I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed Nashville. As someone who doesn’t listen to country music, I wasn’t really expecting much. However, it turned out to be the best couple of days and a trip that I would definitely recommend anyone travelling around America to take.

We stayed in an area called ‘Music Row’. It’s a little outside of the constant craziness of Broadway but still in walking distance so ticked all the boxes. The first thing we did when we arrived was go on the hunt for food and luckily Caviar and Bananas provided us with just what we needed. It was right en route to Centennial park. They have gluten free bread and brunch options and it really hit the spot. It also has a very cute interior and sugar free vanilla syrup to go in your coffee.

Another brunch spot I was very pleased to come across was Tavern. The huevos rancheros were divine and served with corn tortillas. What I loved about this spot was their specific gluten free menu which reassured me that there won't be any confusion with the food order. This is also a lovely spot for dinner and drinks!

I loved everything about this little spot. I got the Brussels sprouts for a starter and they were absolutely amazing. Nearly every main course dish is gluten free modifiable, including the pastas. I went for the steak and was happy with my decision to say the least. The waiter brought us down a flourless chocolate for desert and like everything else, it was perfect. We rolled home feeling very satisfied.

I could not get over the price for the feast we had at the old spaghetti factory. We had the three course meal deal which includes a set starter and desert and a main of your choice. I got the gluten free pasta in a tomato sauce with added chicken. For two three course meals and a bottle of wine, our total came to 60 dollars. Plus, it's a really sleek interior and the food was delicious.

Although there wasn't a dedicated gluten free menu at this spot, the waitress was very well informed. We just wanted a little snack with our cocktails and she brought us out some veggies and hummus. I know it was only vegetables and hummus, but it tasted so good that we had it gone in seconds. This is a really cool spot to go to for drinks. The interior is very chic and there's games to play outside along with a bowling alley!

A place that stood out to me on the crazy Broadway Street was Merchants Restaurant. We ate in the upstairs section and our meals were delicious and very good quality. I got the swordfish and the waiter was ensured that the entire dish was gluten free. This is the perfect spot if you're looking for something other than burgers and pizza on this street.

On the other hand, if pizza is what you're looking for, head to Mellow Mushroom. They have gluten free crust and endless options. Plus, they're well informed about cross contamination. They say that any pizza can be made with their gluten free crust, but mark the specific pizzas that can be made with allergy safe procedures.
Nashville is truly a unique experience and like no other city I've ever visited. If you're looking for a weekend of sheer fun, dancing and drinking definitely look into heading here. Hope you enjoyed this post! For more info on where we went and what we did you can click here to watch the vlog!
