People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with upscale eats: for $12, you get $25 worth of upscale American fare and drinks at Whitfield’s Restaurant & Bar in West Nashville.
Whitfield’s Restaurant & Bar frees diners from the doldrums of uninspired dining with an upscale, yet comfortable ambience and a seasonally driven menu that's more mouthwatering than a dental appointment. Avoid snacking on cracker packets and aged caviar scooped from the depths of jacket pockets; tasty appetizers such as the shrimp and fried green tomatoes ($12), combined with a glass of wine such as the Cavit pinot grigio ($7.50 glass), will prime palates for a flavorful onslaught. Sounding your hunger-horn will summon specialties such as an orange-chili-glazed pork chop with sorghum and toasted-pecan mashed sweet potatoes and swiss chard ($22); the Painted Hills organic filet mignon with caramelized onion-bacon mash, parsnip frizzles, and grilled asparagus ($35); and Springer Mountain roasted chicken ($21), which struts in with its entourage of stone-ground gruyere grit soufflé, ratatouille, and mushroom sauté. For a sweet finish to the feast, the Jack Daniel's chocolate bread pudding ($7.50) adds a twist to a traditional dessert by turning it into chocolate bread pudding. Additionally, patrons can enjoy a live piano bar Wednesday through Saturday, allowing them to leave their baby grands at home with the piano sitter.
Upscale dining establishments were once accessible only to the landed gentry due to the obligatory Fabergé egg fights that occurred in lieu of dessert. Leave your gem-encrusted eggshells in the fridge and sample a smattering of savory seasonal dishes with today’s Groupon to Whitfield’s Restaurant & Bar.

The gleeful sounds of tickled ivories permeates Whitfield's Restaurant, when a piano player regales diners with masterful tunes. Other times, the live music—which takes place every night—includes a jazz band, a violin player, and more. Stepping around the curved, tile-fronted bar, the wait staff deliver dishes of seafood and steaks to diners perched in crimson booths beneath the glow of amber pendant lights. Led by owner William Dewayne Johnson and head chef Matthew Smith, the kitchen sears scallops and salmon with aplomb. Diners can choose to eat alfresco under the guard of bright-red awnings and stars blinking their choices from the menu in Morse code.
