If you're wandering Lower Broad and have a hankering for poultry, try Acme and their Hot Chicken Sandwich with green peppercorn aioli, American cheese, and pickles, served true American-style between two slabs of white bread. Chicken's certainly not your only option, though; The menu here is divided by meat, so just take your pick of chicken, beef, pork, fish or vegetarian and you're sure to find a modern spin on a classic American dish. Pair it with an affordable cocktail or a domestic draft from their impressive list.
Situated in the former Melrose Theatre space, this trendy eatery serves New American fare and craft cocktails in a glitzy, Art Deco-inspired environs.

This sexy Indian eatery from celebrity chef Maneet Chauhan is a beloved staple in Nashville's food scene, featuring a wide selection of wines, spirits, and cocktails from all over the world and a menu combining Indian cuisine with traditional Southern dishes. Locals love their lunch and dinner menus, but we are huge fans of their brunch menu (which includes a super helpful cocktail menu labeled Sunday Brunch Hangover Cures).

Located on the bottom level of the Terrazzo building in The Gulch, this high-end steakhouse boasts a 3k-bottle wine cellar and a menu featuring wood-fired bone-in meats spiced with South American and Latin flavors. The massive chandeliers are truly works of art, but more importantly, they cast their light on plates of Chef Salvador Avila’s contemporary American cuisine that he tweaks with European and Latin American influences.

Word of advice: don't leave this place without having any hummus. It's kind of their thing.
As the name implies, Party Fowl is known for its fowl treatment, namely the classic Nashville hot chicken, served in a variety of dishes with varying heat levels for every palate -- Southern fried, mild, medium, hot, or Poultrygeist (if you think you can handle it). Try the buttermilk-brined delicacy as a po-boy, over Texas toast with beignets, on a deconstructed Cobb salad, or in its classic sandwich form with dill pickles and cole slaw. No matter your preference, the poultry-centric, hometown Gulch eatery has nearly two dozen local brews on draft to wash it down.
