    Nashville Area Restaurants

    Hey gang,

    I've heard of Buca di Peppo, and would really like get down there sometime.

    Are there any other places that you guys would recommend? Anything unique to Nashville?

    I've eaten at Buca di Peppo before. It's good. I took the family to Amerigo's on West End this weekend. It's a very tasty downtown Italian restaurant. I go there for their Chicken Margarite.

    I like Local places.. my recommendation..

    2) Radius 10
    3) German Town Cafe
    4) Margo's

    I am sure I misspelled most of these

    Mmmm - good choices - I think Margot is the only misspelling.

    Depends on what you are looking for. The above are all excellent, but most main courses are $20 and up.

    - Sushiyobi for how unique the fusion rolls are - the volcano being my favorite (the sashimi is good but not outstanding)
    - Shintomi for dumplings and Udon noodles - again sushi is not outstanding.
    - Monell's for southern goodness.
    - Back to Cuba for cheap and very good cuban.
    - Kien Giang for uber cheap really good Pho.
    - Mediterranean Cuisine for cheap and tasty you can guess what type of food.
    - Hog heaven for cheap killer pork BBQ (not open for dinner - also, it's a total dive)
    - Judge Bean's for excellent Texas-style BBQ (I'm from TX - it's spot on)
    - Woodlands for Southern Indian food (vegetarian)
    - Sitar for Northern Indian
    - Horn of Africa for cheap and delicious Ethiopian food (it's in the hood)
    - Rosepepper for great TexMex
    - Marche for brunch (French style)
    - Fido for coffee and tasty breakfast/lunch
    - Corrierri's for excellent soups and panninis (don't leave without taking some 12 month Gouda with you)
    - 12th St. taproom for amazingly great bar food
    - Acorn for absolutely delicious everything ($20 or more per main course)

    My name is Chris and I like food.

    Their dry rub ribs are deceptively hot. They kind of sheak up on you. Good stuff though.


    And might I say, for a guy that just moved here you certainly know your local restaurants. :wink:

    Ditto on Radius 10 - it rocks!

    If you go there you've got to have the "Low Country"!

    oh yes, this is where my rehearsal dinner is for my wedding! Sooo good!

    Some of my favs in town are:

    Watermark = possibly the best food I've eaten in Nashville. Pricey but a good value.
    Siam (white bridge) = some of the best Thai in town
    J Alexander's = grilled chicken salad is amazing
    Mellow Mushroom = possibly the best pizza in town, great beer deals (Yazoo on tap), great hummus
    Jackson's (Hillsboro Village) = great cafe with outside seating and Yazoo on tap.
    Ginza (Green Hills) = Great sushi place, very affordable. Currently remodling
    Acorn = see Chris' post above
    Amerigo's = great tortellini and tiramisu
    Baja Borrito (Berry Hill) = Best borrito's in town...
    Tenno (West End) = best sushi in town, a little pricey
    Las Palmas (Church) = great Mexican food at a great price.
    South Street = great pulled pork
    McGuinness Pub = great fish and chips and Guinness
    Yellow Porch (Berry Hill) = good food, a bit pricey
    Noshville (Broadway)= great breakfast (omlettes). Great service, good coffee.... don't go to the one in Green Hills if you can help it.
    Tin Roof = better than average bar food, good quesadillas and white cheese dip.
    Kalamatas (Green Hills) = good hummus
    Sitar (West End) = good Indian, great lunch buffett
    Edit: Cafe Nonna (Silvan Park) = great small little Italian place. mmmm yummy!


    There are so many more that I can't think of right now.

    I'm with Chris on the "I like to eat" remarks! it's also part of my job basically, it's kinda unavoidable.

    Excellent - this is quite a good list we have going.

    Also, Zola on W. End quite tasty (18ish per main course if I remember right - it's been a while).

    For muy authentico Mexican - Las Chivas on Nolensville is da bomb. Authentic enough to have tacos linguas and cabrito**


    **tongue tacos and goat meat

    There's also an Amerigo's in Cool Springs, so it just depends on where you're coming from and what else you plan to do...

    I might have to disagree with you there P-Chris. I've tried SATCO a few times and found it way expensive and tasted bland....maybe they have a new chef now or something. I was bummed because it seemed like a cool place.

