After a pretty long drought of no headline-making restaurant openings, I’m starting to hear lots of buzz about three exciting new places getting ready to welcome guests.
After spending what they called “eight wonderful years” in Kanawha City, Sugar Pie Bakery has moved to a new location in Southridge that offers a drive-thru for those wanting to pick up sweets on the go.
My recent exploration of Putnam County’s food scene has taken me back to enjoy a few old favorites, like the so-good-it’s-drinkable panang curry at Thai Valley Kitchen in Putnam Village Plaza and the gloriously messy Korean beef wonton nachos with lime crema, pickled slaw, jalapenos, sesame …
I recently shared news that the YWCA’s popular pre-Thanksgiving brunch “Foodie Feast” was moving to Beni Kedem Temple next to the Charleston Coliseum & Convention Center this Sunday, but a new venue isn’t the only big change in store for guests. The annual event benefiting the Sojourner’…
Every now and then I stumble upon a restaurant — or in this week’s case, two — where the food is so good it completely blows me away. But as exciting as spots like this are to find, the discovery is even sweeter when they turn up in the most unlikely of places.
When I told you a few weeks ago that Bridge Road Bistro had started offering a new Saturday morning brunch menu, I had no idea that wasn’t the only new project up the South Hills restaurant’s sleeve.
Two of Charleston’s higher-end restaurants released new menus last week, with both South Hills’ The Market and downtown’s Ristorante Abruzzi rolling out new eats.
In local restaurant news, downtown’s Axes and Ales has new owners and expanded hours, a local sushi grill closes, a new Chinese buffet is on the way, a Spencer bakery is making waves and Habitat for Humanity wants your help picking which restaurant to feature at its upcoming “A Taste of ...”…
You know how you’re sometimes on a long trip when hunger strikes, leaving you searching for the nearest non-fast food stop to fuel up on good eats?
In the first significant revamp of its Charleston location’s more than five-year history, Black Sheep Burrito and Brews at the Brewery just launched a colorful amped-up menu offering several new dishes and removing a couple of longtime options as well.
If you remember me going all ga-ga over last year’s inaugural “Sip & Savor: A Bourbon & Bites Bash,” you might want to brace yourself for another lovefest.
In breaking local restaurant news, while one Kanawha City coffee spot closes, another downtown Charleston café is getting ready to expand its food offerings by opening a larger second location — also in downtown Charleston.
While Starbucks quietly opened a new location in Kanawha City last week, another locally owned coffee shop did the same in late June less than two miles down the road.
When I tell you I finally made it down to sample authentic European pastries, cakes and gelato at Sokolata in Spring Hill, I’m saying I did it in a big way.
In breaking local food news, I was thrilled to learn that the long-awaited Karubee’s Jamaican Restaurant finally found a home and is now open for business.
Nine West Virginia restaurants have been honored by Wine Spectator for offering the best wine selections paired with equally fine cuisine. That’s quite an honor, although the local list is a little shorter than years past, when as many as 11 to 13 Mountain State restaurants were recognized.
Pretty much every time I’m bee-bopping around town enjoying a drink or dinner, checking out a local event or zipping through the grocery store, someone I see is going to pop the question: “So Food Guy, what are the best new restaurants in town?”
If you’re attending Saturday’s big Wine & Jazz Music Festival at the University of Charleston and want to know the best wines to try that night, you’ve come to the right place.
