Like a breath of fresh air, some spaces just exude light and energy. Good vibes only. Walking in to a space like this immediately invigorates you, shaking even the worst hangover from your droopy eyes. As if it were plucked from a sun-drenched seaside town in the summertime, you’ve found a temporary haven from any hint of inclement and unpredictable Tennessee weather lurking outside these four walls. This isn’t a plane flight away in the Hamptons or on the shores of San Diego, it’s right here in Nashville. Don’t believe it? Take a step inside A Matter of Taste Eatery to find where they hide the light.
Taking up residence amongst the several uniquely Nashvillian businesses that comprise The Shoppes on Fatherland in East Nashville, A Matter of Taste (or AMOT Eatery as it’s known) has made the healthy eating trend a tasty treat for locals. The menu is 100% Gluten Free, but even you meat and potato lovers will find hearty dishes to satisfy your tastes. AMOT may be gluten-free, but they don’t shy away from breakfast sandwiches, burgers, nachos, and filet mignon. The menu is meant to appeal to the masses, satisfying everyone from your bar food loving bro to your vegetarian yogi. Feel comfortable making AMOT your dining destination at any time of day, whether it be for brunch or a happy hour dinner. Yes, they’ve got happy hour that features food and drink specials every day of the week, including $3 mimosas and $2.50 draft beers at brunch! Contrary to popular belief, Nashvillians today have the ability to enjoy healthy options outside of the typical hot chicken plate and AMOT helps bring this healthy eating trend conveniently from the kitchen to our tummies.
AMOT features a menu that’s diverse, a brunch game that’s strong, and a happy hour that’s hip, but it’s also got a little something extra that makes the atmosphere contagious. It’s not a sports bar and it’s certainly not a dimly lit hideaway where you can barely see your food. The restaurant itself radiates with light and positivity. With encouraging messages scrawled on the wall décor, light wood and large windows throughout, and garage doors that open to a sunny patio, patrons can bask in the restaurant’s glow. It’s the perfect place to meet friends for a relaxed meal and satisfy even the biggest gluten-loving skeptic.
Whether you’re a gluten-free fanatic or you’re convinced to visit by your friends, AMOT will not disappoint. They have well balanced options for everyone that won’t leave you feeling like you need a deep fried style post-meal snooze. Park on the street and explore all that the Fatherland District has to offer, and then make AMOT your destination for a healthy meal and experience that will leave you invigorated and energized (and maybe a little mimosa-buzzed).
