Craig and Marcia Jervis's cozy, eclectic restaurant has been a fixture in the Germantown area just north of Downtown Nashville since the late 1980s. The crunchy urban pioneering duo, who live just across the street in a charming Victorian house, were preparing locally grown and sustainably produced food long before it became trendy. Their street-corner restaurant was once a butcher shop and grocery store, and they've retained its vintage charm with bare brick walls and creaky hardwood floors. The menu features American fare and changes frequently to reflect seasonal availability; the wine selection is excellent. Sunday brunch often draws a crowd, and dining on the intimate patio in warm weather is a treat.
