Hungry? In Nashville? Music City is more than just hot chicken. Add these four Nashville restaurants to your itinerary.
If you think dining at a Margaritaville property is going to consist of beach food only, think again. JWB Grill gives the Margaritaville brand an upscale, luxury twist with a selection of perfectly plated bites you could expect to see in any fine-dining establishment, and it’s all accompanied by expertly crafted cocktails.
Southern meets Pennsylvania Dutch at Josephine, an outstanding eatery lead by Chef Andy Little, who’s received two James Beard semifinalist nominations since the restaurant opened in 2013. Some of the menu items really hearken back to Little’s roots, like the Nashville Hot Scrapple, while others are more mainstream (though you can never go wrong with a grilled hanger steak and fries, no matter how mainstream it might be). Save room for dessert. The apple cobbler for two, chocolate peanut butter cake and warm cookie plates are all tempting.
The comfortable yet upscale Hathorne offers farm-to-table dining in a family-style atmosphere. Can’t-miss menu items include the shaved Brussels sprouts with apple, Feta, currants and a black walnut vinaigrette; grilled squash with melted fennel, fried almonds and black lemon soubise; grilled pork tenderloin with caramel, black walnut cream, green tomato, okra and peppers; and the simple, yet perfect, frites.
For a light, more casual dining experience, try Cafe Roze in East Nashville. The fresh and simple menu includes breakfast classics like avocado hummus toast, egg sandwiches and simple breakfasts of eggs with tomato and bacon. Salad bowls round things off, along with some daytime cocktails that are enough to leave you a little cheery, but not so much you won’t enjoy the rest of your afternoon — think an orange blossom gin fizz with lemon and egg white, or the Mandy, a mix of light beer and grapefruit ice cubes.
Blood circulation is an ever-present concern, especially for people who sit for long periods of time for work or travel. If you’re preparing for a long trip, make sure to pick up some compression socks to keep blood flowing.
Finding a hotel during the Olympic Games can be harder than launching a shotput across a bed of sand. Some host cities find themselves investing millions of dollars to construct new hotels just for the Games, which is a strain on resources and the environment, and can send the city into debt. In an effort to avoid these problems, Airbnb and the International Olympics Committee teamed up to offer accommodation to attendees during the next handful of Olympic Games around the world.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
