Even though I live just about 12 miles from the glory and fame of downtown Nashville, I only end up there a couple times each year…
But last week while attending the Lexus NX Press Preview at Union Station Hotel, we car reviewers were treated to dinner at a high end restaurant called The Farm House; featuring the music of Jeff Hyde and Jeremy Spillman.
We got to ride a trolley there…
One of the things that tremendously sets The Farm House apart is that the food they offer is local. Their slogan is “local farms create local plates.”
That’s impressive, seriously!
However, The Farm House’s food truly is fresh- because the food didn’t have to travel that far to the plate.
It’s a very relevant idea that I believe will becoming more of a trend. But The Farm House is already doing it.
Perhaps the true test of how good a restaurant really is, is to have a vegan like me to do the review:
When you strip away the rich flavor of meat, eggs, and dairy from a meal, you get to really find out how good the food actually is or isn’t.
I can confirm that I was not disappointed in the least with my meal. As peculiar as it may sound, my meal was a huge bowl full of garden vegetables including potatoes, okra, tomatoes, and eggplant; varying from pickled, seasoned, and fried.
It was a complete delight! And so hearty.
(It reminded me of a month ago when I visited my parents in Alabama. They have an all organic, non-GMO garden. For a few meals during our family’s visit, we simply ate grilled garden veggies.)
For dessert at The Farm House, I had cantaloupe sherbet infused with chili powder. It was a lot of fun.
As you can see from my photo collage above, I am not the only one to say that The Farm House is a truly respectable establishment. (It was the winner of the 2014 OpenTable Diner’s Choice.)
I predict that if you end up at The Farm House, you will be pleased. I definitely was.
And if you’re curious about other stories I’ve written that feature the Lexus NX…
