  • The Tin Angel
    "Make it good, make it interesting, and try to avoid getting weird for weird's sake." Those are the words of Tin Angel co-owner Rick Bolsom, who recently spoke with Nashville Lifestyles about the values that inform his restaurant?s menu of upscale American food. What's most important to him, though, is comfort. "It's Tuesday night," he said, "I like you to feel comfortable enough to come here when you're hungry." The Menu Though Bolsom isn't trying to change the culinary game at The Tin Angel, he is trying to realize a rare pairing of bygone comforts with forward-thinking cuisine. Menus change on a seasonal basis, giving the chefs ample opportunities to discover creative new uses for their frequently locally sourced ingredients. Such ingredients include grass-fed beef and locally grown vegetables, both of which pair perfectly with wines from around the world. A Look Inside Evidently, the values of familiarity and creativity have been applied in equal parts to the restaurant itself. Anchored by a freestanding fireplace, The Tin Angel's gently restored interior houses refurbished pub tables, brick archways, and local artwork beneath a pressed-tin ceiling that, along with much of the decor, nods to the building's historic roots. Raves "I hadn?t dined there in a while and was reminded, after an astonishing meal of salmon, rare grilled on a cedar plank with autumn root vegetable hash and black pepper beurre blanc, that dinner at The Tin Angel is not always good. Sometimes, it is great." ? The Tennessean "In a world full of no-place-specials, Tin Angel is the neighborhood bistro that Nashvillians make their own." ? Local Table "Though the restaurant is casual, it?s also hardly boring. The menu has an international flair. We ordered Codillo, a Spanish dish of hearty farro risotto topped with pork shank braised in red wine with ginger and tomato. Merely touch it with fork and it falls off the bone." ?

  • Sapphire: A Modern Restaurant and Bar
    For more than 70 years, jewels used to fill the African mahogany cases lining Sapphire's walls. The dark wooden cabinets remain, although they now brim with more than 40 kinds of vodka, Tennessee and Kentucky whiskeys, and rums from Central and South America. Sapphire may no longer drape its customers in precious gemstones, but it does aim to preserve the sense of elegant refinement that characterized the historic building for decades. This commitment is readily apparent in the menu of upscale cuisine that includes meats, cheeses, and seasonal produce from local vendors such as Sweetwater Valley Cheese, Painted Hills Beef, and John Mixon Farms. These ingredients appear throughout the selection of regionally inspired dishes, including boursin mac 'n' cheese, pimento pork bites, and almond-dusted chicken served with roasted brussels sprouts and sweet-potato gratin. On Thursday through Saturday evenings, the elegant environment in the long, narrow room becomes livelier as the night progresses and DJs begin their sets. Upbeat rhythms echo off the high ceilings and the vintage mahogany woodwork while patrons enjoy one of the martinis that earned Sapphire a spot on Metro Pulse's Best of Knoxville every year from 2011 through 2014.

  • Fox and Hound Group
    A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads. While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.

  • Slick Pig BBQ
    Barbecue is about balance, about finding the right suspension of smoky and sweet flavors even if it requires hours of labor and patience. At Slick Pig BBQ, chefs achieve flavor harmony by slow cooking and saucing up meats—which range from classic ribs to honey-barbecue wings—and then plate them with requisite sides such as corn bread, turnip greens, and mac ‘n’ cheese. They also tantalize visitors with an array of Southern staples, frying up catfish, baking chess pie, and sweetening tea by telling it how special it is.
