Flyte World Dining and Wine
Voted the Best New Restaurant in 2007 by Nashville Scene and still going strong is Flyte World Dining and Wine, a comfortably casual, yet elegant spot in west Nashville. "Flytes"—small samples of wine—may bring you here, but the New American menu will get you to stay beyond the bar scene. A three-course prix-fixe menu is popular. On the regular seasonal menu you can choose from an appetizer of scallop mousse, with bay scallops, chanterelle mushrooms, truffle oil, and tarragon cream, and for an entree try the braised lamb shank, served with mushroom-whiskey risotto, braised carrot and green beans. Desserts are comfort food all the way with sweet potato pie and Karma Apple. Interesting wines, fine beers and good, locally grown food—what more could you want?

With live jazz seven nights a week and a contemporary American menu in a casual, yet sophisticated setting, this Green Hills neighborhood spot stays true to its roots. With a menu changing from top to bottom four times a year with the seasons, the original concept of F. Scott's is maintained. Local, fresh ingredients are the mainstay of a menu that offers soup of the day along with pizza of the day. The menu can include duck breast with roasted sweet potatoes, braised Swiss chard, rhubarb chutney, pepper jelly, and caramelized onion biscuits or chicken breast lightly dusted with Porcini mushroom, pancetta and tomato braised leg and Parmigiano-Reggiano polenta. Comfort foods included macaroni and cheese with bacon (as a side) or vegetable lasagna.

If dinner at Jimmy Kelly's feels like an evening in a Southern mansion, that's exactly what it is. Nashville's dining landmark since 1934, the cluster of dining rooms around the center staircase all feature the same hearty choices. Although veal, chicken and seafood distinguish the menu, most regulars—and savvy visitors—choose beef. The aged, hand-cut steaks come in several cuts and sizes and all are delicious. Fortunately, the famous corncakes are served with every meal.

If you can't resist a legend, you'll find the trip outside of town to the Loveless Cafe worthwhile.

The Nashville tradition is open daily and you won't leave hungry.

True to its name, the Midtown Cafe is located near Music Row, Vanderbilt and downtown. The friendly staff, large portions and Mediterranean influences are not the only reasons for its popularity. Good food keeps patrons coming back for appetizers, which may be lemon artichoke soup, polenta crusted Brie, spinach and goat cheese strudel, and marinated Portobello mushrooms with fried leeks. Pastas will feature pesto, shellfish, duck confit and figs, or hearty vegetables; while entrees include breast of duck Calvados, catch-of-the-day in parchment, saltimboca, and grilled lamb chops and steaks. Too bad diners seem to have no room left for the homemade desserts. Midtown Cafe
