Butchertown Hall – First Bites

Butchertown Hall combines Tex Mex, Hill Country BBQ and perfectly shareable plates. It adds another great option to the Germantown neighborhood of Nashville, while also filling a lunch and brunch gap in the neighborhood.
Not to mention the interior of this restaurant  is fantastic. They’ve brought nature inside, and combined it with white washed vaulted ceilings, while all seeming very industrial chic.

Four of us ordered 1/2 lb of carnitas, 1/2 lb of beef brisket, one order of the recommended sausage, 3 elote salads (think Mexican street corn, off of the cob, yum!), one order of the borracho beans… and then we each got out own taco.
The wait staff was very helpful when selecting and ordering.
Have you tried Butchertown Hall yet? If not give it a try. We had the best time and I can’t wait to get back on a weekend and check out their brunch!


A Nashville Favorite – Rolf and Daughters

A dear friend – and fellow blogger, seededinthesouth.com – of mine came to Nashville last night for work. As soon as she said she would be available for drinks and dinner, I knew I exactly where I wanted to take her, my consistent favorite, Rolf and Daughters in Germantown. Even on a cold, snowy Wednesday night, Rolf & Daughters was brimming with patrons. Walk in’s are available and welcome, but regardless of the night I recommend a reservation. After a cocktail at the bar, we were seated at a cozy, two top and had the perfect winter meal. Natalie and I shared everything. We started with crostini with broccoli, then had lettuces with butternut squash, apple, and puffed quinoa. The “puffed” quinoa added a delightful and unexpected crunch. After our starters, we split the chicken with preserved lemon and garlic confit and my ever favorite the garganelli verde with pork ragout. I would order this exact meal again and again. Thanks to Rolf and Daughters for another impeccable evening!
