USA Today “Nashville’s Food Scene Fine Tunes for National Stage”


article by USA Today written by Megan Pacella

Nashville is best known as a must-see destination for music lovers. But hidden amongst the famous honky tonk bars are dozens of incredible places to eat and drink, especially in the last few years. Don’t let the twang of the steel guitar distract you from emerging food offerings by world-class chefs and champions of southern cuisine. Here are our picks for the best new restaurants putting Music City on the map.

In December, Ben and Max Goldberg opened an all-day coffee shop, restaurant, bar and bowling alley to offer customers a three-dimensional social experience. If possible, block out time to enjoy every aspect of Pinewood Social. Start in the coffee shop with a fine pour-over, then move on to the restaurant for a locally-sourced meal (we recommend the pork belly breakfast sandwich). After you eat, grab a cocktail and spend an hour knocking down pins on the reclaimed retro bowling lanes. If you can choose only one aspect of this unique venue, make brunch your top priority.
