The End of an Era
If you can recall, my last "non-local" meal before entering the Eat Local Challenge, it was a prime rib and salad dinner at the Fifth Quarter in Nashville. The deal is, I love prime rib, and the 65 item salad bar is always fun. I thought that I probably would not eat there again until next year, but we happened to be driving by, and I decided that I wanted one of my birthday dinner's next month to be at the Fifth Quarter because they were the best makers of a rare prime rib.
But this is what we found. I guess the charm of the original 1970's decor and Gallo wine wasn't holding the modern diner captive. There are few other steak houses in downtown and the west end of town, some which are quite expensive, some that are chains, and all of them that I have been to cannot make a good rare prime rib like the Fifth Quarter. OK folks, I guess I gotta move on. Sorry Fifth Quarter, sorry to see you go.
