Our list of good & nearby restaurants to eat at after visiting us! Nom!

You probably visit us for our awesome events, leaving hungry and wondering where the heck to eat! So, here is a list of our favorite nearby restaurants! Unless you live in the area, these are places you probably haven’t tried – but will make a point of going back to once you do!

Since I’m not an official food blogger, I will just give you tiny bit of info on why we like the place and how far they are away from TATE’S/Bear and Bird, plus link you to Urban Spoon for reviews and details…! 🙂

All of these restaurants have been “tested” multiple times by us… nom nom! The prices are all very reasonable – especially once you taste it! None of these are “fancy fancy”, but all are clean, fresh and locally owned. No fatty corporate chains… it seems like the owners of these places actually CARE about their restaurants, which is important to us.

Hope you enjoy them as much as we have! Promise we wouldn’t steer you wrong. We don’t like crappy meals! Please tell them that we sent you over!

Bash Wine Cafe – 4 miles from TATE’S/Bear and Bird

Food here is really delicious, anything from salads to steaks. A really nice place to take a date or a small group of friends for some great food and conversation! Features local art on the walls and lots of wine and beer if that’s your thing!

Marumi Sushi – 3 miles from TATE’S/Bear and Bird

Open until 1:30 in the morning! This is where local sushi chefs go AFTER they get off work to eat and hang out. The food is that good. If you like fresh sushi or Japanese comfort food, you will love this place and go back ASAP!

India House – 2.7 miles from TATE’S/Bear and Bird

The menu here is HUGE and they have a bunch of tasty naan options. There are meats and flavors from all over India. It is usually pretty empty and the food is quite great!

Woodlands Pure Vegetarian South Indian Cuisine – 0.5 miles from TATE’S/Bear and Bird

Vegetarian option for those of you who swing that way! People we have sent there usually end up being big fans and return time after time to nom on their tasty non-meat options.

Thai Thai – 3 miles from TATE’S/Bear and Bird

Lots of dusty fake orchids, which is lame – but good pad thai and other thai dishes. They also have decent sushi… but we never get sushi when we eat here! For that we always go to Marumi!

La Bamba – 4.2 miles from TATE’S/Bear and Bird

We get take-out from this Mexican restaurant at least once a week. It is fresh and fast and really yummy. Pollo ala Plancha and Shrimp Fajitas are a couple faves… and the mild salsa is just perfect with their crunchy tortilla chips.

Bamboo Noah’s – 6 miles from TATE’S/Bear and Bird (on way back to 595)

Really fresh and diverse menu. Makes me feel like I am eating healthy food that makes my tummy smile. Also they have cupcakes and whoopee pies sometimes!

Jimmie’s Chocolates & Cafe – 15 miles from TATE’S/Bear and Bird (kind of far, but so so good)

The amazing little chocolate shop closes early, but the food in the cafe is fantastic. One of my favorite things ever is their amazing hot chocolate! Its just right, not to sweet and you stir it all up yourself with a ceramic long handled spoon. The chef/owner is in the kitchen and he really cares about the food he is preparing for you! Go!
