Amerigo has become a special restaurant to my family. It’s where my (now) husband first introduced me to his parents on his 29th birthday; it’s where he and I celebrated the night he accepted a new job; it’s where we had our rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding just ten weeks ago. Italian food and special occasions go together, especially at Amerigo.
Yet somehow, we had missed hearing about their Farm Dinners until recently. Somewhat of a best-kept secret despite being held regularly since 2012, this monthly series allows Chef Steven Robilio the chance to create new dishes – some Italian, some not – showcasing locally-sourced ingredients.

Acme Feed & Seed has only been open for weeks, but has quickly made waves for it’s unique concept and creative cuisine. We were excited to make our way downtown to see – and taste – for ourselves. Rachael had whetted our appetite with rave reviews of the pork griot, which she sampled the weekend before at the Music City Wine + Food Festival.
We have been “supper clubbing” for two full years, and if you polled us on our favorite spots where we have gathered together in that time, there’s one meal that remains at the top of the list: the House Salad. This meal should be a pre-requisite to anyone who lives in Nashville and calls himself a “foodie.”
