This is one of those rare eateries that receive top marks in every category, from its seen-and-be-seen clientele to the lush furnishings to the exquisite fare making it one of the best Nashville restaurants. In the lower level of the century-old Hermitage Hotel, the biggest surprises at the Capitol Grille (no relation to the chain of steakhouses by the same name) come in the form of its side dishes and starters, whether it’s the sweet onion bisque or the to-die-for macaroni and cheese. Be sure to take a peek into the men’s room adjacent to the restaurant; its green-and-black-tiled magnificence has been used for music videos, photo shoots and more. Ladies, knock first. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner; lunch and dinner reservations recommended.
