Located on a residential street in East Nashville, Lockeland Table feels like you’re at a dinner party at a friend’s house. The food, though, is far beyond anything you’d expect any of your friends to prepare at home. Bring someone you’d like to lock eyes with across a table in a dimly-lit space, and start with the empanadas before splitting a few entrees and a pizza. Also, make sure to order the banana foster bread pudding. Frankly, it would be rude not to.
