Flyte World Dining & Wine is a unique culinary experience. Flyte's Executive Chef Matthew Lackey incorporates local produce, free-range meats and beautiful presentations into a truly seasonal, farm-to-table menu featuring the best of Tennessee's independent farms. Flyte's knowledgeable staff can help you navigate the eclectic wine list and craft beer selection (or you can choose a pre-set wine or beer Flyte). There's even a 20-seat Kitchen Dining Room where you can dine in the midst of the action. Flyte's focus on service and hospitality is evident in personal touches from the moment you make a reservation until you conclude your evening. The restaurant interior is lively, colorful and beautifully lit to provide the perfect setting to your Dining & Wine adventure and the diverse music is handpicked by the staff. $35 3-course "Local Flyte" available any time (selections vary day to day). Happy Hour from 4:30 to 7:00 in the lounge everyday!<br />

"Everything about Flyte was fantastic - great food, too many fabulous choices, fresh, fresh, fresh ingredients (I even ordered dessert, I generally don't like desserts, these were more savory than sweet). Great wine list, well organized, easy to follow. Amazing service, I usually don't care to know my server's name but in this case my wife and I were very impressed with Todd and so, remember his name. He was extremely knowledgeable, knew every aspect of the menu, right down to spices, flavors, tastes, etc., which was most helpful. He knew the wine list and, even though I know wines, his knowledge and recommendation was right-on. Rarely have my wife and I been so impressed with a restaurant. Despite not living in Nashville, we will be back."

Located in the century old Hermitage Hotel, the commitment to preservation continues in the Capitol Grille and Oak Bar. Relaxed, low key, and known as the place for Nashvillians “in the know”, the Capitol Grille is inspired by cultural sustainability. That is, preserving the past while using techniques of the present. Our commitment to using local food extends beyond just sourcing local. The ingredients are grown at the farm at Glen Leven, located just 5 miles from the Capitol Grille by Executive Chef and Farmer Tyler Brown. Brown creates a menu that shifts with the seasons, is inspired by what is the freshest and best available, and pays homage to historic Southern cuisine. The Capitol Grille actively supports and is involved with Share Our Strength, an organization whose mission is to end childhood hunger by 2015, the Chef’s Move to Schools program, as well as the Southern Foodways Alliance. <br />

"The food was delicious, well prepared and well presented - trout was fresh and excellent, I had sable fish that was also delicious, Caesar salad also very good (great anchovies). The cheese platter was wonderful, three cheeses, breads/crackers, and accompaniments, however one of the cheeses was too ammoniated for me - they reduced the cost of the plate accordingly. Service on the other had was not very good. Our waiter, obviously new was reading the specials from a note pad, he forgot about our wine (a white, kept on ice, but not at our table so we couldn't pour, not that we should have to) and we had to remind him to refill our glasses; after opening the wine he put the cork on my bread-butter plate. We will definitely eat here again."

<br />Free Car Service provided by Uber for all midtown and downtown. Call for scheduling or mention while making reservations.<br /><br />We know the word "fusion" has been wielded to justify everything from Hula Burgers to Mexican lasagna. But the East-meets-South brand of fusion happening at Poor Calvin's? It's creative; it's innovative; and it's probably unlike anything you've tasted in the ATL. After working in kitchens around the world, Calvin Phan wanted to shake things up a little. And so, into the mac 'n cheese, the Thai spices went. Now, Calvin's giving Southern staples, like sea bass and fried chicken, a decidedly creative Asian-inspired twist (and a nip of spice, too). We didn't think good old-fashioned mac 'n cheese could get much better. And then, we tried Calvin's ridiculously rich take on the cheesy classic, gussied up with chunks of lobster and given a zing with Thai spices.

