Jonathan Waxman’s Guide To Nashville

Not only will we admit our love for the show Nashville and by default the city itself, but it’s no secret we’re also self-proclaimed admirers of culinary legend Jonathan Waxman. What happens when the two are combined? Awesome sauce (literally). Waxman’s new restaurant, Adele’s, opened last week in Nashville, no doubt an incredible addition to the food scene down South. Visiting soon ourselves, we asked the iconic restaurateur for all his favorite Nashville haunts. Check out this much needed guide, whether you’re a local or a visitor…
