Restaurant recomendation South of Nashville

A little over an hour south of Nashville is the University of the South at Sewanee, reputed to be the country's most beautiful college campus. To fully appreciate Sewanee, consider a stop in Murfreesboro, home of Middle Tennessee State University, posssibly the country's most bland campus. I'm not kidding; a remarkably unremarkable campus. Also in Murfreesboro is the site of the Civil War Battle of Stones River, the "Rodney Dangerfield" of battlegrounds. Here the two armies fought one of the bloodiest battles of the entire war, but in the end, it was tactically indecisive, so it never got much attention. However, the Union Generals involved wrote Lincoln and called it a massive victory, so Lincoln then issued the Emancipation Proclamation. ( a historically verifiable connection)
More people are travelling this area south of Nashville due to the proximity of Jack Daniels and other newer distilleries, including legal moonshine firms, so dinner in Murfreesboro may be a serious option for some. The best restaurant in this region is easily Five Senses.

You must understand the local nuance: Murfreesboro is considered an armpit cowtown by serious Nashvillians, so for this restaurant reviewer to admit publicly to actually consuming food in Murfreesboro is a major breakthrough and a considerable coup de grace by the Chef. I have travelled, and eaten, extensively throughout the world and I would not hesitate to take any political big wig or any CEO to this restaurant. It is highly recommended.
