Bear Bites: El Camino

Bear Bites: El Camino

Nick Wooten, Managing Editor

April 28, 2016

El Camino, touted as Macon’s first and only authentic taqueria and cantina, is a delightful deviation from the Moonhanger Group’s other popular establishments. The lively, tavern-esque Rookery; the farm-to-table fine-dining Dovetail; and the historic H&H have found their formidable fourth....

April 13, 2016

You’ll be hard pressed to find a restaurant like Roasted anywhere. The cafe, lounge and venue space serves up fresh beats, sandwiches and now, a dinner menu highlighted by Mediterranean dishes that allow Roasted to flex a variety of muscles. We wanted to do this a little differently. So,...

Any pun I can make here isn’t fit for print, so I’ll keep it simple: Pho is delicious. I’ve had few encounters with the wonderful Vietnamese noodle soup, but I’ve loved every one. The mint and basil flavors poking through the meaty broth with hints of just a little bit of sriracha and hoisin...

Bear Bites: Joy’s Home Cooking Buffet

Bear Bites: Joy’s Home Cooking Buffet

Nick Wooten, Managing Editor

March 16, 2016

All-you-can-eat buffets exemplify everything exceptional and abhorrent about being American. The bright hotlamps, staggering variety and snot-nosed children who don’t understand the concept of tongs are ever-present working cogs in America’s most nauseating capitalistic ventures. They resul...

Bear Bites: Bearfoot Tavern

Nicholas Wooten, Managing Editor

February 24, 2016

Bearfoot Tavern is back from an extensive facelift. I’m probably not the first person to say this, but it's about time. In the past, when a friend suggested a meal at Bearfoot, I felt my taste buds protest in disgust. Now, with a new menu, a new location and a pub-esque façade, the recently ...

Bear Bites: Metropolis

Bear Bites: Metropolis

Nicholas Wooten, Managing Editor

January 27, 2016

Let me be frank: Indian cuisine is not in my gustatory wheelhouse. I come from a poor, white Southern family that fries anything that can be floured and cooks nearly every vegetable with pork. But, as with my love of sushi, my parents’ taste will not indefinitely define my own. I’ve had Indian fo...

Bear Bites: Ninja

Bear Bites: Ninja

November 11, 2015

Mulberry Street Lane is unassuming to the untrained eye. But the narrow alleyway is steeped in history. At the Downtown Grill, diners can sit at the booth where Greg Allman proposed to Cher. Somewhere over there, rock and roll star Little Richard was arrested for soliciting a male prostitute. But the...
