I know I wrote about some of my experiences eating in Nashville, but this one is a bit more elaborate and detailed about the food. Honestly, I didn’t mean to write two, but I’m writing a wrong here and just going to leave both redundant posts:)
The Patterson House is an exclusive gem located just down the road from Vanderbilt and a short walk from our hotel of choice–the Hutton Hotel, a wonderful place I might add. The bartenders here were fabulous and on point with their cocktails once we finally got our requested seats at the bar. There was about a 45 minute wait and no one was allowed past the curtain to even peep the bar until your name was called. I have never seen a waiting room like this for a cocktail lounge. The snacks looked appealing as well, but we were saving up for our anticipated meal at HUSK. There is a special sign in the lobby to express The Patterson House rules, including “no starf******”. Not even rock stars get special treatment to cut the line here! Overall, this place is a must to visit while in Nashville; just arrive early and bring along your patience.
The trout was amazing! I really loved how they paired it with the most delicious navy beans. Roasted gourds, as a starter, were a great choice as well. We enjoyed the “wines by the glass” list and selected a Rose and two whites to pair with our meals.
The next night, we opted for izakaya (a type of informal Japanese Gastropub). Two Ten Jack had a contemporary and dim yet cozy atmosphere with delightful Japanese inspired creations shown below:
