Hi, my boyfriend and I are doing a weekend getaway in Nashville the weekend after next. First visit for both of us. We're driving down from Chicago on Friday night and coming back Sunday afternoon. We are vegetarians and, as he is taking me to Alinea this weekend for my birthday, will be on a Very tight food budget when there. In all, about $100 per person for the weekend. An additoinal consideration is that we Love food and want to get as "quintessential" an experience as we can, given the previous constraints.
Firstly, should we stay at the Sheraton Music City or Sheraton Nashville Downtown, assuming the main goal is to meet our eating agenda above and hopefully hear some live (free?) music at some point too?
Secondly, after my perusing of these boards I have come up with this. Please comment!
Fri dinner - will be on the road - any southern chains we should try?
Sat brunch - Fido, Pfunky Griddle, or Loveless?
Sat dinner - Southern Bred
Sun brunch - Fido, Pfunky Griddle, or Loveless?
Sun early afternoon snack (before leaving) - Calypso cafe? Eastland cafe for cheese plate?