"What a great surprise. We were looking for an interesting brunch menu (since my wife does not eat eggs) and we certainly found it at Poor Calvin's. The menu was wonderfully creative and the food excellent. There were so many great choices it was difficult to decide. We loved everything we ate (and drank) - fusion food based upon Southern and Thai. Very original and very delicious. Our waitress was wonderful, extremely personable and friendly and she made some great suggestions. We can't wait to go back!"

"We always enjoy Woodfire Grill. The food is consistently original and delicious. This time we had a set 5th of July barbeque menu and it was wonderful. The menu was original and the food great."

"Brunch got off to a poor start - the restaurant was closed when we arrived, bartender did not show up, kitchen staff was eating in full view and when they noticed we were able to see into their hideout they closed the door (made us wonder if they washed hands between eating and cooking), no one knew had to mix a Bloody Mary. We didn't want to order until we were able to get our drinks so that cause a hassle. Finally another manager arrived and was able to resolve all the issues and we ordered brunch. The brunch menu was varied and offered may good alternatives, especially since my wife does not eat eggs. The food was very good and service improved tremendously once the staff got started. We will be back."

Hecho en Dumbo began in as a pop-up operating several nights a week out of a local café in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Chef Danny Mena's menu of antojitos, or "little cravings," features refined rustic Mexican staples and contemporary Mexico City cuisine. Derived from the official "Hecho en Mexico" seal, the restaurant's name speaks to the authenticity of the cuisine, the local sourcing of organic and sustainable ingredients, and the degree to which fundamental components of Mexican gastronomy – breads, tortillas, salsas, and even cheeses – are made fresh in-house. In a broader sense, the aim of Hecho en Dumbo is to celebrate the contemporary, cosmopolitan culture (and counter culture) of Mexico's vibrant urban centers.

"Disappointing! We've dined here before, including tasting menu in kitchen-this was one of our favorites. We arrived to an empty restaurant but the greater refused to seat us until our party was complete. We wanted to order drinks and food while we waited but were denied a table (there was only 1 table occupied!). Whenour party arrived we were allowed into the dining room. Food was good but portions absurdly small. Three tiny tacos each the size of a silver dollar on an otherwise empty plate. Hint: charge $1 more and fill out the plate with beans, rice, or even chopped lettuce just for presentation. The consensus of our party is no one will go back!"

With its rustic décor, lush flower arrangements and romantic ambiance, dinners are easily transported to the warmth of the French country side the moment they walk through the door. <br /><br />In late Spring, Summer, and early Fall, one can dine outside at the sidewalk café. In true French style, the terrace is lined with flowers echoing the romance of La Mangeoire’s interior. <br /><br />La Mangeoire offers 3 uniquely decorated dining rooms for private gatherings. Two of these rooms provide intimate settings for business meetings or small social gatherings. For larger celebrations, such as bridal or baby showers, prenuptial dinners, engagement, wedding and anniversary parties, the restaurant can accommodate up to 60 guests

"Always consistently excellent food. The list of bests at La Mangeoire goes on and on. Scallops were absolutely amazing, but the lobster sauce was incredible. Soup du jour, cold tomato with basil was fantastic. A must everytime we are in New York!"

Family-owned, Spanish restaurant, and gem of the UES, El Porron prides itself with serving classic and signature tapas in a casual elegant setting. An endless menu of perfect portions leaves your palate begging for more. With a wine list equally as impressive and just as much a part of the program as the cuisine, Mr. G and his son Diego Bermeo front of the house Manager/Wine Director will make you feel like you have slipped away to San Sebastian from the first bite to the last sip.

"Very good tapas, especially the daily specials. Very good selection of Spanish wines. Good paella with lots of seafood but not enough crust on the rice."

"Wonderfully creative food. Everything we ate was imaginative, well presented and delicious. Great menu. Our only complaint was the very tiny tables that made it difficult to mange food, drinks and wine. Also one of our chairs was gashed and stuffing exposed making sitting somewhat uncomfortable. This, however, will not deter us from returning for the wonderfully creative and delicious food."
