Noshing

Have you been noshing lately? I like the word. I love the restaurant.

I spent most of the weekend in Durham mixing my new "Blue Ridge Reunion" CD with Wes Lachot and John Plymale at Overdub Lane. Not only are they incredibly talented musicians and studio wizards they always have interesting ideas for lunch.

Wes picked the place for Saturday and John did the honors on Sunday. As a nationally acclaimed studio architect Wes is on the road a lot. He tries hard to eat healthy. His restaurant pick for Saturday - McDonald's across the street. "You've got to be kidding," I thought. Wes insisted the salads at McDonald's are great. With great skepticism I ordered the Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. It was terrific. The chicken was perfectly cooked and the salad was fresh and light.

John took us to Nosh on Sunday. Nosh is a cool new restaurant near Duke Hospital. Nosh has lots of great healthy salads but I opted for the Rascal's Razmatazz burger with havarti cheese. Absolutely awesome! One of the best ever. John says Nosh has become the favorite restaurant among his musical clients.

Have you been "noshing" lately? If so, where?
