Arnold's Country Kitchen
Opening hours: Mon to Fri 10.30-2.45pm
Watch out for: The casual, friendly local vibe.
When you think of Nashville you think country music but Nashville’s food scene is also worth a look in for its diversity and flair. The city has its fair share of southern comfort food restaurants but also has quite a few international restaurants and other adventurous eateries besides. Just check out this selection of joints to try on its bustling 8th Avenue strip.
If you think that southern food is super cheap and only sold in back alley hole-in-the-walls then you won’t be expecting the refined likes of The Standard at the Smith House. The Smith House is the only grand townhouse left in Nashville, built in 1840. It is a historical monument in the heart of downtown and has emerged as one of the best restaurants in Nashville for its suave take on regional cuisine.
Opening hours: Mon to Thu 5-9pm, Fri to Sat 5-10pm
Watch out for: The Standard Private Cigar Club, which was voted as the one of best cigar clubs in the US.
Address: The Standard, 167 Rosa L Parks Blvd, Nashville, TN, USA, +1 (615) 254-1277
