food and drink NS 2021

Tucked in a sleepy little shopping center in Bellevue that houses a T.J. Maxx and a mattress store are some of the best Creole food options in Nashville. Voodoo Gumbo joins HoneyFire BBQ and IT’Z A Philly Thing in the resurgence of Bellevue’s dining scene (joining classic Mexican staple US Border Cantina), with its signature dish, a pitch-perfect ode to New Orleans cuisine. Also on its menu are étouffée, jambalaya, po’boys and, of course, beignets. There’s just not a lot of quality options in town for Big Easy cooking, and Voodoo Gumbo offers some of the best to come around in quite some time. Just make sure to save room for dessert; gumbo is sneakily filling.
