Tucked away beneath Encore in Downtown Nashville, Etch has been hailed as one of the best fine dining establishments in the city. Thanks to culinary genius Deb Paquette, Etch has become known for dishes with bold flavor profiles and colorful presentations. The full bar and open kitchen with bar-like seating allows patrons to interact with Paquette and her kitchen staff, creating a whole dining experience not found elsewhere. The comprehensive wine list and decadent dessert round out the fantastically creative menu. Be sure to book in advance, as this popular restaurant is always buzzing with patrons.
No outside light finds its way into the house, which creates a dimly romantic setting. Intimate and private, Valentino's Ristorante is a favorite choice for amorous couples looking for a night out. Enjoy traditional Italian cuisine featuring veal, chicken and pasta dishes, served with a Caesar salad prepared at your table. Lasagna is the house specialty, and it is excellent. The chef has no fear of extra cheese (low fat eaters beware), and the sauces are rich and spicy. An extensive wine list and other beverages tempt the palate.
This quaint little eatery's charming and simplistic design will transport you to a quiet and picturesque village in Europe. Flower pots blossoming with color, a handwritten menu, and oversized sunflowers on the patio complement the simple, white tablecloths and exposed brick walls. Strong country flavors arise from piping hot dishes and there's a menu for each day and season. Try dishes like Grilled Quail with lentils and braised greens or Homemade Spaghetti with oven-dried tomatoes, olives, caper, and white anchovies. A good wine list tops off the meal.
