A few weekends ago, we took advantage of the Fourth of July holiday days off and took a trip to visit my husband's Grandmere (French grandmother) in Nashville.
It was my first trip to Music City and I really loved it.
Other than exploring and eating through the city, it was such a treat to spend time with Grandmere and learn more about her and also introduce her to other fun things in town.
We hit up quite a few culinary highlights during the trip, so I'll try to give you a snippet of each:
This is a unique ice cream chain to look up if you're in Nashville or Ohio. They've got some crazy cool flavors and mix-ins and the "scoop shops" have a very chic but homey feel.
I ordered: Cherry Lambic Sorbet and Browned Butter Almond Brittle (both amazing)
I ordered: BLT and Tomato and Fennel Soup
I ordered: North Carolina Roasted Chicken with a Pimento Cheese Grit Cake and the best Collared Greens I have ever eaten! We finished the meal with a Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie with Vanilla Gelato. (A real Southern treat.)
I bought: Georgia peaches, Strawberry Rhubarb Jam
I ordered: Ginger Phosphate (ginger soda), Falafel burger with German Potato Salad. (I would recommend getting the fries instead of potato salad as a side.)
I ordered: A delicious grapefruit gin drink (that I can't remember the name of) and a deconstructed Banana Split (pictured above)
