The Mockingbird is one of the coolest looking restaurants in Nashville. From the geometric floors and ceilings to the large mirrored bird on the wall and exposed wood, it’s somewhere that’ll inspire you to start redecorating when you get home. Besides being a really nice place to hang out, this spot serves great diner-inspired dishes with names like “Rice, Rice Baby” and “Don’t Worry, Brie Happy,” and unique ingredient combos like barbacoa with parsnips and fennel, and mussels with Korean chili threads and chorizo.

That same energy spills over onto the brunch menu, where you can get a cocktail in a plastic pouch, breakfast tacos that measure a foot long, and bagel balls stuffed with gooey scallion cream cheese. It’s a brunch that doesn’t take itself too seriously—it’s the kind of place where you can let loose without worrying if you’re pronouncing “aioli” correctly.
