Once upon a time, there was a girl that quit her job and randomly, she had the courage to move over 400+ miles south, to Nashville, Tennessee. Who is this girl and why did she have courage? Well, that girl is me, ‘Wallzy’, and I had the courage because of my cousin, Kait. Not only did she tell me that I could stay with her, she also helped me find a job, went house shopping with me and introduced me to the best group of friends, I have ever known! Well, I lived in Nashville for four years, and in that time and even as of now, I get asked about the best places to stay, funnest bars and activities, and most importantly, best food options. So today, I complied a list and then asked Tara, Whitney, and Kait their favorites, too, so we could cover them for you! Check out our list below; you’ll be happy that you did!
Liberty Commons - A totally chic vibe along with an amazing brunch/dinner menu and they’re located right downtown.
Bourbon Steak - Tara noted that this place gives you a flight of french fries and dipping sauces instead of bread.
North Italia - A yummy Italian place with handmade pasta, connected to Green Hills Mall.
Bongo Coffee - This location is in East Nashville, but there are a few places in the city that has this coffee. It’s so smooth and their beans are also available for purchase.
Mas Tacos - Also located on the East side, Mas Tacos is a cash only establishment that people will wait 30 mins in line for. The best tacos, chicken tortilla soup, and elote, you’ll eat.
Restoration Hardware Cafe - Their food is yum, their coffee is even better, and the vibes are unsurpassed.
Barcelona - These guys are known for their tapas. The best place to come and spend hours eating lots of yummy small plates and sharing.
Kayne Prime - Owned by M Street, this steakhouse doesn’t disappoint. It’s pricey and usually have reservations, but they have the best steaks and even yummier, fun sides. Very cool for a date night.
Cava - This is Kait’s go to! Picture a Chipotle but with Mediterranean food. Yum, they have different levels of spice and the bowls are fantastic, definitely more of a casual vibe.
Two Ten Jack - Ah may zing ramen! This place is my all time favorite. They have the best ramen bowls, yummy sushi, and their small/shareable plates are great.
