Germantown Travel Guide


If you’re after Nashville’s best dining, look no further than Germantown. A historic neighborhood that has seen a boom in development and growth over the last decade, Germantown is home to several of the city’s best loved and most acclaimed restaurants, as well as high-end shopping and destinations for sports fans and history buffs alike. The neighborhood itself is a sight to behold, with classic row houses, brick sidewalks, and a tree canopy that makes you forget you’re a stone’s throw from Downtown. James Beard Award–winning chef Tandy Wilson’s restaurant City House is a cornerstone of the neighborhood, beloved for its rustic, Southern take on Italian food. Wilson recently opened a new restaurant, Mop/Broom Mess Hall, just a couple of blocks from City House, where his elevated take on Southern comfort food is not to be missed. Germantown is dotted with local boutiques and coffee shops, making it the ideal destination for a leisurely afternoon after time spent at the nearby, newly reopened Tennessee State Museum or before a Sounds minor league baseball game at First Tennessee Park.
