Noshing in Nashville 

I know I wrote about some of my experiences eating in Nashville, but this one is a bit more elaborate and detailed about the food.  Honestly, I didn’t mean to write two, but I’m writing a wrong here and just going to leave both redundant posts:)

The Patterson House is an exclusive gem located just down the road from Vanderbilt and a short walk from our hotel of choice–the Hutton Hotel, a wonderful place I might add.  The bartenders here were fabulous and on point with their cocktails once we finally got our requested seats at the bar.  There was about a 45 minute wait and no one was allowed past the curtain to even peep the bar until your name was called.  I have never seen a waiting room like this for a cocktail lounge.  The snacks looked appealing as well, but we were saving up for our anticipated meal at HUSK.  There is a special sign in the lobby to express The Patterson House rules, including “no starf******”.  Not even rock stars get special treatment to cut the line here!  Overall, this place is a must to visit while in Nashville; just arrive early and bring along your patience.  

The trout was amazing!  I really loved how they paired it with the most delicious navy beans.  Roasted gourds, as a starter, were a great choice as well.  We enjoyed the “wines by the glass” list and selected a Rose and two whites to pair with our meals.

The next night, we opted for izakaya (a type of informal Japanese Gastropub).  Two Ten Jack had a contemporary and dim yet cozy atmosphere with delightful Japanese inspired creations shown below:
