I recently visited Nashville (more on that in an upcoming post) and this restaurant was definitely the highlight of my trip.
I don't know how to write about this place. I really don't. Everything I say will be superlative and you won't believe me since people don't often believe in magic.
Can I say with certainty that this is the best food served in Tennessee? Of course not, I haven't been to 90% of the restaurants here. But I can say that this was one of the top three meals of my life, thus far. If you find yourself ANYwhere near Franklin, TN - it would be considered a sin not to eat here. I went here for the first time recently with a loved one and our entire dinner conversation was based on what we ate. Is that normal? No. Is that what had to happen? No question.
We found ourselves thinking thoughts like, "How dare SHORTS be worn and allowed in the presence of this kind of food?" and "If there's a witch in the kitchen right now stirring an enormous caldron full of potions, I would believe it" and "There has to be drugs in here. What is happening."
The menu changes seasonally and if you go this season, I beg you to get the sausage pizza as a main, the Nutella mousse panna cotta, the crème brulee, the beef tenderloin, the burrata bruchetta, THE BEEF DUMPLINGS.
It's abnormal that people don't cheer or give applause on their way out the door. It's almost insulting that they don't, to be honest.
Fuck your Goo Goo Clusters, Nashville. This is the only place you need to visit.