    Where is the Back to Cuba place? My wife would love that!

    My current favoites are Da Vinci's Pizza on Hayes street and McCreary's Irish pub in downtown Franklin.

    Both have excellent non-traditional beer selections. (The food is good too.)

    Actually - ditto to Uzzi on the Satco. There's 2 medical students in our lab and they both had an epidemiology class where SATCO was used as an example for food poisoning

    Here's back to cuba: http://www.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=b...116215&iwloc=A

    I forgot about the pub in Franklin - that place was good - went once with friends. Excellent beer and fish/chips.

    Haven't been to DaVinci's - I'm walking distance from Maffiozza's so that's where we go for pizza.

    Caveman's Steak House - oops - that's not a restaurant. But, it's got to be the best steak in town- Porter House is our speciality. We also have awesome grilled or blackened shrimp. Mrs. Donna's low fat spaghetti is also the best in the world. This house is a PETA certified restaurant (PETA = People Eating Tasty Animals )


    Our favorite places:

    Famous Dave's in Hermitage (great wings - naked and St Louis style ribs

    Macaroni Grill - Chicken Marsala, Chicken Portobello, and the salmon - best bread

    Carabas - Green Hills - love the bread spices and olive oil

    Our Place - meat and three in Mt Juliet - fried skinless chicken breast - yum yum!

    Arnold's - downtown - meat and three - best roast beef

    Overalls - best meat and three in Carthage TN - behind the square - hidden local favorite

    Istanbul - Nolensville Rd - real Turks - gyros, donnar meat, and kabobs - try the sampler trio - strong hot tea

    House of Kabob - Thompson Lane - lunch Salmon or chicken or gyro

    Bobby Q's in Cookeville, TN - best smoked chicken on earth - beans that will knock you spouse out of bed They also have the best brisket and pulled pork around

    Baja Fresh - recent find - very good (add hot sauce, pico, and cilantro to the salsa)

    Rafferties - 100 Oaks - best chicken tenders, blackened salmon, salad

    Last - but not least - Dalts on White Bridge Road - been eating there since 1981 when we moved back to Nashville. Fried fish, grilled salmon, rotiserary chicken, fajitas, etc... plus - real homemade milk shakes

    (Man - I just gained 10 pounds after making this list )

    Little Caveman - 2010 Voodoo Hoodoo 26'er - Steel is Still Real / custom build

    …but on Voyage 34, he finally met himself coming down an up-staircase, and the encounter was crushing (Porcupine Tree).

    That's all from Baja Fresh. Next time you have some time on your hands go and check out their website and nutritional info. It's an eye opener!!

    I like to call it Baja Not-so-Fresh.

    for my system, that place is instant stomach ache.

    They are like everywhere - you get what you order. Gee - I'll have the 3 pound hamburger and three orders of biggie fries and a diet coke - Why do I weigh 400 pounds?

    I got two grilled chicken tacos - not too bad - Plus some beans and rice (ate half of the rice) - plus a few chips - took them home for the next day (gone when I arrived). Around a thousand calories - and I believe I did HC that morning - not too bad.

    Any full service restaurant will stuff it to ya!!!! Especially salt and fat. Get water to drink (cheaper) and split a meal (we do it very often). We are growing as a nation and the next generation will not outlive their grandparents if they don't watch it!!

    Steve (10 pound since Christmas by not eating out at lunch.

    PS - a book my wife recently read suggested that if you HAVE too eat at a fast food place, get a kids meal. Not a bad idea.

    PSS - I'm sure Mr. Beans watches his intake
    Big Caveman - 2012 Specialized Epic Expert 29er and 2006 Santacruz Superlight - custom burple color
    Little Caveman - 2010 Voodoo Hoodoo 26'er - Steel is Still Real / custom build

    I hear ya! I just hate that people think they are such a healthy place (atleast people I've run across)... and they are so "fresh".

    The soldium is the real thing that always suprises me there. 1 grilled chicken soft taco has 590 mg of soldium....double that of 1 grill chicken hard taco. 1 grilled chicken borrito (baja borrito)has 2140mg of salt and 38 fat grams.

