Featuring: Urban Flats

It's been so long since I've written a where to eat post! I love finding a new great place to drink and dine, who doesn't? This gem is located in Nashville, Tennessee. I was immediately drawn to Urban Flats, I loved the simple yet sophisticated decor and vibes coming from the restaurant. The menu is versatile and guarantees something for everyone - they have a fabulous wine list which they categorize by aromas and boldness of flavor for those who are never sure which bottle to choose. Their selection of authentic flatbreads is incredible, from the traditional to the funky combinations. (Of course, I chose a funky combination... and it was SO good, shown in the photo below.) The staff is super nice and made sure we were 100% satisfied. The dim lighting around dinner-time and the great music gives the place a really chic feeling. I ordered...

yellowfin tuna "poke" - soo fresh, melt-in-your-mouth kind of dish. I could have finished five plates of this by myself, literally.

My funky flat combo: Fig & Prosciutto, paired with blue cheese, mozzarella cheese and chives. The combination of these flavors was something so unique and so good, I never thought I'd be able to eat an entire flatbread of fig or blue cheese but this dish proved me wrong.

Yum Yum Scallops with fresh veggies.

And we obviously had to get dessert. The Molten Chocolate Lava Cake... need I say more??


Stop in Urban Flats for a glass of wine and some awesome food if you're visiting Nashville. Right downtown in the Gulch. P: (615) 254.0454. They also have a bunch of locations in Florida & one in Georgia. More info on their website here.
