Hungry? In Nashville? Music City is more than just hot chicken. Add these four Nashville restaurants to your itinerary.


JWB Grill

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.


Cafe Roze

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.

World Snooker Championship

Snooker is a cue sport similar to pool first developed in the latter half of the 19th century by British Army soldiers. Players use a cue and white ball to pocket a set of red and green balls into separate corners in a specific order. Its popularity has grown immensely, leading to an annual World Snooker Championship each year.

Pack Your Bags, You’re Going to Tokyo!

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with.
