The Catbird Seat
- Takes Reservations
This tiny restaurant above Patterson House only holds 22 seats (they’re all at the bar), and serves an intimate tasting menu that’s given it a reputation that extends far beyond the city of Nashville. Recently anointed Executive Chef Ryan Poli is actually the third chef in the establishment’s relatively short history, and while that many regime changes might seem like a red flag, it’s actually just an indication that the place has continued to improve—Poli’s pedigree includes French Laundry, Blue Stone Barn, and, most recently, Noma. This is a must-visit for foodies.
