5 Restaurants in Nashville We’re Excited to Get Back to

A Story By

We have loved supporting local restaurants in Nashville through carryout and delivery. It has given us a sense of familiarity in times that feel so uncertain. We applaud and commend the restaurant industry that has been working tirelessly to keep our stomachs and beer glasses full. 

That being said, we are thrilled at the idea of sitting down at a table and having a server approach us and ask, “Can I start you guys off with any cocktails?” The phases in Nashville might be going in the opposite direction than we hoped for, but as of now, we can still dine-in at participating restaurants.

Keep reading to find out the restaurants in Nashville that we missed the most. 

SUN–MON | CLOSED
TUES–SAT | 5 P.M.–9 P.M.

📍81 Van Buren St, Nashville, TN

O-Ku Nashville is nestled in Germantown and we couldn’t love it more. The staff is so hospitable, the food is unbelievable, and the drinks are on point. Its unique take on Asian cuisine made it an instant staple in the city. We suggest ordering a couple things and sharing, because there’s so much worth trying.

What to eat: Braised Short Rib
What to drink: Shogun

✅ Dine-In
✅ Takeout
✅ Delivery

The beachy vibe here isn’t what Nashvillians may be accustomed to, but this hip new spot has fit right in. It almost instantly became *the* Instagram photo-shoot destination, but it brings more to the table than just that. The food checks off every box of the perfect brunch!

What to eat: Coastal Avocado Toast
What to drink: A Day In The Patch

✅ Dine-In
✅ Takeout
❌ Delivery

MON–THURS | 11 A.M.–10 P.M.
FRI | 11. A.M.–11 P.M.
SAT | 10 A.M.–11 P.M.
SUN | 10 A.M.–10 P.M.

📍201 1st Ave S, Nashville, TN

SUN–WEDS | 11 A.M.–7 P.M.
THURS–SAT | 11 A.M.–11 P.M.

📍423 6th Ave S, Nashville, TN

Okay, so you  might not consider this brewery/distillery hybrid a restaurant, per say. But the walk-up taco window has fantastic food, and the Prince’s Hot Chicken truck outside hits the spot! Both options are the perfect balance to this adult playground.

What to eat: Pork Belly Taco
What to drink: Ole Smoky Moonshine Tasting

✅ Dine-In
✅ Takeout
❌ Delivery

We fell in love with this spot during the cold weather months, but the food is so delicious we’ve found ourselves craving it year round. Ramen is now our favorite feel-good dish, thanks to Otaku. The free hour of parking in the garage next door is just another great perk of this Gulch gem. 

What to eat: Szechuan Pork Miso
What to drink: Ramune Original

✅ Dine-In
✅ Takeout
❌ Delivery
(delivery available from East Nashville location)

📍1004 4th Ave N

We’re not sure if it’s the giant beers, German food, or good vibes that keep us coming back to this place… but no matter what it is, we just love it. The atmosphere is always upbeat and it’s the perfect place to sit outside and unwind a bit. Our favorite time to go is right before we head into a Sounds game! 

What to eat: Panchos with brisket
What to drink: Neighborhood Pilsner

✅ Dine-In
✅ Takeout
✅ Delivery

Who Are We Kidding? We Couldn't Stop At Just 5!

Okay, okay we’ll stop now… or else we’ll be here all day naming where we love to eat! Stay hungry, Nashville. Our favorite spots are hopefully staying open for good.
