Baja Burrito - Lines for lunch get long quickly at this Berry Hill burrito spot. You go through the line and pick toppings like Chipotle, but their fish tacos are like nothing you'd find at a chain restaurant.
Loveless Cafe - Loveless is a bit of a tourist trap, but it is worth having to wait over an hour with people in fanny packs. Don't fill up on the all you can eat biscuits, you'll want to save room for the hashbrown casserole.
City House - City House opened in the last year I was in Nashville. The kitchen is open, so you can see the chefs hard at work on the wood fired oven. The tripe stew and pizzas are to die for.
Virago - I know it is hard to believe that the best sushi I've ever eaten is in a land locked city in Tennessee, but it is true. Virago is my first stop every time I come to the 'ville.
Germantown Cafe - Germantown is great for lunch or dinner. I have tried for years to perfect the curry risotto that accompanies my favorite salmon dish of all time.
Bongo Java / Fido - The food matches the deliciousness of the coffee at these coffee shops in Hillsboro Village and Belmont.
Marche / Margot Cafe - Marche is Margot Cafe's casual, breakfast/lunch/dinner. Both restaurants use fresh, local ingredients with menus changing daily.
Burger Up - Burger Up is new to 12 South District, and it is delicious. I know $15, grass-fed burger restaurants are all the rage, but this one stands out against the rest.
Bombay Palace - Bombay Palace offers the best Indian food ever. I have dreams at night about their Chicken Mirachiwala.
Noshville - If you're looking for a breakfast to keep you full until dinner, look no further than Noshville.
Food Co. - Food Co. was one of my favorite lunch spots when I lived in Nashville. Nothing beats their grilled cheese and tomato soup. They have great take away frozen meals too.
