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!

Party Fowl  - my personal fav is the Deconstructed Cobb Salad with Hot Chicken!
The Southern - delicious and right in the heart of downtown, super easy to walk to other things
Chauhan Ale & Masala House - southern-infused indian food with a badass lady chef
Butcher and Bee - tapas, go and share all the plates! Whipped feta is the best!
Adele’s  - kale salad and jw potatoes are a must!
Burger Up
Mas Tacos - cash only so make sure you stop by an ATM!
Taco Mamacita
Five Points Pizza - best pizza in Nashville, and they have a walk-up window that's open late! 
Tennessee Brew Works

Marsh House
St. Anejo - breakfast burrito is

Santa’s Pub - cash only, so make sure you stop by an ATM! And it's karaoke, so better warm up in the Uber on the way.
