Fork It Over offers grab 'n' go entrees, sides, and desserts handmade weekly for fresh, convenient meal making. The take-and-bake emporium provides pre-prepared meals perfect for individuals that are too busy to cook but want to institute regular mealtimes with their family, spouse, significant other, or bust of Frederick Douglass. Dinner for two includes two entrees and four sides ($12.50 per person), and with a new menu of four entrees and six side dishes rolled out every week, that means copious comestible combinations. Past principle plates have included chicken and ham tetrazzini, lamb curry with apples, and cumin-encrusted pot roast with sweet potatoes and parsnips. Delectable sides—such as roasted lemon-pepper brussels sprouts with parmesan, sautéed green beans with shallot butter, and broccoli with garlic—have covered entrée's flanks with steely determination and valor.
Live music fills the air every night in Sambuca 360's futuristic lounge space, urging hips to sway with strains of everything from acoustic rock to high-energy dance music. The food is equally energetic—chefs craft globally influenced entrees and small plates such as lobster enchiladas in a poblano cream sauce and tempura-fried buca beignets stuffed with mozzarella and prosciutto. Mixologists craft more than 30 creative cocktails—many of which are designed with low-calorie diets in mind—at a glowing, saffron-colored bar that touches the stage, allowing revelers to sip an agave-nectar margarita or mango-peach martini between cheered requests for the band to play a favorite tune or play in a favorite guitar tuning.
A daughter of native Sicilians, Rosa Nussbaumer started her business in 1971, infusing her creations with Italian traditions and culinary know-how gleaned from studying nutrition at the University of Tennessee. Let Rosa’s cater your next special event with cake creations such as Italian cream, red velvet, Grand Marnier orange velvet, German chocolate, and more, as well as fillings such as white-chocolate mousse, cinnamon cream cheese, mocha amaretto, and lemon raspberry. Prices vary based on flavor preferences and event size but range between $2.75 and $3.25 per serving.
A menu that never changes can never evolve. A menu that never evolves will never become self-aware and that is simply unacceptable. That's why the lineup at Daily Dish in Franklin is ever-changing. For $15, you get $30 toward a rotating cast of entree items and side dishes or the restaurant's constant salad and sandwiches selections. If you don't spend $30 on your visit, your balance will be rolled over for your next trip back. You can also use your Groupon toward a catering order.

Hog Heaven is everything you want in a barbecue place—it's a non-fussy joint with hickory-smoked barbecue and secret sauces that have won accolades from such places as Food Network and Southern Living. Both praised the eatery's Kickin' Chicken white barbecue sauce; Food Network said it made for a "heavenly bite" on the smoked pulled-turkey sandwich, and Southern Living ranked it among the South's Best Barbecue Sauces.
Patrons can order sauce-smothered, hand-pulled pork, chicken, or brisket at the window, then take their barbecue and sides to the covered screened porch area. The outdoor seating lets guests enjoy the sights of the nearby picturesque park, the smell of hickory wood smoldering on Hog Heaven's smoker, and the sounds of birds arguing about whose family recipes are better.
