On a hot, hot day, there's hardly anything more soothing than a cool, dark restaurant serving beautiful summer food.

Nashville's restaurants have absolutely outdone themselves this summer — I can't even count the many exceptional plates slipped before me, loaded with intelligently prepared local summer produce.

Macke's in Green Hills certainly outdid itself with this green tomato and broiled goat cheese starter (photo right).

And look at this wondrous entree of duck breast (photo left) in a sorghum glaze over a collard green souffle under a nest of fried (or possibly broiled) sweet potato strings.

Just add good company and a glass of wine and it's pure contentment.

Here's another happy — Macke's notes on its website that if you text the word "indulge" to 21534, you're automatically entered to win a $100 gift card. How happy would that make someone? Very, very.

Bring your summer happies here and share — Weekly Open Thread is the gathering place.
