Nashville has always been known for its flavorful, rich cuisine, and this year there were 10 restaurants that joined this tapestry of tastes with a bang. We recommend each of them for their delicious menu offerings, and some for their incredible locations.

House of Cards

Nashville (Broadway)

Perfect for a special occasion, this unique, opulent restaurant (part Twin Peaks, part Vegas) will particularly delight lovers of magic and mystery. Located under the Johnny Cash Museum, the nearly 10,000-square-foot House of Cards invokes the Art Deco period vividly.

It’s not hard to fall in love with the autumnal colors of Middle Tennessee. While some say the “best” colors pop out the third week of October into November, the changing colors are a treat no matter what time you catch them. “Leaf peeping” can be done near or far, with amazing colors lining everywhere from our neighborhood lakes to our state parks.
