Located in the same building as The Childrens Clinic of Nashville, this colorfully decorated FroYo shop is perfect for a treat after a shot or checkup. With its cheery décor of bright colors, stainless steel and floor-to-ceiling glass, Sweet Ceces has cornered the market on comforting booboos with priced-per-ounce frozen yogurt and toppings ranging from Fruit Loops to fresh blackberries.
Located in the quirky crook of Murphy Road, The Local Taco draws families, cocktailers and neighbors with its twinkle-lit patio and cheap and cheerful roster of margaritas, enchiladas and tacos stuffed with smoked pork shoulder, fried fish, chicken breast, brisket and fried shrimp. Try the Korean barbecue tacogrilled hunks of sweet-and-tangy marinated beef adorned with Asian slaw and sesame seeds. Scratching an itch for Mexican in Sylvan Park, The Local Taco is an instant fair-weather landmark. — Carrington Fox
