Over in The Gulch is a restaurant with both style and grace. An eclectic atmosphere and a whiskey lovers heaven. We’re talking about the Whiskey Kitchen. The menu is a mix of chef-inspired pub favorites, southern classics, and wood-fired pizzas. Just the other week we went with the Whiskey Kitchen Hot Chicken (of course). A fantastic version of Nashville’s staple food. The chicken is fried, spiced, and atop some amazing green beans. The chipotle mac & cheese it came with might be the best darn thing we have ever tried. Seriously, after the meal was done we ordered a side of mac & cheese to go. It was that good.
For a warm atmosphere, premier cuisine, and impeccable service head to The Bound’ry Restaurant located in West End. They have an extensive wine selection with a staff that is very knowledgable and there to help if you may need it. Guests are welcome to choose seating inside or outside with patio tables complete with their own fire pits which will keep you warm even on a chilly night. Their menu has a style of its own featuring an excellent selection of salads, seafood dishes, and more. Just the other day we tried their Belgian Caesar Salad and fell in love on the spot. It’s a stacked salad with shaved brussels, heirloom cherry tomatoes, asiago, focaccia crumbs, and avocado caesar dressing. So delightful and the perfect meal for a chilly fall night in Music City.
Game 7 of the World Series is TONIGHT! Leaving the obvious question, where will you be watching the game in Music City? We happen to know the perfect place. Bailey’s Sports Grille located in Downtown Nashville has over 100 different beers, a full menu until 2:30am, and 40 HD televisions that will have the game on for sure! We love their Barnyard Burger. This baby is served with angus beef, applewood smoked bacon, white american cheese sunny-side up fried egg, and mayonnaise on the side. Big, juicy, and a fantastic meal to prepare you for a legendary game in Nashville
Have the real authentic taste of old Germany in Music City at the Gerst Haus! You walk in and instantly smell the flavorful aromas of German sausages. What’s really cool is their combination dinners which allows you to sample three different traditional sausages with your choice of two sides. Everything from bratwurst to kelbasa sausages. No matter what you choose you can guarantee one thing. It will be hearty and delicious.
Oh Monday’s can be a bit of a drag. You’re running a little slow due to a fun filled weekend, and work just keeps knocking you down. That’s ok, we understand. We have a cure. Nashville’s staple Hot Chicken always gets us in a good mood and puts a smile on our face. That’s why we are heading to Helen’s Hot Chicken on Rosa L Parks Blvd in Downtown Nashville. Their flavors include plain, mild, hot, and hella. We always go with the breast quarter hot. Just enough to enjoy the taste and get your forehead sweating. They also give you plenty of pickles to help mask the heat a bit and give a sweet taste to it. A great place to forget the worries of a Monday and enjoy Nashville’s culinary staple food. Go check them out!
My dear friends. We have a must for you to try. Belle Nashville Pizzeria preserves the techniques of old Italy while offering a unique taste and experience in Music City. Their oven is made from an organic Terre Blanche white clay. Their mozzarella and dough is made in house daily. Their toppings come from local meats and produce. Their sodas are made in house from fresh squeezed juice and unrefined turbinado sugar. Their whole wheat bread and pizza options are made from house milled organic wheat berries. Are you starting to see a trend? These guys don’t mess around when it comes to offering you delicious, organic, and locally sourced food. It’s what they do. For your first time order their Margherita Pizza with mozzarella, crush tomatoes, and basil. You could say a lot about this wonderful nine inch pizza, but we rather say it in two words: heavenly divine. Go get it!
Today we have a double whammy! A two for one if you will. We are talking about the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum plus its awesome restaurant, Two Twenty-Two, that is open for lunch and dinner. That way you can go exploring through the many awesome Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibits and then have an excellent meal to reminisce all you have seen. The menu features locally sourced meals all made from scratch. Just like their Fried Green Tomato sandwich. It’s packed with pimento cheese, bacon, smoked tomato chutney, and fried green tomatoes. A meal so fine, I guarantee a few of the Country Music Hall of Fame inductees have even given it a try.
