As many Music City dining aficionados may have noticed, The New York Times ran a lengthy feature on Nashville restaurants. There were some interesting geographical interpretations of our fine city (and the word "hipster" appeared half a dozen times, prompting some tattooed and bearded East Nashvillians to hop off their fixed-gear bikes and tweet their grievances) but the article deftly highlighted some fantastic Nashville restaurants well-deserving of recognition, and it's great to see the Nashville dining scene getting some attention on the national level.
Restaurants featured in the article include Bolton's Spicy Chicken and Fish, Las Paletas, Mas Tacos, City House, Margot Cafe and red-hot newcomers The Catbird Seat and The Pharmacy. The piece largely centers on East Nashville, which has seen no shortage of foodie love in recent days. Tyler Florence and The Great Food Truck Race spent some time on the east side a couple weeks back, and Adam Richman noshed upon the Asian flank steak sandwich at Mitchell Deli just last week for his new show, Best Sandwich in America.
With all this focus on Nashville restaurants, we'd be remiss not to mention our recently updated list of Nashville's Top 100 restaurants. 6 of the 7 restaurants mentioned in The Times article are currently Top 100's, and other new additions to the list include Giovanni, Gojo Ethiopian, Kayne Prime, The Smiling Elephant, Suzy Wong's, Table 3, Tavern, and PS Noodle Pot. Follow the link for complete details of our Nashville update.
