jalapeño slices being the most exotic. The burgers are terrific, and the French fries are just about perfect. The whole operation is impressively efficient, fast food as it ought to be.
