The Southern Steak & Oyster

Rarely do I entertain Louisiana cuisine outside of my homeland, but good gracious, this place is where it’s at. We always start with a pitcher of mimosas and a couple of Bloody Marys, made with Nashville’s own Walker’s Bloody Mary Mix. My go-to is the shrimp and grits. It’s. Seaux. Gewd. I lack the self-discipline to order something different. A gypsy jazz band plays homage to the restaurant concept and offers a taste of Nashville’s eclectic music scene.


This bar and restaurant is great around the clock. From the array of food selection to the strong drink menu, you can find yourself indulging from lunch till late night with their DJ hosted bar scene. The only thing better than spending your day dining with them is starting your weekend morning brunching. If you want things to be perfect, order the Singapore Stir Fry and a Bloody Mary—always two-for-one. You are welcome.

Capitol Grille

Capitol Grille (not to be confused with the chain Capital Grille) is nestled in the historic Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville. Chef Tyler Brown focuses on fresh farm-to-table ingredients, sourced locally from the restaurant’s two farms. Reservations are suggested, especially for Sunday brunch—you’ll want to try the award-winning Tennessee “Jack” Sandwich, made with Jack Daniels toast and jowl bacon. And don’t leave without taking a peek in the famous men’s art-deco bathroom (you too, ladies!).

Monell’s (Germantown)

Monell’s is known for its all-you-can-eat southern fixins, but this Nashville original is more than just a place to binge. Every meal is fixed price & BYOB, you’ll also be seated at a table “family style.” Enter as strangers, leave as friends. Mind your manners and pass to the left—don’t worry, there’s plenty for seconds. Don’t miss out on the corn puddin’, skillet fried chicken (served with every meal), meatloaf, sweet potatoes…You just might get lucky and have peach cobbler for dessert!

Marche Artisan Foods

If you decide to venture towards Marche’s 5 Points location for a Saturday or Sunday brunch, you’ll probably see a group of folks gaggled around the front door waiting for a seat. Don’t let this line bum you out. Soon you’ll be rushed in and treated to a brunch that would make anyone want to nod and smile at a total stranger. Get some pastries—you deserve pastries. Get some orange juice with some booze in it—you deserve orange juice with booze in it. Relax—it’s brunch.
