1. Drusie & Darr by Jean-Georges
John-Georges Vongerichten’s Nashville restaurant continues to shine as it settles into the gorgeous, historic Hermitage Hotel. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner incorporate produce from the Hotel’s garden at Glen Leven, the historic 64-acre farm just miles away. Served in the stunning dining room, dishes like sweet pea soup with Parmesan foam and porcini-crusted Faroe Island salmon with warm leeks vinaigrette are available a la carte, while a tasting menu option kicks off with a delicate egg toast generously topped with caviar. It’s a great spot for a celebratory meal, but an excellent location for an impromptu lunch with friends and cold wine, too.