    I know you have to be careful everywhere, and I also realize Mexican food is pretty unhealthy no matter where you get it. I just like to pass on the word to check out what you're eating when you go to Baja Fresh, mainly b/c I don't like that place! and at some level I think people are being hoodwinked.

    A big help to me has been to always try to take home a to go box from anywhere I'm eating. We American's get portions for 3 at just about every restuarant. I used to ALWAYS have to clean my plate, I still have the urge most places, but I try not to. Cerial and yogurt for breakfast and no snaking before lunch, down 25 pounds in 8 months.

    I just ate at the Baja Fresh early this afternoon across the street from Kalamatas........when I saw the Kalamatas (after I had eaten) the name rang out in my brain.

    Baja Fresh was decent, it would make a killing up here in Clarksville too but the Franchise requirements are outta this world!

    more good hummus (it's easy to make):

    2 cloves garlic—roughly chopped
    ¼ cup lemon juice
    ¼ cup water
    14 oz (400g) canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans)—rinsed and drained
    ½ cup tahini
    1 teaspoon salt

    blend

    put a little paprika on top for color and a little flavor
    put a little cayenne in for spicy
    ...and you can add cumin if you like cumin

    Overpriced... not worth it. (to me atleast)

    I would go to The Acorn, or if you are really wanting a 'steak house', go to Morton's downtown.

    (we just had our rehearsal dinner tonight at The Acorn, and it was fabulous! I had the NY Strip and it was lovely!)

    Well first it depends what part of town he was talking about.

    There is "Pizza Perfect" on 21st Ave which is pretty good. There is a place down Granny White called Pizza Perfect or Perfect Pizza that isn't all that great.

    Pizza Perfect on 21st is good, but I don't think it's my favorite. I know it sounds odd, but I'm a Mellow Mushroom fan and think their crust is better than Pizza Perfect. Pizza Perfect does have a good Sicilian style pizza. It's a fun local establishment to go to with a good staff.

    I would go to The Acorn, or if you are really wanting a 'steak house', go to Morton's downtown.

    (we just had our rehearsal dinner tonight at The Acorn, and it was fabulous! I had the NY Strip and it was lovely!)

    Sitar is awesome, rock'n lunch buffet.

    Has anyone eaten at the Chop House in Lebanon at the old Military School? I am ready for a good steak.

    Greg is right bout Ruth's I have eaten at a few of their locations and I would rather feed my friends from my grill for those $$. (i used to raise beef cattle and steak was 3 times a week.....beef, it's what's for dinner)

    We need a "thumbs down" icon.

    I don't recommend Ken's. Bland and boring.

    Good sushi:

    Virago (down past Ken's farther)
    Tenño (West End/Murphy)
    Shintomi (Green Hills)
    Ginza (Green Hills, but currently being renovated)
    Ru Sáns (The Gulge. Not best quality, but good variety and price)

    Not to bash Kens or anything because at one time I would eat there 2 or 3 times a week. However, the pieces of fish on the sushi started to get smaller and smaller over time. I liked the taste, but clean good fish protein and omega3 is my goal, and Kens just started to not cut it for me.

    Surprisingly, there is a Sushi place in Hermitage right off 40 on Old Hickory. Last three times I went there the fish portions were HUGE! I hope it stays that way!

    I noticed the Sushi buffet (lunch) at Rusans went in the same direction. The fish pieces are paper thin and the rice clumps are huge. Guess this is a way of cutting costs.

    just my 2 cents!

    I don't "do" sushi, but I've heard that Sake in Lebanon has great fish bait, er uh, sushi. Their stir fry is really good and reasonable and quick. They will also cook it very spicy!!! if you dare.

    Sake is located on West Main across from the Baskin Robins and near Castle Heights.

    If you are around the Hamilton Creek area...Picnic Pizza rocks. Texana Grill has great happy hour specials and some good nachos.

    And then downtown a place called Rose Pepper Cantina has delicious margaritas and good fancy mexican food.

    oh my gosh, there is so much food on this list, so many places I havent heard of...I'm gonna have to ride my bike everywhere so I can lose weight as i go from restaurant to restaurant.
