you guys have posted some great lists recently recommending Nashville restaurants. Here's my twist: my mom and her friends want a couple of good but not fancy dinner spots to escape a weeklong convention for retired airline stewardesses (yes, they were called stewardesses then. And alert your single fathers/grandfathers...). No bbq because they will get plenty at the convention. No pseudo-French -- these ladies are savvy world-travelers who know their food. Don't be fooled by their ages -- these ladies all look 20 years younger than their passports -- think Betty White minus the blue rinse and granny styles. But no loud music. Oh, and they appreciate a good martini. I fear the much-recommended Miel and the like may be too tame, but they specifically rejected your Southern gems -- think healthier than fried chicken (my idea -- when in the South, eat the best of the South...). Any suggestions? Where would you go to catch up with friends? Thanks.
