Seven Nashville Restaurants Where We Want To Be Regulars


A truly welcoming neighborhood restaurant is easily identifiable by its regulars. They’re the diners who slide into the corner seat at the bar with a small wave and a smile to whoever’s behind the bar, the hosts who bring their friends to share their favorite dishes on the menu, and the family who dines early every week with their kids before the restaurant gets busy. And what brings them back? Excellent food, of course, but also the hospitality, vibes, and the certainty that everything will always be just right.

Finding the place where you can walk in and order your “usual” is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and Nashville has great places to settle in and make yourself at home. Check out these regular-worthy restaurants that range from a bustling izakaya to a classic bistro.
