weekend in Nashville - dinner rec?

s

My family and I are visiting Nashville this weekend. We have most of our meals planned out but need one more dinner rec. We're not too familiar with the area geographically, so if you know of anyplace that's still shut down due to water issues, I'd appreciate that info too.

The choices are:
Tin Angel
Margot Cafe
F. Scott's
Park Cafe

We're also going to try the Loveless Cafe for one breakfast meal and Copper Kettle for Sunday brunch. Any reason we shouldn't consider either?

Thanks for the help!

    I didn't want to start a new thread on virtually the same topic, but I'm passing through Nashville tomorrow night and am looking for a good place to eat. I'll be alone, though. Do any of the places mentioned on this topic have a bar or a counter where a solo diner won't feel awkward?

      Will you be spending the night or passing through. You don't want to get way off the Hwy. to eat if you are passing through. There's some nice places along the highway. Which way are you headed and which Hwy.

      If you are passing through I would pick Tin Angel if you are heading East/West as TA is just off I40/440 at Exit 1/1A. If you are heading N/S you will probably be still passing by TA. If you are spending the night where are you staying. It would be nice to pick a place close to your room.

      Tin Angel has a nice bar area with tables to dine in the bar or actually at the bar it's partially separated from the main dining room by a partition but it's not fully separated. Nice set up. You would enjoy dining there.

      Tin Angel @ 3201 West End Ave., Nashville, TN 615 - 298 - 3444. * FD/LD. I40/EXIT1/1A.

      I actually love Copper Kettle's brunch. It is a buffet, but it is a very extensive and lavish buffet. I think you'll love it.

      My advice for Loveless...stick to the biscuits and the country ham (and maybe the hasbrown casserole) and you won't be disappointed. Anything else on the menu is asking for trouble.

      As far as your dinner choices, they are all good ones. If I had to choose just one, it would be Margot.

        Thanks for all the suggestions! Very helpful. I'll look into City House for dinner and will stick to the biscuits at Loveless (the main reason we were going anyway). I didn't know Margot did brunch. We're looking for a southern "buffet" style brunch (go big or go home, right?), and that's why we chose Copper Kettle.

        I don't leave until tomorrow, so if anyone else has a comment/suggestion, I'll see them.

        I second the rec for City House. Also, you’ll be waiting in long lines for Copper Kettle. Holland House is a fairly new spot on the east side that just recently started doing Sunday brunch as well. They’ve got some serious talent/experience in the kitchen.

          I'll suggest Margot's for dinner. Smaller local restaurant with a great menu that changes quite often. Marche's is a sister restaurant and is great for brunch.

            All good choices. F Scotts is set apart from the rest by having very good jazz ever;y night in the bar ( and pleasantly audible throughout the restaurant) and 1/2 price food after nine.

              Skip Copper Kettle and have brunch at Margot. I think it and Meil have the best brunch in Nashville but Margot wins out. For dinner I would also suggest City House. Tandy Wilson (owner/Chef) does some of the best Food in Nashville.
