Best 6 places to eat in Nashville

I'd like to have a list of what you consider the best six places in NASHVILLE to eat in if you only had 2 days more to live and wanted to finish it off with 6 great meals. The only stipulation is to include one high end restaurant. Remember money or location is not a factor. Have fun developing your list. I am really interested since I 've never been to Nashville and will be going there in September. So help me develop a list Once again Have fun

  1. City House
    Prince's or Bolton's
    Capitol Grille
    Marche Artisan Foods

    City House
    1222 4th Avenue North, Nashville, TN 37208

    1. Asking for "the best" is different from "where would you go for your last 6 meals?" There are places I'd put on the list for very personal or nostalgic reasons in the latter case, which would not be of interest to a visitor. And one of my six would be a private dinner prepared by a friend who is a chef. So, with YOU in mind ...

      City House
      Capitol Grille
      Cha Chah
      Eastland Cafe or Germantown Cafe (tie)

      2. I hope you made it to Pancake Pantry Coach.

        We ate there over the weekend and all 4 of us thought it was excellent. Well worth the wait. The line up seemed long but moved pretty well.

        While everything was terrific the Cinnamon Cream Syrup was a special kind of excellent IMHO. I've never had anything like it and now I need to figure out how to make it at home.
