Fun in the City

My BFF flew into Nashville to visit me for the weekend!! This past weekend consisted of good food, good drinks, great friends, talks and lots of walking around the city.

We walked and had dinner and drinks at Chuy’s one evening. Chuy’s is a Tex-Mex style restaurant that started in Austin, TX in 1982, and finally moved it’s way up to Nashville Summer 2011.

The food is always so, so good, and the service is great!

We started off with a round of MargaritasResposado, fresh lime juice and Cointreau.

We were brought chips and salsa to munch on while we chatted, and a small dish of one of their signature sauces…creamy jalapeno.

We ordered one of the Combo meals (Beef Tex-Mex enchilada, cheese Ranchero enchilada, chicken Tomatillo enchilada, a seasoned ground sirloin crispy taco & homemade tostada chips dipped in chile con queso) and the Chicka-Chicka Boom-Boom (Freshly-roasted, hand-pulled chicken & cheese with Boom-Boom sauce, made with cheese, roasted New Mexican green chiles, tomatillos, green onions, cilantro and lime juice)

And of course, we took 3/4 of all of it home…hahaaha!

Sunday morning, we were craving brunch. We headed to TAVERN and sipped on mimosas and bloody marys. The Mimosas were made with Cava and Thatcher’s Blood Orange, a nice little twist on the original. AND it was 2×1’s!

We ordered an omelet and burger, which was a mix of ribeye and filet. Once again, it was so good and flavorful. The Local Ham & Cheese omelet was shaved smoky ham,brie, and “white trash hash.

I don’t even know what she’s doing 😉 I LOVE TAVERN! NEW FAVORITE BRUNCH SPOT!
