The Farm House Fall Sunday

After a few false starts I was finally able to eat at the new restaurant in the hood, The Farm House. They have a Sunday brunch and I love a good brunch. nashBBQweekend-120-Edit

The menu has all the usual brunch suspects but with a little twist.

They didn't have a drink menu which would have been helpful. When it's the morning after the night before the brain needs a little help.  We decided to stick with the classic Bloody Mary which was good and spicy.


I went with the bacon sandwich with Duke's and a fried egg.


Mr. Ville had the Farm Burger. Something I haven't come across: the bacon was covered in a cornmeal crust which made it super crispy. The ketchup was house made and a little sweeter than your typical Heinz.


We thought the frisée was just a way to be clever but it actually was perfect for the structure of a burger.  It didn't slide around or wilt so it stayed crispy.  Who knew!


We split the biscuits and gravy which I suggest you skip.  The biscuits are a bit heavy for my taste and the gravy could have used more pepper.


Now that it's getting a bit too cold for tailgating, The Farm House is in a great location for a pre-game brunch.  I'm looking forward to trying them for dinner which my neighbors have been raving about. The menu doesn't look vegetarian friendly but they assured me that all you have to do is ask and they will be happy to whip something up for you.

We decided to take advantage of the beautiful fall day and take a stroll through the CMA prep and all the film crews for the show "Nashville" (it was a busy weekend downtown) and take in the Norman Rockwell show at the Frist.




Norman Rockwell is an American icon and seeing a lot of his work in one place shows just how prolific he was.   My favorite part was the room with all the studies from the "Murder in Mississippi" painting.  I love seeing the process an artist goes through to create a piece.  It's never as straight forward and easy as it looks.

Also showing at the Frist is 30 Americans, a collection of pieces from 30 of the most important African American artists over the last 30 years.  It's a diverse, thought provoking collection that is a must-see this winter.
