No, it's not the end of the world—it's the end of many diners' agonizing wait till the opening of the East Nashville location of Calypso Cafe. (Technically, it's called Couva Calypso Cafe, but by whom we're not sure.) The new location, at 1101 Gartland Ave. (at the corner of Gallatin Road), opened today. Now the East Side hipsters (I am so not one, so don't even try...OK, maybe sorta kinda) don't have to cross that damnable river to dig into their black bean salads and rotisserie chicken.

Best of all, it helps to relieve East Nashville's surprising dearth of cheap eats. With just a few exceptions, there are very few places (outside of fast food) where you can get dinner for under 10 bucks.
