Food is said to be the gateway to a person’s heart, and there are few places that will warm yours quite like Nashville. In the home of Country Music, the hearty dishes that grace the menus of many iconic restaurants — like shrimp ‘n’ grits, baby back ribs, red velvet cake, buttery biscuits and slow roasted meats — are meant to comfort you.
For that true, eclectic taste of the bounty of food that’s found in Nashville, we headed to one of biggest food and beverage festivals, Nissan Taste of Music City. This festival payed homage to the comfort and nostalgia that food brings to music city, but also showcased the exciting new trends emerging in the food and cocktail scenes. We went with a hearty appetite, and it’s a good thing! This is one festival that’ll never let you leave hungry! Check out our experience below!
