“Located in downtown's L&C Tower, Deacon's New South is a modern steakhouse with a fun, art deco vibe. While the brunch menu is somewhat concise, you'll find everything from a brunch burger to muesli and oyster shakshuka on deck. An impressive cocktail list is the perfect complement to the eclectic meal options.”

“Best sports bar in Nasville -- esp if you are a Steelers fan (we go even though we are not steelers fans ;) ) still a fun place with music / karaoke at times and the INFAMOUS DONUT BURGER / BREAKFAST SHOTS / AND AMAZING SANDWHICHES (the fries and slaw are a must on your sandwich. I might have my own sandwich on the menu :) :) so try the Italian stallion or late night the Bacon Egg and cheese!”

“Ok this place is the best sushi in town but the owner is known as the sushi nazi. He will lock the door and ask if you have been here before. You must lie and say yes, but it's worth it.”
