Nashville has many great things to offer. The people, the beautiful clean streets, awesome places to relax and enjoy the company of your friends, and the food. Oh god the food. My mouth drooled by just writing that. Remembering all the awesome food I ate makes me miss Nashville so much! If you are planning on travelling there you’ve come to the right place to start your day with amazing food!
Arnold’s Country Kitchen
This is where my boyfriend and I had our first taste of Nashville food. However, we didn’t expect its high popularity so the line to get inside was a bit long. It was 11:30 am on Friday and the line was out to the street. Locals and tourists grabbed trays and picked out meats and side dishes and dessert, then found a spot at one of the tables. This is southern cooking is simply amazing!
The Southern Steak & Oyster
The Southern is the place to go if you want an upscale restaurant with a gourmet menu and reasonable prices. The Southern is within walking distance of Broadway, located not far from the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
To be honest, my boyfriend and I weren’t expecting much of this place. But oh, the food was so good. There were so many things on the menu that we wanted to try. According to our waitress, Merchants’ hottest dishes are the Chicken Fried Chicken and the fish tacos. My boyfriend went for the fish tacos and I ate the grilled salmon BLT. Both were very good.
Over and over we kept hearing about Loveless Cafe, so much so that we couldn’t skip it. Tim and I were surprised to learn that one of Nashville’s most popular restaurants is located so far from downtown. In fact, Loveless Cafe is thirty minutes away from downtown Nashville by car.
This is the most upscale restaurant on the list and consistently gets stellar reviews from its clients. It is located across the street from The Southern (mentioned above). With entrees in the $30 ballpark it was a little out of our price range so we chose The Southern instead. Etch is a modern, trendy restaurant that serves dishes like octopus and shrimp bruschetta, grilled lamb loin, and grilled filet. (Source: eatforever.com).
