Sinema's New 'Seven Delicious Sins' Menu Series Begins With a Stoner-Paradise Dessert Called 'Rocky Roadkill'

"Death by chocolate" is a phrase so cliché that I have come to find that any dessert being referred to as such is usually quite boring and not even dangerous, let alone deadly. But this morning, when I received a press release about Sinema's new Seven Delicious Sins menu series, which kicks off tonight with a "death-by-chocolate inspired dessert," I started to think perhaps there are still some instances in which the phrase can apply. Because LOOK AT THIS DESSERT:

MUSIC CITY FOOD & WINE 2014: A RECAP

I could spend days writing this blog post. Not kidding. DAYS. Our town’s 2nd Music City Food + Wine Festival has come and gone, and it was a doozy.

As I sat here going through all of my photos, it hit me hard how much I love Nashville and more specifically, our food community. This past weekend was absolutely incredible. My heart and my belly were filled as I got to eat delicious things, listen to incredible music, meet interesting new people, and spend quality time with dear friends I don’t get to see nearly enough of.

SINEMA NASHVILLE

As Nashville’s stature as a culinary hot spot continues to grow, chefs from across the country are flocking to town to open restaurants and take advantage of the national buzz. In many cases, these outposts are simply additions to a chain, with the name-brand chefs behind the projects making occasional appearances in the kitchen while running their empires from other cities. But Sinema, the new showcase restaurant of Top Chef season-three alum Dale Levitski, is not that sort of venture. - See more at: http://nashvillelifestyles.com/restaurants/sinema-nashville#sthash.aLwde0LE.dpuf

Finding the best desserts in nashville

Take my advice: go to the cocktail lounge at Sinema and simply say, “I want Sugar.”

The Sugar Plate is only available on Sinema’s concessions menu, which is in their upper level lounge. It’s the perfect ending for an evening with a group of friends, because you have several small bites to share; a variety of miniature baked, frosted & spun desserts (including cotton candy!) The selection pictured above is Creme Brûlée, Grasshopper, Blackberry Cream Puffs, Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies, Chocolate Bouchon, Blueberry muffin, Lemon Meringue Tart, and Passion Fruit Bars, but that might not be exactly what you get when you order. You see, the plate constantly changes, which I think adds to the fun!
