I'm a Kansan--through and through--but Nashville, Tennessee was once home for me, so I love getting back as often as I can to see new places and eat. 

This trip was especially wonderful because it introduced one of THE BEST restaurants, Etch. It was masterful--truly one of my favorite dining experiences of my life to date!

Some other Nashville greats from our visit....

TREEHOUSE - humble, curious, delicious

ROSE PEPPER - even better than I remember

HUTTON HOTEL - always glamorous and chic

GREEN DOOR GOURMET - filled with L.O.V.E.

MASONS - Surprise, surprise, surprise.  Go Chef Brandon!

SUNSET GRILL - Nashville Standard. Habenero Butterscotch Bread Pudding = YUM, 

WATERMARK - Eat in the bar area, and you must visit the rooftop garden
