Nashville Downtown - Steakhouse or Italian Recs

aimeekm | Jul 9, 2012 11:29 AM

I'm coming to town on business with a couple of coworkers and need to make restaurant reservations for 2 nights. I'd appreciate a few recomendations for either Italian restaurants or Steakhouses in or very near downtown.

Now, here's the hard part; they can't be too creative or progressive but do need to be somewhat upscale. So Catbird or City House are out for example.

So far I've found:
Kayne Prime (looks perfect)
Chains (Flemings, Mortons, Ruth Chris)

Now that chains would go over fine, but I hesitate submitting a well known, high priced restaurant on my expense report. It's not about the actual prices, but more about the perception ..."Oh must be nice traveling for business, living high on the hog", if you know what I mean?

So, most likely, we'll go to Kayne's one night, then for the second night is the question. It can be either another Steakhouse, or an upscale "New American" (without too much "weird stuff" on the menu) or an upscale, traditional, red sauce Itailian.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
