Sinema Rolls Out New Bottomless Brunch Program | NAshville Scene

Some of you young whippersnappers may not believe it, but Nashville hasn’t always been a brunch town. As opposed to now, where just about every restaurant in town offers a separate weekend menu to cater to hungover bachelorette parties and locals looking for a morning splurge, there was a time when the only special brunches were at hotels and mega buffets like New Orleans Manor or 101st Airborne.

5 to Try: You'll wish you hadn’t given these up for Lent | The Tennessean

 

Before juicing was a thing, those in the know were doing Bloody Marys. I mean, let’s not pretend people aren’t adding alcohol to their kale, banana and asparagus smoothies. It’s the only way to get some of those combos down. But the Bloody Mary combines the wholesome nutrition of tomato juice with the boss-stress reducing properties of vodka, plus vegetables as garnish.

Free bloody refills, people. Read more on The Tennessean.

248 Is Nashville's dining scene saturated? | The Tennesseean

The Nashville area has gained 490 restaurants since 2010. But how much is too much?

When Arnold Myint’s family broke into the Nashville restaurant business in the 1970s, there was no “it city” moniker, no James Beard awards and barely any food scene at all...

“About five years ago we got all this national attention with 'it city' and the TV show. I think everyone thought they could come here, put their name on a restaurant, make some investment and it was going to be a home run. Ten years ago that was the case, maybe even five years ago. Today, that is definitely not the case,” said Sam Reed of Reed Hospitality Group, which owns Sinema and decided in November to close casual seafood restaurant The Hook.
