There’s no question we hear more often: Where should I go eat? And while we at Resy know it’s an honor to be the friend who everyone asks for restaurant advice, we also know it’s a complicated task. That’s where the Resy Hit List comes in. 

We’ve designed it to be your essential resource for dining in Nashville: a monthly-updated (and newly expanded!) guide to the restaurants in that you won’t want to miss — tonight or any night.

Four Things In Nashville Not to Miss This Month

  • School of Brock Is In Session: Nashville chef Sean Brock of Audrey and June shares his voluminous culinary knowledge with a new series of Wednesday night cooking classes he’s cheekily calling “School of Brock.” Students will walk through the preparation of a three-course menu in the June kitchen followed by a tour of the culinary research lab, and the chance to eat their homework with Brock in his private library. In more Brock news, he recently announced plans to open a Birmingham outpost of his ode to his favorite fast-food dishes, Joyland. The new home for Brock’s iconic “crust burger” should open sometime in late spring.
  • Your New “Fun Uncle:” The team behind the popular North Gulch restaurant The Mockingbird has again spread their wings to Franklin with plans to open the second edition of Tio Fun, a Mexican concept serving extravagant and indulgent dishes like an oversized chorizo taco that covers the entire plate, a footlong Tijuana hot dog, and a gooey, cheesy carnitas melt.
  • Make a Splash at White Limozeen: In a sure sign that warmer weather is approaching, The Governor’s Pool at White Limozeen atop the Graduate Hotel has announced its 2024 opening date on May 1. They’ll celebrate the first day of swim season with an evening open swim, a lively set by DJ Chase, and rummy cocktails from Captain Morgan. The rooftop pool deck is decorated by a huge bust of Dolly Parton, so it’s the perfect spot for a Music City selfie.
  • Get to Know Tailor’s Spring Alteration: Any trip to Tailor is a festive occasion as chef/owner Vivek Surti engages the assembled diners with stories of his culinary journey as a first-generation American of Indian descent. It’s like being a guest at a jovial dinner party, and April features the launch of Tailor’s new seasonal menu. Surti’s first fully pescatarian lineup features dishes like a smoked sea bass tostada served with hariyali masala, then topped with a sprinkle of pickled spring onions. Book here.
