The energy in this grill is always electric. Their chef’s inspiration comes from bold flavors and market-fresh ingredients. Expect local ingredients alongside new classics, whether it’s a simple sandwich or a more deluxe egg roll you crave.

Refined yet relaxed, it’s the comfort food classics that bring the diners here. Come for one of the best breakfasts in Nashville that feels truly relaxed. Exposed wood beams and stone walls give it an industrial but warm feel. A popular choice is the Korean Fried Chicken, known as a Hemingway's Bar & Hideaway classic.

In the Marriott at Vanderbilt University, regulars know of this inviting space. Choose to sit quietly and people watch or come with a crowd. Park25 Bistro is an American bar and restaurant, but with that undeniable Southern flavor. Sports games can be enjoyed from the flat-screen TVs. For breakfast, there’s nothing better than the All-American-buffet, served in style here.

Breakfast. Lunch, Dinner. Cocktails. 417 Union says it all. At this highly-rated breakfast joint, food is a celebration. Classic American fare with traditional Southern staples. The organic house blend coffee is well known and loved, and generous breakfast portions can be expected. Though the interiors are simple, this is perhaps true Nashville tradition, where the quality and distinctive taste of the food is the real star.

Located in Downtown Nashville’s SoBro district, this restaurant is open all hours of the day. Its six stories all have great views of downtown, so its the perfect place to begin a day. Come here for Southern home-style dishes, including most of the Italian classics, seafood, and a proper Nashville Cheesesteak. Oysters and Sushi may not be the first thing one thinks of at an American Diner, but this place is for the global American experience. Large rooms with terraces are available to book for private parties.

Nashville may not be known for its Chinese cuisine, but here’s a local secret. Modern Chinese food is served at Tansuo, plus traditional street fare. It’s all appealing to the Nashiville crowd. This is Tansuo, popular for its Dim Sum Cart Service Sunday Brunch. Did we mention Bottomless Cocktails are served with that? Go for the authentic lamb dumplings if you want to walk away truly satisfied with Asian cuisine in Nashville. Besides, this is the spot to find Peking Duck plus pancakes! Later diners will want to try out the inventive cocktails, all of which have that refreshing tropical twist.

Currently one of the hottest restaurants in Nashville, this is the place to take someone on their first experience in Music City. On the Mockingbird’s menu, American classics are featured, but with an international that global element that is true American culture. It’s modern, whimsical and cozy. Even their plated courses look fun—and that’s the whole point. Whether one pops in for an early breakfast, or late at night to satisfy a craving, the chef duo here has everything covered. They are the same folks behind Chauhan Ale & Masala House and Tànsuǒ in The Gulch area. Sparkling wines are served with brunch.

Lovers of fine dining will be satisfied at 360 Bistro, located in West Nashville. For over a decade, it has seen a loyal crowd, from locals to visitors. They serve award-winning wines, with all the hospitality one might expect in the city. Their reserve list alone comprises 1000 selections, and the seasonal menu changes according to available produce. There are noticeable Italian selections, along with more innovative dishes. This old-school favorite has withstood the test of time, and still manages to satisfy.
