    We chose Etch for our anniversary dinner because the food is well reviewed, the setting is “casual/elegant,” and the moderate noise level allows for good conversation. We shared an appetizer of roasted cauliflower and an Etch salad. Both were excellent. The three sauces for the cauliflower were especially interesting. One of us had the venison: perfectly cooked medium rare with a delicious sauce. The plate was beautiful with the additions of baked butternut squash, greens, and circled by a flourish of mashed potatoes. The other entree was the chicken special: tender bone-in breast in two pieces, perfectly fried with green beans and puréed sweet potatoes and a helping of sweet potato chips. We only had room for one dessert. It was a perfect slice of Black Forest cheesecake, with blue berries and an excellent wafer of dark chocolate. We were treated to a flute of champagne and felt very special on this significant anniversary. Our server was terrific. We will go back.

    We celebrated our anniversary here after many recommendations and had a wonderful experience. Mark was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. The smoked old fashioned was the best we’ve ever had. We had a wonderful time.

Discover Nashville

Country music can be polarizing. You either love it, or you don’t. Nashville’s food scene, on the other hand, is tough not to like. There’s something for almost every taste and we hear the hot wings just keep getting better. Be it cold brew coffee houses, the ever-popular barbecue, or inventive Southern dishes—you name it, Nashville’s got it. And yes, be prepared to be serenaded by buskers on street corners. It’s called the Music City for a reason.
