Lunching around

Taqueria del Sol is serving one of my favorite specials this week, the shrimp and grits surrounded by jalapeno-tomato salsa. But I was happy to encounter a potentially addictive taco special too.

Chef Eddie Hernandez's latest wacky invention features a flour tortilla filled with full-sized fried chicken livers, avocado sauce, pickled red onions and chopped spinach. As "Taco Nazi" George Trusler said, it's like the Colonnade's perfect fried livers with a Southwestern treatment. I'll be back for more and more this week....

Friday, I lunched with friends at Cafe 640 (formerly Cafe di Sol) in Poncey Highland. I ordered an antipasto plate, a terrific bargain at $12 with eight different ingredients, including three cured meats from Pine Street Market and Sweet Grass Dairy's Camembert.

My friends ordered pepadew peppers stuffed with prosciutto and Gruyere, a turkey burger with Gruyere and a pastrami Reuben sandwich with sauerkraut, remoulade and — yep — more Gruyere.

Incidentally, we ended up at Cafe 640 after heading to the new La Mongerie bistro, featured last week by Thrillist. As it turned out, it was not open despite the Thrillist tip, and, at this writing, it's still not open....
