1. Henrietta Red
From Nashville native Julia Sullivan, Henrietta Red is the city’s modern ode on Southern seafood. Raw oysters are a large part of the menu, with options from Alabama to Maine, and out to the West Coast. Do not skip out on Poppy’s Caviar, an herby sour cream-based dip topped with Tennessee paddlefish roe, or the jumbo lump crab dip served with wood-fired bread. Henrietta’s hip Germantown location makes it an easy visit after a day touring the city.
