Nashville food and beverage scene

Recommended Posts


I always did kind of feel that in the midst of the "it city" hysteria the Nashville restaurant scene was getting a bit overpopulated.  It's probably normal to see things kind of settle back down to a comfortable median after such a mad dash.

Yall need to check this place out. If you guys haven't tried authentic Vietnamese food it's pretty good.

Weird, I passed by this place earlier and was wondering why I had never heard of it. I’ve met quite a few Vietnamese people that live in that area, from White Bridge down to Hillwood/Annex on Charlotte.

The vietnamese sandwiches are pretty good. You should it out. It's like buy 4 and get one free or something.

A new boba tea shop in Nashville! 

Dude it’s seriously like you’re my Tyler Durden unconscious alter-ego or something. Someone was just telling me about this place last week. I don’t think I had ever heard of Boba or bubble tea before.

Boba tea is :P,  depends on which flavor you prefer.

Yeah, that's what I heard. I haven't been yet, but my friends tell me it's pretty good.

I'm so excited for the Antioch Slim and Husky's.  I tried it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I wasn't disappointed.

The Logan's Roadhouse on Elliston Place is shutting its doors, only to reopen a few months from now as the newest location of Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint.

Gosh, I'd forgotten there was a Logan's Roadhouse on Elliston. Maybe that was part of its problem.

The Logans location in Chattanooga on Gunbarrel just closed too. Maybe it's a corporate issue.

I don't recall ever going ... come to think of it, I think I went to that one on Elliston years ago... there was a outdoor patio/firepit. But other than that, not a thing.

Ugh... well, the restaurant going in is a vast upgrade, but I was really hoping that whenever Logan's moved out that ridiculously suburban building would be leveled.  Oh well.  Guess there are worse things than one of the world's best BBQ joints moving into the neighborhood.

I love Martin's, but the downtown one does not compare to any other location. It is designed to move tourists in and out as fast as possible. Martin's is the closest BBQ that I have found here to what I grew up with in West TN.

I did not major in Marketing in B school... but I'd say that would be a problem. Word of mouth is powerful. And tourists have "big" mouths. Nashvillians may know/love "the original". But as soon as the NY Times et. al. get ahold of the downtown location (because they almost never veer off the same old paths), then the reputation gets out... for good or bad. I have never had Martins, but already I'm wondering.

Dont like Martins either.  Both times I have been I was disappointed. Too much hype .

I've never been... I'm just going based on all the hype I hear... which I'm definitely not helping with. haha

I like Martin's over the others. They have dry rub ribs like you find in Memphis / West Tennessee. The pulled pork is pulled, not shredded. **I normally eat at the Nolensville (original) location
