Simply put, The Catbird Seat is one of the most exciting restaurants in Nashville. Every night offers a different menu and experience, and you never quite know what you’re going to get. The process is simple: book a reservation (a definite requirement - seatings book out months in advance), make your way to the horseshoe-shaped table, and watch as the chef and his team churn out plates from a fixed menu aimed at leaving you speechless. You might start off with soused Japanese sardines and wind up with a mouthful of pig’s blood fried pie. The anticipation is almost as delicious as the dishes themselves.
