Nashville- The Farmhouse

My family rolled into town just in time for dinner Friday night at The Farmhouse.  This classic farm-to-table restaurant is a Nashville hot spot focused on southern style cuisine using modern cooking techniques.  We began with an order of Deviled Eggs, the usual mayo/mustard interior mixed with chopped ham and smoked salt.

A Farm Plate of crisp green beans, zucchini, carrots followed with some ridiculously delicious smoked Gouda grits...

...and a big bowl of Charred Creamed Corn that may have been my father's favorite dish of the night.

Hot Chicken with biscuit puree and warm potato salad was the entree of choice for most of the table.

I loved the crisp candied skin on the outside of this bird.  It would unfortunately be the only hot chicken we experienced in Nashville...something I would be sure to fix on a return trip.

Golden brown cornbread arrived piping hot with a side of steens butter; a surprisingly sweet butter that tasted of sea salt and caramel.  Then it was onto dessert with a Blueberry Brown Butter Pie topped with roasted white chocolate ice cream and blueberry jam...

...and Skillet Plum Upside Down Cake with bourbon butterscotch sauce and brown sugar bourbon ice cream. 

It was quite a farm-to-table feast that affirmed my love of all things brown sugar and bourbon.   I could barely move after our meal.  We had packed in a TON of food in for one day in Nashville...time for a serious nap.
