In this week's dining review in the Nashville Scene, restaurant writer Nicki Pendleton Wood checks out First Watch, and interesting joint in Brentwood that concentrates exclusively on breakfast and lunch, operating 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

First Watch is a chain — "there are nearly 100 locations in a sort of belt across the central U.S. plus Florida, Wisconsin and Arizona," Wood writes — and the Brentwood store is the only one in Tennessee.

Wood praises the fresh ingredients First Watch includes in what could have been pretty beige palette of breakfast foods. And instead of sticking to an old-school egg-and-sausage cholesterol fest, the menu accommodates Americans' dietary obsessions for the 21st century: "Whether your regimen requires high-energy, high-protein, low-fat, low-glycemic, vegetarian or gluten-free meals, First Watch provides something interesting," she writes.

How about you, Bites Nation: Anybody tried the multigrain pancakes or the skillet hash? Feel free to chime in the comments.
