Nashville-Vandy q's from a solo hound

saticoy | | May 15, 2008 11:45 AM

I'm coming to Nashville on business next week by myself, and I have been combing the boards making my chow plans. If anyone reads my choices and questions and thinks I would be uncomfortable dining alone there, please pipe up...I decided against Monells, because when I'm solo, I usually read or eat at the bar.

Decided on Arnold's for the meat and three- thanks to everyone who pitched in on another post on what I should order! Gonna skip BBQ - I have enough smoked meat in my life. Definitely going to get try to get to Margot and Radius 10 or Flyte, and Fido looks great for quick and casual, but I'm staying at the Marriott near Vandy, and had some questions about the close-by options there.

Midtown Cafe - seems like the more recent posts have indicated a decline...I'd love to hear some recent reviews, because the menu looks great and it is so close! Also, besides the lemon soup, any specific rec's?

Amerigo/Valentino - Neither really look that amazing, but having Italian food so close makes me want to roll the dice. I'm leaning more towards Valentino, specifically a wild mushroom ravioli with brown butter sage and truffle oil....any comments or opther faves?Amerigo is a chain, and a couple of things on the menu makes me a little suspicious, but if anyone has a must-try dish there, I'm probably game.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
