Carrabba's Italian Grill Reviewed by Perry Crabill on . On Sunday, February 5, 2017, my daughter and I had lunch at Carrabba’s Italian Grill, at 231 Kernstown Commons Boulevard, in the Kernstown Shopping Center off Route 11, the Valley Pike, just south of Route 37 and I-81 Exit 310. Hours are Monday-Thursday, 4:00 PM-10:00 PM; Friday and Saturday, 11:00 AM-11:00 PM; Sunday, 11:00 AM-10:00 PM. The phone number is 540-868-7665. The national Web page for Carrabba’s is www.carrabbas.com, and carryout is available. Handicapped parking is on the left side of the building, and the entrance near the left front has a small vestibule. A covered front porch has benches on the left side and tables to your right. Carrabba’s is a fairly large restaurant. Just inside is a receptionist’s station. One thing I noticed as soon as we entered was the strong smell of onions and garlic, but it soon was less noticeable. The bar area is along the left wall, with a chest-high divider separating it from the main dining space. It has high-rise tables and chairs in addition to high-rise seats at the bar, and several TV screens. The main dining area has booths along the bar divider and the front and left walls, with tables elsewhere. The kitchen in the rear has two sections. The one in the left is a closed room, but the right section is L-shaped and extends partly along the right wall. It is bounded by a glass-topped divider that lets you watch some of the food preparation. High-rise tables and chairs are against the divider for those who want the closest possible view. The floor is dark imitation hardwood; the ceiling is light acoustic material. Lighting in the dining section is primarily bulbs recessed in the ceiling; hanging shaded lights are in the bar area. Background noise is noticeable, and includes sounds from the kitchen. Music is audible enough to be almost intrusive. We elected to be seated in a booth, and Ashley, our server, took our orders for iced tea. She gave us a basket of warm Italian bread, along with a plate of olive oil with herbs, since this was a proper Italian restaurant and doesn’t serve butter. The larger of two menus included Appetizers, Wood-Fired Pizza, Soups and Salads, Pasta, Chicken, Pork & Veal, Steaks & Chops, Seafood, Combinations, Wine, Italian Sangria & Cocktails, Craft & Bottled Beers, and Beverages. Several dishes usually offered as staples in other Italian restaurants, such as chicken, eggplant, or veal Parmigiana were missing. The smaller menu apparently had limited-time offerings: Chicken Parmesan Lasagna, a new dish, along with some other items and specials such as Amore Monday, Tasting Tuesday, Pizza & Wine Wednesday, and Signature Selections. A 50% reduction, up to $20.00, applies to every fourth visit. My daughter decided on the Chicken Parmesan Lasagna as soon as she saw it listed on the smaller menu. I ordered Chicken Marsala, topped with mushrooms and a brown Marsala wine sauce, with grilled asparagus. I opted for Lentil Sausage Soup instead of a salad, and found it to be the best lentil soup I had ever tasted. We divided a pair of Mini Cannoli for dessert. The food was very good, but a bit pricey. I was troubled by the price of $2.99 for a glass of unsweetened iced tea, and will have water the next time. Carrabba’s is definitely a keeper in my book for occasional splurging. I first reviewed Carrabba's on July 6, 2012, after it had been open for six months. The menu has changed only slightly since then, and its servers are no longer exclusively male. Rating: 5

Sweet NOLA's Reviewed by Perry Crabill on . On Saturday, February 11, 2017, I had lunch at Sweet Nola’s Southern Food Lounge at 688 North Loudoun Street in Winchester, Virginia. Its parking lot along the south side of the building is accessible from both Loudoun and Cameron Streets, and has handicapped parking. Nola’s is closed on Sunday and Monday. Hours are Lunch, Tuesday-Saturday, 12:00 PM-3:00 PM; Dinner, Wednesday & Thursday, 5:00 PM-8:00 PM; Friday & Saturday, 5:00 PM-9:00 PM. The telephone is 540-667-6652, and the Web page is www.sweetnolas.com. Nola’s is also on Facebook, which lists its monthly and other evening music events. A patio on the building’s street side has four sets of metal tables and chairs. Entry is from the parking lot side of the building, near the front, where you can hear loud New Orleans Jazz before you go in. Retro items here include a pay telephone and gas pump, neither is functional. A scattering of oyster shells next to the building is part of the atmosphere. There is no vestibule. The entry area is a small room with the cashier’s counter on your right. On the left a lounging space has casual seating with sofas, a table with games, and an overstuffed chair. The main dining room is beyond this area and has booths along the front and side walls. Tables are also elsewhere in this room, and a honky-tonk piano is against the side wall to your right. The walls have all sorts of decorations relating to Louisiana, New Orleans, and the Mardi Gras. Strings of beads are all around on the front door, and on the walls, this relates to the tradition of bead throwing to the crowds from the Mardi Gras Parade floats. Lighting is by four small, mismatched retro chandeliers. The music I heard on the parking lot is also inside, but not overly loud. The place is somewhat noisy, but the overall ambiance is cozy. The single-sheet, double-sided menu’s categories include Embarkations: Small Plates, Uppity Starts, Ala Carte & Salads, Artisan Soups, Gumbos and Beans n’ Rice. The flip side lists Po’ Boys, Assietes a’ Desserts, and Beverages. Po’ Boys, the Cajun version of submarine sandwiches, are 7.5 inches; a Short Boy is half of a Po’ Boy. One item was Alligator Sausage. Beverages include assorted Bottle Sodas, genuine Luzianne Iced Tea, Coffee, and Hot Tea varieties in a pot. Today’s Daily Special was a combination of any Short Boy and a cup of any of the soups. I chose a Hot Sausage Short Boy and a cup of Creole Tomato Bisque. My beverage was a 12-oz. bottle of Stewart Key Lime Soda, made with real sugar, with a glass of ice and a straw. It had 180 calories and no caffeine. The sandwich was on a split half roll, piled high with slices of sausage, grilled peppers, and onions, over shredded lettuce and cabbage. It was too thick to eat by hand, and I used a knife and fork to tackle it. The sandwich was very good, but the next time I order a Half Boy I’ll ask that the lettuce and cabbage be omitted. The soup was also very good, and neither item was too spicy. I don’t usually have dessert with lunch, but Banana’s Foster Pudding sounded too enticing to pass up. It was served in a two-handled glass mug, with chunks of banana immersed in southern pudding, topped with a mound of whipped cream holding a buttery shortbread cookie. It was sinfully rich. Sweet Nola’s is the eleventh food operation I have seen at this location. It opened in May 2015, and I first reviewed it a month later. Nola is an acronym for New Orleans, LA. When I moved here in 1982 it was a Bulgarian restaurant called the Café Sofia. After they relocated to Valley Avenue, 688 North Loudoun became Jesse’s Place, and then a Mexican restaurant that didn’t last a year before it was replaced by an operation simply called Charlie’s. Other eateries here were Carolina Pizza, followed by Anthony’s Pizza. Next was Jimbo’s, which opened in the fall of 2010. It was replaced in the summer of 2011 by Knossos, a Greek place that didn’t last very long. It was followed by the Old Town Diner, with the Seven Countries Family Restaurant as the tenth occupant. I rate Nola’s as a keeper. Rating: 5
