Nashville Rec's

I am young professional New Orleans native visiting Nashville for a couple of days. I went to college near there and have experienced the college side of the city...now looking for a little bit more than Rock Bottom and other chains and college bars.
I have 4 meals and looking to make them all good and different:

Brunch? Not too dressy.
Best Italian Food?
Best Nashville eatery both casual and more dressy (not stuffy, looking for fun but dressy...if that makes sense).
Dessert place or truly local coffee shop/bakery?
Wouldn't mind an ethnic meal if there happens to be great Thai/Vietnamese/etc/?
Also, is there a great place to get a mint julep by any chance?

I have plans to be in Midtown/Downtown (or any neighborhood y'all would reccomend) one day and Opryland the other...would love to be reccomended to other cool neighborhoods in the city as well...I love history.

I know its touristy food but I am stuck in Opryland/Opry Mills for one meal...any recs?

I read a little about Madhatters and Germantown Cafe...any good?
