Opry Backstage Grill
Fifty-year-old performance footage imparts a flickering glow over a single brave waitress, who alights a miniature version of the Grand Ole Opry's circular stage to sing a classic country ballad. Opry Backstage Grill seeks to capture the spirit of the storied country venue in every aspect, from its memorabilia-speckled interior to recipes culled from the traditions and musicians that have graced the mecca's illustrious wings. Local, sustainable meats sizzle over smoky Tennessee hickory to craft barbecue plates anointed in one of three house-made sauces, while Southern-inspired morsels of catfish, shrimp and grits, and fried green tomatoes fill mouths with more nostalgia than a postcard from their estranged baby teeth.
