Nashville food
I'm going to Nashville with my wife on a little trip. What places should we try, and more importantly, what breweries should we visit? Any beers I should stock up on? Thanks in advance

If y'all are looking for brunch spot check out Pinewood Social.

Patterson House is cool for late night drinks and a bite.

Also I really enjoyed the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Went there for lunch and ended up staying for 4 hours drinking. Good food.


I would avoid the hot chicken anywhere

re: Nashville food
Agreed. We had Hattie B's and its nothing special, although I did take enjoyment watching the guy at the table next to me sweat while trying to put down several hot pieces of chicken in front of his girlfriend.

what breweries should we visit


I'd first suggest hitting some bars/growler filling stores and trying the Nashville breweries and see which you like. Check out the 12 South or East Nashville Fillin' Station or Craft Brewed in Berry Hill.

For ease, you can go down 8th Ave/The Gulch area and hit these 4 breweries. They are all a football field away from each other:

Jackalope
Tennessee Brew Works
Yazoo
Czanns
Also, City Winery is right by. LINK

For others,
Black Abbey - Berry Hill neighborhood
Fat Bottom - East Nashville
Little Harpeth - East Nashville
Smith and Lentz - East Nashville (check first to see if they are open...I know it's sometime soon).
Bearded Iris - Germantown
Blackstone - West End
Honky Tonk - North Nashville

If you are wanting to take beer back, a lot of the Nashville breweries don't can or bottle yet. I'd get the Black Abbey barrel aged bombers, Blackberry Farm's saison bottles, Blackstone's Hop Jack or Adam Bomb IPA, Yazoo's Sue.

If you can expound a little more on what you want to eat/price, I'll be glad to happy you out.

re: Nashville food
been on pueblo real kick lately (in franklin)

place has incredible margaritas and no matter how many times i watch salvador crush the limes into the glasses with his bare hands and mixing in tequila and triple sec, i cant get it right when trying it at home.

plus, next door is Paletas tocumbo which beats the shite out the paletas on 12th south and then curb stomps the dead body.

re: Nashville food
Breweries:

Yazoo, Jackalope, Czann's, and TN Brew Works are all within walking distance of one another. Yazoo usually has at least one funky beer on tap. TN Brew works has a really nice taproom setup and decent beer to go along with it. Jackalope is so so - Not bad, but not great. I haven' ever been to Czann's taproom, and I haven't been real impressed with their beers I've had out and about. Hops and Crafts is right down there too, if you're looking for a craft beer place to drink.

Craft brewed is a mile or two down 8th from the Gulch and is a good spot to grab some drinks on the patio, but since it's a retail establishment, you won't be able to consume on premise anything over 6.5%. Good bottle shop, but outside of the local stuff and a few midwest breweries, there isn't much that you can't get in LA.

12 South Taproom is a little west of Craft Brewed and a good place to grab some food and beer.

Black Abbey Brewery isn't too much further away from Craft Brewed. It's small taproom, but they make halfway decent beer.

Fat Bottom brewery in East Nashville is meh beer, but they have a nice setup to hang out at.

I think Little Harpeth just opened a taproom in the past couple weeks, but I haven't made it by. They brew lagers only.

If you somehow find yourself in Franklin, there is Cool Springs Brew pub and a Turtle Anarchy taproom. CSB is pretty underrated. I grab lunch there a good bit and they always have good beer flowing. I haven't been to Turtle Anarchy's new taproom since they moved. Red Dog Liquor in Franklin typically has the best bottle selection, though it seems it comes in waves there.

As for food, hot chicken is hot chicken. I grew up here and it wasn't a big thing until recently. It can range anywhere from very mild to nuclear depending on where you go and what day it is. It's not worth waiting in line for, imo.

If you want BBQ, I prefer Martin's on Belmont. Edly's is overrated, though not bad. Pegleg is hit or miss, though when they hit they hit.

For steak, go to Jimmy Kelly's. I will say it's not the best steak in town. It is the best steakhouse in town, if that makes sense.

Higher end food-wise, we frequently eat at Miel. Husk is good, but get a reservation now unless you feel like eating at 4:30. Can't ever go wrong with Eastland Cafe or Rolf & Daughters.

Skip Loveless and Pancake Pantry. Loveless is a shell of it's former self, and pancake pantry is just a long line for pancakes. If you're going to wait in line for breakfast, at least go to Biscuit Love where the line moves fast and the food is good.
