Are you hungry, Brentwood? We’re sure you will be when you read—or should we say devour—this issue, the most drool-worthy one of the year: the Foodie issue! We spent the last few months scouring the streets in search of the most delicious bites our city has to offer, and we found more than enough material to fill these pages. We also found a great vehicle to take on a date night in search of the perfect meal: the Audi Q3. View it on Page XX.

Narrowing down all the sensational local flavors and global cuisines in town was no easy task, but we are confident this issue is an accurate representation of our emerging reputation as a true dining destination. On Page XX, we catch up with Hunter Sympson of Brentwood-based The Mobile Chef, who meets his diners where they are.

While we don’t like to play favorites, the Foodie issue is near and dear to our hearts. After all, food is not only nourishing (and delicious) but it also brings people together—whether it’s a special anniversary dinner, a much-needed lunch break with coworkers, a friend’s birthday party or even a casual weeknight meal with family. Food is often considered one of life’s great pleasures—so is wine to many people, which was evidenced by experiences through Uncorked Encounters on Page XX.

Consider this issue your foodie guide to Brentwood, featuring the best places to satisfy your hunger (and thirst.) Feeling inspired by the pros? Channel your inner chef and whip up a Brentwood Lifestyle-approved recipe (or two) in your own kitchen! See Page XX to get started.

Dig in, Brentwood!
