THE best Middle Eastern/Kurdish restaurant in Nashville. My favorite dish is lamb shank (braised in a tomato sauce) with yellow rice (basmati rice with barberries). Get a bowl of the braising liquid on the side and some yogurt and you will have one of the best meals of your life.
Other good dishes are the joojeh (whole skewered cornish hen), kubideh (ground beef kabob), and teka (beef sirloin kabob). Also, the traditional dish is the shabzi (spinach stew with dried lime).
After you finish, have a glass of hot tea and relax - you'll be full.
Friday is fried catfish day at Arnold's!
I'm a Fido and Marche guy if I'm going out to breakfast. But I think some of the best places are at local Farmers' Markets. I usually go to the West Nashville Market to pick up my CSA, and I always pick up a beautiful tamale or empanada from Karla's catering (they are delicious and a steal at $3). And if you find Biscuit Love Truck at the Franklin Farmer's Market, order the princess and then go enjoy a nice nap for the next 2 hours.
Congrats to Chef Frohne and Johnathan! That "ducketta" sounds amazing.
Really going to miss Cha Chah - was one of my favorite places in town. I've had many memorable meals there. I'm also craving that amazing brussel sprout app for breakfast now.
Wishing Arnold and team the best. Can't wait for what comes next.
I've been to Flyte several times in the last few months and the food has never been better. In fact, it's quickly risen up as one of my favorite dining spots in town.
They have an all star team in that kitchen with Matt Lackey, Matt Bolus, and Tony Galzin. Anyone who hasn't been there, or hasn't visited in a while, should make a return trip ASAP.
I was at Husk early in September and had an incredible and memorable meal. My appetizer - crispy pig ear lettuce cups were quite possibly one of the best things I've had all year. Can't wait for it to open up here!
I've used some of this fish sauce as well and it's amazing what a few drops will do. I added some to a butternut squash soup over the weekend and it was amazing how much depth of flavor was added to the soup and how the fish sauce cuts through the richness and sweetness of those fall flavors.
