I was recently in Nashville for a conference for work (National School Board Association meeting with my client, the National Peanut Board).  It’s such a cool town.  I hate to be away from my family for work, but at least I get to go to fun places for dinner!


Country Music Hall of Fame and Music City Center

Merchants Restaurant is definitely that kind of cool place.  The restaurant is in a historic building on the Nashville “strip” and has an relaxed vibe.  Stocked to the gills with interesting libations, the bar has a huge cocktail list, plus local beers, and loads of wine.  The menu downstairs is simple, but interesting bar and Southern Americana, while the upstairs is pure steakhouse.
