Touch and taste once existed as a single sense, until the advent of the hand buzzer led to a permanent rift between the hands and mouth. Today's Groupon reunites the savory with the sensuous in a good way: for $10, you get $20 worth of New American fare at Germantown Café in the historic Germantown neighborhood.
Accompanied by a bountiful bar and fully stocked view of the Nashville skyline, Germantown Café serves savory updates on classic American cooking. Embark on your culinary quest by sampling a starter of baked brie swaddled in phyllo dough with toasted almonds, and resting upon a blanket of fresh fruit and crostini ($9.95). Next, graduate to a plate of plum pork, a collection of marinated tenderloin medallions finished with a savory plum sauce and served over mashed potatoes and green beans ($16.99). Or sink famished fangs into the flat-iron steak, grilled to wrinkle-less perfection with crisp asparagus, mashed potatoes, and wild mushroom demi-glace ($19.95).
The café's wide windows filter plentiful sunlight upon lunchers (Monday–Saturday, 11 a.m.–2 p.m.), giving midday meals such as crab-cake sandwiches ($11.95) and tomato-basil salads ($7.95) the limelight they deserve. For fans of between meals meals, brunch (Sundays, 10:30 a.m.–2 p.m.) offers many menu favorites alongside morning-only mouthfuls of crab-cakes benedict ($12.95), shrimp and grits ($10.95), and the chef's frittata ($7.95), which is best devoured when his back is turned.
Germantown Café boasts seven Diner’s Choice Awards and a 4.4 star average from OpenTable reviewers. Sixty-five Yelpers give it an average of four stars, and TripAdvisors rank it fourth among Nashville’s 782 restaurants.
- It is a true foodie's delight with all entrees having a delightful mix of tastes. The strudel appetizer with the blue cheese sauce was a favorite at our table and the always loved fried pickles were not to be missed. – An OpenTable.com reviewer who dined on 2/13/11
- The scenery was nice, the service was fast and well paced, and the food was the best part. It has an upscale feel with moderate prices. – TheGormans, TripAdvisor
