The Treehouse, the intimate Five Points restaurant that opened back in October, gets the treatment from the Nashville Scene's Carrington Fox, and she finds a great deal of "creativity, freshness and flavor on the table." Meal highlights called out include the pickle plate ("not....what you expect"), a "hearty spin on the classic patatas bravas" and pan-seared trout ("looked positively sharklike, plated with two silver-skinned triangles of delicately seared fish"), among others. Complaints are few, with both aimed at the texture of various sauces. In the end, Fox declares that "[W]e'll be back. Often."
The Tennessean's Nancy Vienneau gives relative Germantown newcomer Flour. Sugar. Eggs. Bakery & Sandwich Shoppe a look, seeing it as "a real boon (or dangerous temptation) to the neighborhood." Vienneau roundly praises all aspects, stating that the combination of a cafe au lait and butter croissant "was as good a petit dejeuner as I've had in the City of Lights." Also recommended are the lunch selections, particularly the panini, with Vienneau admitting that "[t]he fillings are good, if a little meager (another deli slice would be nice). But it's her bread and the sriracha mayonnaise that makes 'em sing."
