On Friday, I had the chance to taste all of the city’s best food. At Taste of Nashville!Some of you might recall that I attended this stellar food-and-drink event last year, so I was pretty excited to head back again this year. I took my friend Tracee as my date! The event was held in the same space with some of the same vendors/restaurants as last year (with some new surprises) — but, the attendance was capped at 300 people less this year! More room for mingling and no lines to wait in. Nice.
After we grabbed glasses of vino, Tracee and I got to tasting! Citrusy scallops from St. Anejo:Beef in fish sauce with hot peppers from Virago. Sounded odd, but was actually delicious! We went back for seconds on this one Hot chicken! From the one and only Hattie B’s. Thank goodness they only served mild spice level.This carrot “carbonara” dish was interesting. Made by Opryland’s Ravello, I believe?Seafood bisque from Bricktops was a fave. Though the miniature spoons made it difficult to eat! Ain’t nobody got time for that.Korean bbq tacos! Created by Riff’s.And finally: A sweet treat from Nashville’s GooGoo. After sampling bits and bites of everything, Tracee and I took our stuffed selves back home with a list of new-to-us Nashville restaurants to visit. Thanks for having me, Taste of Nashville! Hope to see you next year 😉
