Bon Appetit Grub Crawl – Nashville

Bon Appetit Grub Crawl - Nashville
A few weeks ago we spent the weekend in Nashville for the Bon Appetit Grub Crawl
Bon Appetit offered two grub crawls – Downtown and The Gulch.
We went all in and went on both crawls!
We ate and drank our way around Nashville and had so much fun!
There was a great variety of restaurants. 
We added several to our list to try next time we are in town.
Here is the link to the website:

Bon Appetit Grub Crawl - Nashville

Pinewood Social Nashville
33 Peabody St
Nashville, TN 37210
Pinewood Social Nashville
Our first stop on the Downtown Grub Crawl was at Pinewood Social.
I was really excited to check it out. It has a bowling alley inside the restaurant! 
It reminded me of The Painted Pen in Atlanta.
We had some delicious food at Pinewood Social.
My favorite was the Burrata and Tomato Marmalade on Toast. I ate way too many!
They had several cocktails to choose from. I sampled them all (I didn’t finish them all).
My favorite was the Mimosa.
Merchants Restaurant Nashville
401 Broadway 
Nashville, TN 37203
Merchants Restaurant Nashville
Our second stop was Merchants on Broadway. We have walked past Merchants numerous times and have never been in. I can’t believe we were missing such a gem!
We were served Mint Juleps and a Blinker cocktail (whiskey, raspberry liquor, grapefruit and lemon juice). YUM!!!!
The food was amazing! We had shrimp and goat cheese quesadillas, fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese and duck fat tater tots! I could have eaten my weight in those duck fat tots!!!
We are coming back!
Etch Restaurant Nashville

303 Demonbreun Street
Nashville, TN 37201
Etch Restaurant Nashville
Etch was super nice. We were served a full meal.
Truffle Roated Cauliflower with a feta dip, Salad, Lamb Meatballs and Macarons.
The macarons were pumpkin spice and earl grey chocolate. They were amazing!

Robert's Western World -  Nashville
416B Broadway
Nashville, TN 37203
Robert's Western World -  Nashville
Our last stop on the Downtown Crawl was at Robert’s Western World on Broadway.
That Elvis impersonator in the first photo is the owner, Robert. He often plays in the restaurant.
This was Chicken Legs favorite stop. They served PBR and Fried Bologna Sandwiches.
They also had a buffet with fried macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, jalape├▒o poppers and banana pudding.
There were also Moon Pies!
We’ll be back for that Fried Bologna Sandwich!

***The Gulch***
Adele's - Nashville, TN
1210 McGavock Street
Nashville TN 37203
Adele's - Nashville, TN
After a little break at the hotel, we headed to The Gulch Grub Crawl.
The first stop on The Gulch crawl was at Adele’s.
O-M-G! This place was amazing!!!
I wanted to just stay here and eat dinner.
Every single thing was incredible.
We are eating dinner here next time we are in Nashville. 

Yazoo Brewery - Nashville, TN
910 Division Street 
Nashville, TN 37203
Yazoo Brewery - Nashville, TN
Our second stop was at Yazoo Brewery. It is the local Nashville brewery.
We got to sample all the beer.
The food was provided by Hattie B’s Hot Chicken and dessert was Las Paletas Gourmet Popsicles.
We tried the strawberry lime popsicle – it tasted like a strawberry margarita.
It helped cool our mouthes off after that wonderful hot chicken.

Peg Leg Porker - Nashville, TN
903 Gleaves St 
Nashville, TN 37203
Peg Leg Porker - Nashville, TN
The third stop was at Peg Leg Porker. 
Peg Leg Porker was on my list of places to try, so I was excited to eat here.
Peg Leg Porker’s specialty is their dry ribs. They were really good.
We also sampled the baked beans, mac and cheese, pimento cheese and pork rinds.

The Patterson House - Nashville Speakeasy
1711 Division St 
Nashville, TN 37203
The Patterson House - Nashville Speakeasy
The Patterson House was a real treat.
It is a speakeasy style bar.
They make amazing craft cocktails. They use fresh squeezed juices and it makes all the difference.
If you go to the Patterson House, do not miss the sugared doughnuts!
They are to-die-for!!!!!
Can’t wait to go back!
Bon Appetit Grub Crawl - Nashville
***The After Party***
The Rosewall - Nashville, TN
The Rosewall

1207 McGavock St 
Nashville, TN 37203

After The Gulch Grub Crawl there was an after party at The Rosewall.
The after party was included in the cost of your crawl ticket.
Everyone from both crawls could go.
There was tons of food and drinks for everyone.
They even had live music.
We weren’t able to eat very much – we were absolutely stuffed from crawling around Nashville.
We had SO much fun.
We discovered so many great places in Nashville.
I highly suggest going on a Bon Appetit Grub Crawl if you have the opportunity!
I am definitely going to be checking for future grub crawls in other cities.
