Pretty fall days are the perfect time to take a stroll down Nashville’s Broadway. You get to see all the best Honky Tonks, do a little shopping, and there are awesome restaurants to take break at like Cherry Street Eatery & Sweetery. It’s located right inside the West Lobby of the gorgeous Schermerhorn Symphony Center. They have an excellent selection of sandwiches hand crafted with the freshest ingredients. Their Cherry Street Veg is one of our favorites with grilled eggplant, red onion, roasted tomato-red pepper tapenade, arugula, and goat cheese on whole wheat. Both good for you and absolutely delicious. Also, the Cherry Street Eatery & Sweetery has a patio perfect for enjoying these last weeks of cool temperatures in Music City.
It’s Thursday and TONIGHT the Nashville Predators take on the Chicago Blackhawks. We are so excited and we know just the place for those going to the game or looking for a place to watch it. The Tavern ’96 is located right outside of Bridgestone Arena (home to the Nashville Predators) and have an excellent selection on tap, a full menu, and the Predators on the screen. You can head on over for an amazing dinner before, after, or during the game. They have appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, and flat bread pizzas. We love their Summer Veggie Flat Bread. Compiled of caramelized onions, mushrooms, grilled squash, fresh tomatos, mozarella, and ricotta. Filling and a great mixture of fresh ingredients. The caramelized onions are our favorite part giving it a zesty sweet taste not found anywhere else. Go check it out, and GO PREDATORS!
Over in West Nashville is Bria Bistro Italiano, a small intimate Italian restaurant with a superb wine menu perfect for a romantic evening on the town. Enter the building and instantly be greeted by a friendly staff member waiting to seat you for a wonderful meal. The kitchen is open with a brick oven that enhances the already warm atmosphere and overall dining experience. They have a multitude of Italian favorites to choose from including the Lasagna. This dish consists of baked ribbons of pasta, sausage, sliced meatballs, ricotta, mozzarella, and bolognese sauce. A beautiful and tasty rendition of an Italian classic that will make you a fan of Bria Bistro Italiano for years to come.
The World Series starts tonight! While it might not be in Music City we know one of the best places to watch the game. The Field House in East Nashville is hosting a World Series Party with 2-4-1domestic drafts and well drinks. Need we say more? Probable not, but we will. Their menu is outstanding and focuses on bacon. That’s right, bacon. To celebrate one of America’s favorite tradition we say you order the Pig in a Pig. That’s a beer brat topped with benton’s bacon, chili, queso sauce, and green onions. Delicious and perfect for watching baseball in Music City! See you there!
Ladies and gentleman. Today’s meal is perfection. It is more than a work of art. It is a work of genius that should be enjoyed by all at least once in their life. The Double Cut Pork Chop at Urban Grub. First off, this pork chop is huge. It is cooked to medium making it very tender. A solid piece of meat that cuts like butter. Drizzled with a grain mustard and topped with fresh smoked peaches. The savoriness from the pork chop mixed with a smoked sweet taste from the peaches blends together in perfect food harmony. It is a meal that has been crafted, perfected, and should be enjoyed. So, go enjoy it!
Hold the phone and stop what you are doing immediately! This is no joke. We just had one of the most delicious, perfect, never going to forget it meals in Music City! The Fried Brussels Sprouts from Rumours Wine Bar in The Gulch. The earthiness from the brussels sprouts, sweetness from the caramelization, the saltiness from the bacon, and the butteriness from the Goudo combine to send you into a food coma of happiness. So many different flavors, but perfectly complimenting each other in the best of ways. They are bet crispy on the outside from the frying, but not fried to much to become all mushy on the inside. Just superb, and a must for anyone visiting or living in Music City.
Today we have an adventure for you. First step, head on over the Nashville Farmers’ Market in Germantown. Enjoy all the freshest produce and wonderful products throughout the South Farm Sheds of the Farmers’ Market. It’s always hard for us to leave the treasure trove without a few goodies for later. Once you have finished in the South Farm Sheds head to the Market House where you can find B & C Market BBQ. One of the best places to find some home style cooking in Nashville. We LOVE their Hickory Smoked Pork Plate. Time and love went into creating the delicious monstrosity. A plate piled high with pulled pork then two sides. We always go with with baked potato salad and mac n cheese. Food to warm the soul and bring a smile to your face!
