Nashville Restaurant Week Kicks Off

Back by popular demand, it’s Nashville Originals‘ Restaurant Week! Starting today and running through Sunday, the Originals restaurants are offering deals ranging from a $20.09 lunch for two to 3-course dinners for $30.09.

Participating restaurants include Flyte, Cabana, Sunset Grill, Acorn, Germantown Cafe, Mambu, Cha Chah, Rumba, tayst, Fido, Yellow Porch, Zola and several more. Click here for more details on all the participating restaurants and to find a menu that makes you salivate.

I’m eyeing The Standard’s menu at the moment: An appetizer of tempura battered squash blossoms with ricotto, parmesan and peach relish, followed by an entree of grilled gulf cobia with crawfish etoufee and potato casserole, finishing with a chantilly cream topped chocolate cobbler. My goodness.

Now’s the time to hit up that new hot spot you’ve heard so much about (Cha Chah?), revisit an old favorite (Tin Angel?), or perhaps check out the culinary skills of Chef Jeremy Barlow of tayst, the winner of the 2009 Iron Fork competition. After you read tomorrow’s recap of a recent dinner at tayst I bet you won’t be able to resist.

Make your reservations now because the seats will fill up fast this week! Happy Eating.
