Nashville - Got a favorite spot to share?

We're heading to Nashville for a weekend of fabulous music, food and drinks. We've got the music part figured out, but want to find a few great spots for meals and snacks. At this point, I think we're looking for everything from a nice home-cookin' kind of breakfast, to local favorites for lunches, and even a sweet, romantic spot for dinner. We've got several days worth of eating to keep us occupied so, what would you suggest?

  1. you might want to post this on another board. next trip, come to NOLA!

    1. Here's a reco out of left field. SOBro at the Country Music Hall of Fame has great lunch in a nice setting and it features a great roving guitarist who will play anything you want to hear. I really like their BLT with fried green tomatoes and and bacon from the Loveless Cafe. There's also an arcade on 5th St about 3 blocks north of Broadway that has a variety of lunch places and it's in the middle of N'villes burgeoning gallery district. For dinner I'll throw out F. Scotts in Green Hills. A nice room with some very tasty food. It's a bit pricey but food is half price after 9 so it's perfect spot after the early show at the Opry or the Blue Bird cafe. You'll hear the best jazz artists in Nashville at F Scotts between 7 and 10 too. Search the board and you'll find plenty of recos for Zola's, Radius 10, and the other regulars. If you tell us your likes, dislikes and secret desires we can probably offer more and better advice.

      1. For a home-cookin' kind of breakfast, I reccommend Monell's in Nashville's Germantown neighborhood. It's really close to downtown, and it's good eatin'. The only thing is, breakfast is only served on Saturday and Sunday. If you're looking for a home-cookin' kind of breakfast on a weekday, you might consider driving out to the Loveless Cafe in Bellevue. Another great breakfast place is The Pancake Pantry in Hillsboro Village.
