Carne Mare review image

Carne Mare


Two new spots opened at the W Nashville at the end of 2021: The Dutch and Carne Mare. With all due respect to The Dutch’s famous fried chicken, it’s the Italian chophouse, Carne Mare, that steals the show. It’s the kind of place to take your hip grandparents for dinner—it feels classic and timeless like a traditional steakhouse, but the dishes here are more interesting than the usual suspects. The steaks, from the wagyu to the prime rib, are fantastic, but concentrate on some of the more out-of-the-box options like the Spanish octopus and mozzarella sticks topped with caviar.

City House is an Italian restaurant in Germantown that’s nice enough to take your stuffy father-in-law to, but casual enough for your quirky aunt too.
