Kaput and Rolling Along

Nashville Restaurants and Food
Friday Notes

Es Fernandos at FooBAR is officially kaput. The Mexican/Southwestern food was appreciated by the crowd inside the East Nashville bar, but apparently not enough to work out financially. We’ll miss those quesadillas. It was a nod to the menu of the long time favorite Mexican restaurant on Gallatin Road.

Meanwhile, we passed Phil’s Bar-B-Que at 2821 Gallatin Pike and found it closed up on a Friday night. Not a good sign. Who knows, they may just be on a vacation. Keep us updated on what you hear.

In better news we’re keeping an eye on Bicyclette CafĂ© on Lebanon Road in Hermitage. The French themed joint has a light, laid back and yet sophisticated menu. The do lunch and dinner during the week and later hours on the weekend (closed Sundays). Let us know if you have had an experience you would like to share. www.bicylettecafe.com

And even better news, our friends at the Pickled and Fried blog report that there is a new wood fired pizza place called Bella Napoli Pizzeria opening up next to Taco Mamacita in Edgehill Village. It's a new venture from the executive chef at Valentino's. Check out the Pickled and Fried blog for details: http://pickledandfried.wordpress.com/    Or search Bella Napoli on Facebook....

I live near Phil's BBQ, and they are usually open at lunch. They are open sporadically at night; I'm unsure if they have a set schedule. But for the time being, they are currently still open even if it's only for lunch.

every time I go by it looks closed, and the phone is disconnected. If they have a new phone and new hours someone e-mail us and I'll update the posting.
