Guide Review - radius10 Review
Some might call this a bit underhanded, but honestly, I don't think there's a better way to truly critique some places other than to do so when the "boss is away." So, after a brief late afternoon stop downtown to make sure that the owner of radious10, was still preoccupied with the CMAfest "Fiesta Celebrity Grilling Challenge", I made my exit to radius10.
radius10 is nestled in between Broadway and Demonbreun just across the Demonbreun Bridge and it offers a wonderful view of the Union Station Hotel and Cummings Station. The interior decor is highlighted with, cold colors that include; whites, blacks and grays. This took me back a bit as I tend to find myself attracted to cozier places rather than the more urban decors. Although, when the first course arrived, it brought with it an explosion of radiant colors and I realized that the entire focus of radius10 is not only on the taste and flavor of the food but also in the presentation.
I found myself eagerly anticipating each course from the "Chef's Tasting Menu"($40) as I knew that it would not only be bringing me a new radiant piece of art to enjoy but also plenty of delectable treats to tempt my palate. For wine, I chose a 2005 German Resling, Von Schleinitz Koberner Weisenberg, which would not have been the most perfect choice for many as it tends to be a lush and more textural wine.
