Re: “Riviera Provincial Grill

My new favorite restaurant in Nashville. We had dinner at Riviera Grill tonight. It was truly wonderful; not just very good, but excellent. I've lived in Washington, DC and San Francisco, and I enjoy excellent French cuisine. We had steamed mussels in a white wine, cream and parsely sauce that was delicious. I had monkfish (my favorite and very hard to find) with bacon, roasted potatoes and balsamic reduction. My boyfriend had salmon, pappardelle pasta and a dill cream sauce. The chocolate mouse was perfect - light and airy like few know how to make. I haven't had chocolate mouse that enjoyable in years. I highly recommend it for lunch or dinner. Best of all it is reasonably priced - appetizers are $8 or less and entrees are $12-$20.


FYI - There is plenty of parking in back; so don't let the limited street parking deter you.

Re: “Table 3

One of my favorites in Nashville. Everything I've had here has been incredible. The service has also been excellent each time I have gone.

Re: “Miel

I go to Miel on a regular basis. I have had only good experiences there. The patrons around me always look like they are having a good experience also. The menu changes from time to time for variety and seasonality. In my memory, there is alway at least one fish item and one vegetarian item for dinner. There is a bistro menu during the week only that has smaller portions and prices that allow more frequent dining out so that it need not be a special occasion to visit Miel. The restaurant makes a strong effort to buy directly from a limited number of trusted suppliers (farmers and ranchers). They source locally when possible. If something is out of season, you are not likely to see it on the menu. It would be a real challenge to find another restaurant in Nashville with food that is fresher or tastier.

Re: “Miel

Absolutely Delicious. If you haven't eaten here yet, then you are missing out. True, it can be a little pricey by Nashville standards, but you have to pay for quality. I have dined here two times, and can say that I have not yet had a miss! In fact, everything was wonderful. Both times the meal started with an amuse bouche from the kitchen and wonderfully warm rolls. We have had starters including a cheese platter with five artisan cheese, oysters (very fresh!), heirloom tomato salad with ricotta salata, pork belly, and a house salad with lots of fresh veggies and a delicious salad dressing. Entress have included a flat iron steak cooked perfectly with a yummy sauce, their house risotto, and a fish special with braised short ribs (an interesting combo that totally works, trust me you have to try it) My mom loved the roast chicken, and you know you can always judge a restaurant by their roast chicken! Dessert was also delicious. I have no complaints about this restaurant. I have eaten at many of the well respected restaurants in Nashville (Watermark, Flyte, F. Scotts, Red Pony, and Miro) and I have to say without a doubt this was the best!
