Bon Appétit and Dan Auerbach on Nashville's Best Restaurants
Posted by Charlie Harris

A February feature in Bon Appétit declares Nashville the "The Coolest, Tastiest City in the South." And we have to hand it to restaurant and drinks editor Andrew Knowlton: he highlights some of Music City's most essential spots (while avoiding the tourist traps and overly exposed). Well-deserved shout outs are given to delicious gourmet Mexican popsicles at Las Paletas, Martin's whole hog barbecue, Broadway's most danceworthy Honky Tonk, Robert's Western World (they serve a mighty fine 2 am patty melt), and many more. Bon Appétit  even provides recipes for mac & cheese at Arnold's Country Kitchen, a cocktail at the Patterson House, and the phenomenal, tangy tortilla soup at Mas Tacos Por Favor

In perhaps the most interesting segment of the feature, Knowlton  interviews Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, a recent Nashville transplant who claims to have been drawn to the city in part by the restaurant scene. After exploring the similarities between musicians and chefs - "molecular gastronomy is like Radiohead" - Auerbach proves to have pretty impressive taste for a Nashville newbie, suggesting the likes of Miss Saigon for pho,  Gabby's Burgers & Fries, Tandy Wilson's pizza at City House, and of course the fish tacos and tortilla soup at Mas Tacos (did we mention how brilliant the soup is yet?).
