Nearly Native Eats: 5th & Taylor

The elusive date night. Whether it’s a first date with a new boo or a standard time carved out for you and your betrothed to fuel that 10-year-old relationship flame, the date night is not to be taken lightly. This is an ages-old romantic ritual after all. You could go for your trusty default casual neighborhood spot that makes a regular appearance in your date night rotation. Or maybe that stuffy, absurdly priced multi-course meal that might leave your stomach as empty as your wallet, but it’s fancy and impressive, right? Instead, consider venturing to a chic new spot with just the right amount of affordable ambience and intimacy. 5th & Taylor is a place where comfort and class coexist, satisfying your date and your taste buds without entirely breaking the bank.ft1 copy

Located in the heart of Germantown, 5th & Taylor opened is street-styled, modern American warehouse doors earlier in 2015 to excited anticipation and almost instant rave reviews. What was once just another large empty building in this emerging Nashville neighborhood is now trending towards the top of many locals’ must-visit dining lists. Taking a step inside these warehouse walls removes the honky tonk hustle of the Music City, replacing it with cool tunes, warm candlelight, and conversation. There’s no need for distracting televisions when patrons are focused on the camaraderie of passed plates and easy dialogue. 5th & Taylor strives to make you feel as if you’re stepping into someone’s home, with a comfortable lounge area flowing into the main dining room and offset patio with a beautifully lit fountain as its centerpiece. Beyond the welcoming and contemporary atmosphere that emanates from its every corner, 5th & Taylor serves up a pretty substantial menu.
