Now open is The Sutler Saloon in the Melrose Development. It’s a hopping joint that features Southern craft cocktails & beer, creative Southern cuisine, and authentic live music. There are actually two levels, which means twice the FUN! The main level offers a place to enjoy their drink menu, order up some food, and bob your head to the music. The Cellar Bar located downstairs offers its own menu with lounge seating, a fireplace, and space for private events. The food menu offers a little bit for everyone, and you have to try the Pit Smoked Loaded Mac. This fantastic meal features bubbly wagon wheels, charred broccolini, bbq brisket burnt ends, and blistered cherry tomatoes in creamy Yazoo ale five cheese sauce, baked in a skillet and topped with happy crumbs. A meal that warms the soul, and fills the stomach.
Not much longer and the cool air will start blowing in Music City. That means you need to soak up as much patio fun as you possible can. Zumi’s Sushi in Hillsboro Village has an outstanding patio area that creates an atmosphere perfect for enjoying some fantastic rolls. They have all sorts to choose from, but we always enjoy the Liberty Bell. The ingredients include cucumber, cream cheese topped with avocado, salmon and miso ginger sauce. The crunch is awesome from the cucumber which adds to the fresh salmon, and then the cream cheese gives it a taste that compliments the rest. The staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable so if the Liberty Bell doesn’t meet your fancy just ask your server. They will help you out!
We hope you don’t have any plans tomorrow night, because we have something really special. Saffire Restaurant & Bar is unique restaurant located right inside the historic Factory at Franklin. They combine locally-grown produce with indigenous flavors and exotic ingredients to deliver creative cuisine found no where else. You cannot go wrong with the Peach Glazed Pork Chop. A pit-smoked, grilled pork chop with house made peach glaze, turnip greens, and creme fraiche mashed potatoes. The meat is tender, the glaze is sweet, and the mashed potatoes compliment the meat making this a fantastic dinner choice for anyone.
The other cool thing is Factory at Franklin hosts Music City Roots every single Wednesday. It’s a two hour live radio show and concert that revives the historic legacy of live musical radio production in Nashville. So, head to Saffire Restaurant & Bar, order an amazing dinner, and then head on over to see Music City Roots. It’s all the ingredients one needs to make a night in Music City special.

It’s here! Opening day for the Tennessee Titans regular season has finally graced us with its presence. WE LOVE IT! For those who can not make it to the game. It’s ok. We have the perfect spot for you to relax and enjoy some Music City NFL Football. The Pub Nashville over in the Gulch offers a mix of beers from around the world with some pretty fantastic food choices. Items like the Belhaven Beer Cheese. What’s really special is the pretzel bites that comes with this awesome plate. Salty, thick, and soft pretzel bites that compliment the cheese perfectly. It’s amazing. Almost as amazing as opening day … Well maybe not that amazing, but it’s still pretty darn good. Grab some friends, put on your teams colors, and make your way to The Pub Nashville for a great day of NFL in Nashville.

Mirko’s Pasta is located in Donelson just 12 miles from downtown Nashville. Try it out!
There’s a new restaurant on 8th Avenue that is quickly getting praise from locals and visitors. It’s called Sinema Restaurant & Bar and it has a unique atmosphere that is sleek with an entire experience that hinges on impeccable service. The walls are filled with head shots from old actors. Up the grand stair case guests are invited to enjoy a nice cocktail while they order from a menu called “concessions” in their lounge. For the main course the menu offers eclectic items like the French Onion Frites. A 10oz prime rib eye with “French onion soup” on top served with fries. The “French onion soup” is actually French onion soaked croutons with melted white cheddar & Gruyere on top. An amazing and unique steak to be enjoyed by all.
