For nearly five years now, Walk Eat Nashville has focused on giving our guests a broad but intimate (and always delicious) Nashville food experience, visiting top restaurants and specialty food shops with compelling stories to share.
As Nashville’s food scene continues to grow, so does our mix of Nashville’s must-eat spots. In recent months, we’ve added more of Nashville’s best eateries to our food tour lineup, introducing guests to excellent bites, beautiful buildings and fascinating people.
Here are the latest Nashville restaurants we’re so proud to call our restaurant partners.

The Farm House chef Trey Cioccia developed Black Rabbit as a nod to “old Nashville,” and in particular, the storied heyday of Printers’ Alley where it resides. On the menu, you’ll find small and large plates to share (including lots of wood-fired fare), and Prohibition Era-inspired cocktails that’ll wow folks with a love of new twists on, say, Old Fashioneds. Our Downtown Nashville food tours regularly stop at Black Rabbit.
Like walking through Downtown Nashville and accidentally wandering into a Paris patisserie or boulangerie. D’Andrews Bakery specializes in delicious desserts and sandwiches served on house-made breads. If you’re a croissant aficionado, you don’t want to leave Nashville without trying one of theirs — perfectly flaky, buttery and beautiful. Double Butter, Pain Au Chocolat, Twice Baked with cherry and pistachio jam — the D’Andrews croissant lineup hits your sweet or savory spot. Our Downtown Nashville food tours on Monday and Fridays make regular D’Andrews Bakery stops.
Set in the heart of Downtown Nashville (on the 4th floor of the Fairlane Hotel), Ellington's Mid Way excels at classic all-American fare and cocktails — think shrimp and grits, dry-aged New York strip and a pitch-perfect New Orleans Vieux Carre. Their vibe is a balanced blend of nostalgia and fresh energy — a little bit of Made Men updated for then new millennium. Guests on some of our Friday Downtown Nashville food tours stop and taste at and learn about Ellington’s.
The latest project from co-chefs Jess Benefield and Trey Burnette, also behind East Nashville’s much-loved Two Ten Jack, The Green Pheasant brings a locavore approach to Japanese culinary traditions. Super-fresh seafood, crafty twists on familiar Japanese fare (like gyoza made with chicken wings, shrimp and croissants) and both American and Japanese Wagyu beef are among the dishes you’ll find at the intimate, visually arresting restaurant. Some of our Friday Downtown Nashville food tour guests enjoy a stops here.
A little bit of French inspiration, shouting distance from the honky-tonks on Broadway. Liberty Common’s bright, fresh decor, decadent dishes and more-than-charming outdoor dining space make it a must-stop for spring and fall happy hour in Nashville — and, well, brunch and dinner all year. The kitchen excels at French classics (onion soup, house-made pâté) and Southern specialties alike (the Liberty Fried Chicken and buttermilk biscuits are both worthy of any Southerner’s attention). Our brunch-time Downtown Nashville food tour on Mondays makes a regular stop at Liberty Common.
Along with tasting exceptional bites at these exceptional Nashville restaurants, our food tour guests get to learn a slew of entertaining and educational snippets about the proprietors and the areas. We’re beyond proud to welcome these Nashville restaurants to our partner family, and we know you’ll love them as much as we do.
