Tim's restaurant hopping turns up intriguing and satisfying bites - covering everything from street food to fine dining. He picks three "Best Bites" every week to share with Connect readers:


Caraway Cafe

Sometimes, I just gotta have a salad. When that happens, I go for the Spinach Salad from this near Southside breakfast and lunch restaurant. Fresh spinach is topped with sweet and tart Mandarin oranges, briny olives, sliced red onions and generous crumbles of Feta cheese. Not too light, not too heavy, this is one of several lighter options on a menu that emphasizes fresh, flavorful and healthy dishes.

5002 Paulsen St. # 105



Cha Bella

The daily flatbread special at this downtown eatery packs 'em in at lunch! My recent favorite was a handmade flatbread crust topped with grilled shrimp, tasty cherry tomato halves and basil fresh from the garden. There's just enough cheese to add texture and taste - without overpowering the shrimp and veggies.

102 E. Broad St.



Kasey's Gourmet Grille

Fish and Chips gets a makeover with Kasey's version - which uses strips of Tilapia instead of the typical Cod. The batter is well seasoned and delivers a nice crunch. Accompanying French fries are likewise crisp on the outside, tender on the inside - and bathed with salt sprinkles. This is a new dish on Kasey's lunch menu - which has also had a makeover.

4829 Waters Ave.
