2016 Huntsville Restaurant Week

2016 Huntsville Restaurant Week

Huntsville Restaurant Week has come to an end for 2016. Unfortunately, this was a VERY busy week with the SMD Symposium in town, classes, school, and everything else. Based on everything, I decided that I would focus on lunch for the week. I will say that I was a bit disappointed that some many of the participating restaurants had their lunch prices set at $15 or above. Being a bit "frugal" (OK, so Lori would probably say I'm cheap....), my upper limit for lunch was $10. I ended up running through most of my August lunch budget this week. I don't go out for lunch often as I bring it with me to work, one main reason is that I've been working on eating better and losing a bit of weight. So, I decided to to sacrifice and visit some of the restaurants nearby that had a $10 lunch. Pane e Vino: As I mentioned, the SMD Symposium was in town and Lori was working a booth at the show and I was heading down there, so we met for lunch on Tuesday and walked over to Pane e Vino across Big Spring Park at the Huntsville Museum of Art.…

July 2016 Huntsville Highlights

July 2016 Huntsville Highlights

Here are some Highlights for July: Fundraising Wine Tasting for HEALS Annette Birchfield of the Wine Cellar is participating again this year in the "Stars Dancing for HEALS" fundraiser. As part of the fundraising, the Wine Cellar is hosting a Wine Tasting this Thursday night, July 21 from 6-8PM. The cost of the tasting is $30 per person. The wines are all being donated by the distributors, so the full amount will be going to support HEALS. (For more information on HEALS, click here.) The wines should all be wonderful! There will also be a silent auction as part of the fundraiser. I have donated a gift certificate for two seats in a future cooking class. Reservations are requested, so call The Wine Cellar at 256-489-9463 to make your reservations. Uncle Maddio's Pizza in Madison There's yet another new pizza place in town - seems like we never have enough. I was invited to the VIP Preview Night and ribbon cutting this past week. During the ribbon cutting, the owners spoke about selecting both the franchise and location. The Madison location is run by three partners and they were looking for a family friendly concept to bring to town. Uncle…

Huntsville Highlights May and June 2016

Huntsville Highlights May and June 2016

Since our last highlights post, we've visited a few other places in town that I wanted to let you know our thoughts. This is in addition to the new menu items at Bravo that I wrote about. Domaine South: Some big wine people we know told me about the Domaine South wine shop, so I had to go check it out. It's a really small place, but don't let the size fool you. They have a great selection of ¬†wines. It's located on Cleveland St., just off Meridian in the AM Booth Lumberyard complex. They host a tasting every Saturday afternoon from 2-4PM. We tried two different weeks (the first week, I didn't have the camera with me, so, gosh darn it, I had to go back to get pictures). The tastings are free and both that I have been to have had a wide variety of very good wines. They also have a number of gift items. It's worth checking out. Below the Radar: We don't get downtown for dinner that often, so when we were in the area, we decided to stop in at Below the Radar for dinner. It has been a while for us and Chef…
