(Nerd) Lunch Special: Tallahassee Chef's Sampler 2010

I've been here before and I'll say now what I said then...Och.

Forty-six (see below for complete list) dining establishments from Tallahassee and surrounding areas converged on the Tallahassee Mall this evening to set up the city's largest all-you-can-eat buffet. And once again, I was able to score some complimentary tickets and partake of this celebration of gluttony. (Captain Marvel would be so ashamed.)

In 2008, my wife and I only ate at 13 of the 50. This time, we upped our score to 16 of 46. So...go us or something.

Last time I did this, I didn't have an iPhone and offered no pictures so my review was lots of boring words.  This time, I'll spare you the horribly verbose blog post and offer the three best places then point you to the Nerd Lunch Facebook Fan Page where you can see a gallery of all the images I took each with a detailed caption describing what I ate.  You should be able to view them without becoming a fan, but while you're there, why not?

Hobbit's American Grill

This might have been my favorite stop of the night, but it's so hard to say. Chicken club wrap on the left and a fiesta ranch chicken wing on the right. This was from Hobbit American Grill. Should have known Hobbits would make awesome food what with their six meals a day plan. (There were no second breakfast samples this evening.)

Cabo's Island Bar & Grill

This place served up an awesome cup of chili. Cabo's is going on the list of places to visit for the chili alone.

Lucy & Leo's Cupcakery

What would be an event like this without "one more bite" of something. Here's a chocolate cupcake topped with chocolate icing and a chocolate covered coffee bean from Lucy & Leo's Cupcakery. Mighty good bite to end on. Thank you Lucy and Leo.
