One of my favorite things about Huntsville Restaurant Week is participant diversity. Whatever you like, you’ll find something to please you.

Longtime readers know that I would be just fine eating Thai, Vietnamese, or Japanese every day for the rest of my life. So I was delighted to find Phuket on the list of participants this year. This is a favorite place for me to go and relax at lunch, and the green curry I had yesterday was spot-on.

This comes with a spring roll appetizer and a cup of the soup of the day for $10. Other entree options include Pad Thai and Phuket orange peel chicken.

Today I met Saintseester at Fresko Grille, at the Stovehouse development. It’s a Levantine joint, and frankly, that’s a highly rated cuisine for me too. The special includes a tabouli salad, shawarma delight (I got beef, but chicken is also available), and pita.

Excellent eats from the cradle of civilization. (Click for larger.)

This is a truly phenomenal town in which to eat. Check out Huntsville Restaurant Week for participants and specials running through this weekend!

It’s here! Huntsville Restaurant Week 2019 started yesterday, and runs through next weekend. You can get all of the information on the participants and their specials here.

There are several of my favorites participating this year. I’ll give them some love ahead of some new-to-me exploration I’ll do in the next post.

Cyn Shea’s is an outstanding downtown deli with excellent sandwiches and a delicious jalapeno slaw to which I’m partial.

Earth and Stone Wood-Fired Pizza is the strongest pizza game in town. The crust and premium ingredients move the goalposts.

House of Kabob is a halal Persian restaurant on Sparkman, and I have it on good authority from an actual Persian that it is authentic. Everything is so wonderfully fresh-tasting!

New Market BBQ was far and away our favorite part of the boys having soccer games up that way. The brisket is delectable, and the potato salad might be the best I’ve ever had. (Friday through Sunday only, so plan ahead!)

Toybox Bistro lays down some serious wings and burgers, as well as a large and authentic Chicago-style hot dog. You’ll want to budget time to enjoy the toy collection throughout the restaurant too.

I’ll share my #DineHsv adventures this week as I have them. I’ll see you out there!

A Limestone County family has filed suit against e-cigarette manufacturer JUUL (and 35% owner Altria, parent of Philip Morris) and a local merchant, wishing to hold them responsible for their 17-year-old son’s nicotine addiction. The WAFF story, which embeds the legal complaint, is here. I started smoking cigarettes regularly in March 1987, just short of […]
