Where to eat/drink in downtown Louisville?

I'm not a local, but really enjoyed the brunch at Hillbilly Tea just a couple of weeks ago.

Most memorable dish in Nashville this year (2013)?

Will,

That would be the Woodlands Indian Restaurant in that funky building at the corner of Murphy Road and West End, just by 440. Great lunch buffet, but the dinner service is better.

Favorite way to use kimchi?

Kimchi, a coddled egg, and pulled pork in my ramen is my favorite way...

Nashville in June

Fleet Street Pub in Printer's Alley is relatively new and very good for food & drink, not sure on the music front though. However, Bourbon Street Blues & Boogie Bar is close by for music needs...

Agree on Gojo. Excellent lunch buffet!

Nashville - end of March

I don't buy that knock on Swett's either. It's certainly not been my experience with them (at least at the main or farmer's market locations - can't speak to the airport outlet).

Also, if you're looking for BBQ near the Opry, Jack's on West Trinity is probably your closest good option.

One dinner in Nashville: Best BBQ?

I would definitely choose Martin's over any of the others you have listed..

Recs for a Nashville dinner and breakfast

It would be really helpful in responding to this to know what day of the week this request is for.

1 night in Nashville

Stockyard was overrated back in it's heyday. Hasn't been on the serious restaurant map in Nashville for 20 years. And the Big Bang Piano Bar just sucks. Neither is a place for serious foodies...

You might want to run by Henpeck Market when you're down toward Franklin on Monday...

Have to disagree on Stockyard, Big Bang & Pearl Sushi. Neely's is good, but have my doubts about these other rec's...

Hash browns in Nashville

Agree on Pancake Pantry. The hash browns are their single best food item. However, they are not the shredded style.

Big Trip - Chicago to Knoxville to Nashville to Lansing

While in the Nashville area, make your way out to Nolensville to visit Martin's for BBQ. What you want is listed as a "Redneck Taco" on the menu. Basically pulled pork BBQ and slaw on top of a large hoecake. Actually, most everything on the menu is good, but the RT is special!

Nashville trip report - long

"Scarily Empty" was apparently an apt phrase, as Ombi closed in early June.

Food on the Bourbon Trail

I highly recommend the Beaumont Inn in Harrodsburg, KY. Some of the best country ham and fried chicken I've ever had and in a beatiful setting.

Food near Gaylord Opryland?

Missy -- You should definitely rent a car as there is little of note in the immediate vicinity of the Hotel...

Looking for best, reasonably priced Steak in Nashville, Tn

I've never had good luck with the steak at Demos. It would be helpful, though, to know what you would consider to be a "reasonable" price range in order to give a recommendation...

Demo's in downtown Nashville?....

Since you'll be in town on a weekday, you may want to consider taking your 12YO to the downtown arcade for lunch one day. Best place is probably House of Pizza (assuming you are not from Chicago, NYC, or New Haven, CT), though there are others. The Arcade opened in 1903 and was Nashville's first mall. Located between Fourth & Fifth Avenue North, it was modeled after the Centennial Arcade in Milan, Italy. Lots of interesting places to check out including the Peanut Shop, an old-fashioned candy & nut shop, worth it if only for the smell of hot roasted nuts...

Experience at Watermark - Nashville (long)

My experiences with Watermark have been in line with jamiecarroll's, but it has been several months since I have been. Additionally, we have always sat in the smaller upstairs room rather than the main dining room. Much quieter and more intimate.
