Sonobana Japanese Restaurant & Grocery
You know what they say: good things come in small strip malls. OK, we may have taken some liberties with that one. But in the case of Sonobana, it really is true. Part restaurant, part market, this Japanese spot in West Nashville serves traditional dishes - like razor-thin slices of sashimi, broiled sanma, and sukiyaki - with exquisite precision and care. Gather a group in a private room with tatami seating or post up at the bar and watch the sushi chefs in action. Before you leave, pop into the grocery store and snag a few bottles of sake and their housemade dressing to go.
