Local barbecue fans were thrilled in July 2009 when Judge Bean's Bar-B-Que opened on East Church Street. The well-known barbecue and live music joint thrived in downtown Nashville for eight years before moving to its location in Brentwood. Famous for Texas barbecue (made with beef, not pork), Judge Bean's smokes its brisket for at least 16 hours with mesquite wood and serves it piled high on a sesame seed bun with side items such as smoked green beans, fresh-cut fries, coleslaw and spicy cowboy beans.
The Chill Spot, a laid-back cafe, is known for its fresh wrap sandwiches and a unique drink called bubble tea. "Bubble tea is a drink from Taiwan that was first created to get kids to drink tea because of its health benefits," says Zindan Berwary, who owns Chill Spot with his brother, Jerwan. "They added flavorings and tapioca pearls to the tea. The pearls are gummy and sink to the bottom of the glass, so you chew them while you're drinking through a straw. It's like chewing a Gummi Bear."
