The Optimist

$$$$

A fish camp and oyster bar might not be the first thing that comes to mind in land-locked Nashville, but there’s actually some relatable history here. In 1902, high tides swept through Adams Street inundating the TD&W Handle Company building. Now, The Optimist is reclaiming the currents that once took over the building with a wide range of seafood plated up in a roomy, mid-century modern dining room. Seafood towers loaded with oysters, shrimp, tuna poke, and ceviche serve as a briny precursor to platters of red snapper en papillote and whole branzino. Before settling in for your meal, head to Jacqueline, The Optimist’s breezy outdoor bar, for frozen drinks and some light snacks.
