How To Eat and Drink Your Way Through Nashville

 

At least once a week, I get people asking me for restaurant and bar recommendations in Nashville. Whether you're a local looking for a new spot or a friend coming in town, look no further. Here's how you can eat and drink your way through Nashville! These are some of my personal favorite spots. It is obviously not a comprehensive list, and does not include some places that may be great staples, but it includes places that I actually have been to and love so I know I can give the go-ahead with good conscience. 

So go, eat and drink and be merry!
