Nashville eats within walking distance of Vanderbilt U.

  • 4

Will be in Nashville for a week in late April. Staying at Loew's vanderbillt right across from the U. My favorite way to see a new city is to walk around, and follow my nose. I'm prepared to walk anywhere in a five mile radius of my hotel to eat, drink and see interesting things. On the food front any recs within that five mile radius would be most welcome. My preferences run the gamut.

        As you might expect for the area surrounding a major university, good restaurant density is pretty high. And we haven't even mentioned any of the national chains in the area, or the places that are bad or ordinary rather than good or pretty good, or heaven help, any that we might have forgotten. In fact, this West End / Vanderbilt / Midtown area probably has the highest density of restaurants in the city. So ... happy exploring.

        1. There are so many to chose between. What are you looking for? Sit down white table cloth or a bucket of beer outside on the deck. The choices run the gamut. They tend to be casual around the university, but there are ones which Nashvillians drive in from the outer burbs to come to.

          I enjoy ..

          Boundry small plates, interesting international
          San Antonio Taco (SATCO) tacos and buckets of beer
          Tin Angel
          Sunet Grill music industry favorite plus excellent late night
          Rotiers many years favorite (50=?) for burgers
          Calypso Cafe island food
          Bread and company breakfast and lunch specialties. love the soups and sandwiches

          and the rightfully famous Pancake Pantry
