Nashville is a great city to live in and a great city to visit! I always say it is not too big and not too small. Whether you are wanting to try out your first Southern fare while you are visiting or whether you are a local wanting to try some upscale Southern food in a swanky downtown setting, I have a suggestion for you- Kitchen Notes Restaurant located in the Omni Nashville Hotel. I have been to Kitchen Notes a few times before but they have just introduced new menus so I thought I would share a few of their new dishes with you. Here’s the scoop on this farm-to-table Southern restaurant in Nashville.
Kitchen Notes- Southern Nashville Restaurant
My husband and I have been trying to make time for date nights as part of our commitment to focus more on each other and strengthen our marriage. We are trying to break out of our shell and enjoy more of the downtown Nashville offerings so when I heard about the new menu at Kitchen Notes, I invited my husband to be my escort for a night out. The Omni Nashville is a beautiful hotel so I dressed up and we made a night of it. This isn’t just any Southern restaurant in Nashville, it offers more elevated spins on authentic Southern cuisine.
All of the new breakfast, lunch and supper menus still focus on traditional Southern dishes with fresh sustainable ingredients in keeping with the Kitchen Notes farm-to-table concept. We tried out the new dinner menu.
First we took a gander at the drink menu. Nothing helps you get the feel of a restaurant and place like a taste of their specialty cocktails or local craft brews. My husband chose the Tennessee Old Fashioned and I chose the Blueberry Tea Lemonade- both excellently made.
Next we selected appetizers. My husband was tempted by the charred Caesar salad which makes a great winter salad. I got the She-Crab soup which was rather a unusual twist on She-Crab soup with more depth of flavor. It was reminded me more of gumbo spices and was very good!
For entrees, I chose the “Minute” Steak. I am a sucker for a good chimichurri sauce and I couldn’t resist trying the Green Tomato Chimichurri and blistered Shishito peppers. My husband went for the Half Bird Nashville Hot Fried Chicken Bucket. Hot Chicken is a classic you really must try if you haven’t yet. The spice is put into the breading and it is so tasty. Kitchen Notes does a great job with the chicken brine because the meat is very tender and flavorful. It also comes with two sides so you can get your Southern on even more! My husband chose the Farmhouse Pimento Mac & Cheese and the tatertots with brown gravy.
Finally, we finished off our evening of Southern Fare by sharing a the Dutch Apple Pie served with caramel and cinnamon ice cream. Is was some good, y’all!
