Contemporary Asian | Nashville, Nashville

It is a great fusion of Asian food, some of the name of the dishes does not reflect the food you are eating but still delicious. Their cocktail drinks are good too. More

Seafood | The Gulch, Nashville

I came with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. The room is beautiful and every table has a nice view. The service was attentive, knowledgeable but not overly present; our server was always there when we needed her, but she didn't hover. The meals were all excellent, although we were there fairly late, in terms of the brunch service, so a few dessert options were sold out. The potatoes are remarkable and not like anything else I've had in Nashville. I recommend them to everyone! More

Steakhouse | Nashville, Nashville

One of Nashville's best steak houses which also offers some outstanding sushi and fresh fish options. Sides are plentiful and the wine list is very good. Service was excellent and the kitchen was extremely responsive. Price was on the high side but the food quality supports it. More

Discover Nashville

Country music can be polarizing. You either love it, or you don’t. Nashville’s food scene, on the other hand, is tough not to like. There’s something for almost every taste and we hear the hot wings just keep getting better. Be it cold brew coffee houses, the ever-popular barbecue, or inventive Southern dishes—you name it, Nashville’s got it. And yes, be prepared to be serenaded by buskers on street corners. It’s called the Music City for a reason.
