Each week, we tap into our vibrant network of bloggers across the country to find the top restaurant news and reviews. Here are this week’s:
In Denver, Culinary Connectors drops into Café/Bar and tries their "Spring Salad" of grilled asparagus, zucchini, pickled grapes, lentil, and arugula, topped with house-made green harissa yogurt sauce, as well as the funky-sounding banana zucchini fritter with a corn-coconut sauce.
Creole Contessa visited Novecento 900 in Las Vegas with the intention of just trying the margherita with pepperoni, but ended up liking it so much that she got a second one with sausage. She also took some drool-worthy photos.
Bella Vivere checked out Chai Pani in Decatur, Fla., which is focused on Indian street food. They got the sloppy Joe-inspired "Sloppy Jai," a spiced lamb hash simmered with tomatoes, ginger, and aromatic spices, all washed down with a house-made raspberry lime rickey.
Pop Bop Shop met up with a few friends and visited Spoke, a new wine bar in Boston. The food is all made up of small plates, and they tried some spreads, a beet salad, a couple of sandwiches, and pasta.
