Re: “Norman Couser's Country Cookin'

Ate there twice during recent visit to Nashville--lunch and supper. Same menu for both; same friendly staff and from-scratch cooking. Pleasing alternative to Cracker Barrel.

Re: “Rippy's Smokin' Bar & Grill

I found several choices for a pulled pork sandwich walking the streets of Nashville. Same for live entertainment. I selected Rippy's because of the music coming from 3 guys playing acoustic guitar that was drifting from the inviting open front. There was a female signing on the rooftop too, but I never made it upstairs. Food A+, service was quick, friendly, music was good, and everyone was accommodating. Perfect choice for that beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Re: “Giovanni Ristorante

Absolutely love this restaurant- it is pricey- but it's delicious and worth it. Also, it's cool to go to see who you will run into there- a lot of celebrities that live in Nashville eat there frequently. If you are tight on cash- I wouldn't go there - but if you want to have a nice meal- definitely check it out

Re: “Edley's Bar-B-Que

I've been dying to try out Edley's since we moved back to Nashville a few months ago. I had some errands to run in town this morning, so I took the opportunity to add barbecue to my to-do list.

Edley's is in the up-and-coming 12 South neighborhood of Nashville, which I think was mostly just residential when we lived here eight years ago. The atmosphere is a good combination of modern and rustic. It's a lively place with a full bar, so I might be back for happy hour sometime soon. The line to order had nearly doubled within a few minutes of my 11:30 arrival. Clearly this joint is a local favorite.

I don't normally do barbecue sandwiches, but Edley's Tuck Special sounded too good to resist: a brisket sandwich with house made spicy pimento cheese, an over-easy egg, red and white barbecue sauces, and pickles. It doesn't get much more Southern than that. Well, I suppose they could have added a fried something-or-other, but I digress. I decided to make my Tuck a combo with potato salad and mac-n-cheese on the side.

The mayonnaise-based potato salad was very tasty. Skin-on potatoes were a good choice. There was much more potato than veggie in the mix, which worked well here. The macaroni was far from basic Easy Mac. I really enjoyed the crumbly topping and spices. It was gooey and creamy from the various cheeses they use, and was much better than the mac and cheese I usually find in my barbecue travels.

It was hard to decide exactly how to tackle the towering Tuck Special, so I assembled a pile of napkins and dove right in. Wow, this sandwich was deliciously complex! I managed to find a few bits of plain brisket, which had a great smoky flavor as well as a slight spiciness. The meat was very tender, due in part to the fattier slices I received. Edley's pimento cheese comes out almost like a patty and definitely has some heat to it as well. The addition of the mayo-based white barbecue sauce was really interesting, while the pickles added acidity, sweetness, and a much-needed crunch. I wasn't sure how the egg would play out, but it actually tied everything together beautifully. This sandwich was incredible all the way around!

I'll always be a sucker for the classics, but Edley's proves that barbecue doesn't necessarily have to be simple to be amazing. I will definitely be back to sample their more traditional barbecue items.

Re: “Bombay Palace

Hands down best Indian food around! Not to mention that from the waiters to the environment and authenticity. I don't believe I've ever said delicious so many times in one sitting. The flavor and smell of everything is why I'm coming back.

Re: “{Pub}licity

Having traveled extensively and loving nothing better than a good meal, I would have to say the fish and chips are the BEST I’ve had in the states. Beer battered and cooked to perfection the cod was the star, served with a delicious made in house tarter sauce, garlic fries and ketchup with a bite, also made in house. A meal to be complimented and most definitely worthy of a return trip!
Hats off to Billy and staff!

Re: “Sam's Sushi

#RIP Sams Sushi - as of Saturday he has closed the doors for good, selling all the restaurant equipment for a couple looking to open their own sushi restaurant. Customers received a parting gift with their more ample than normal orders - a solitary caramel chocolate candy. This place will go down as a place of Nashville legend. If you don't like it, get out.

Re: “B&C Melrose BBQ

I'm a huge bbq lover and B&C is without a doubt the best in the area. The location makes picking up very fast and easy, it also has a good sized dining area to eat in. The Brisket is out of this world!! Definitely a must try BBQ joint
