Having some business to do just outside Nashville, we decided to spend the weekend....but not downtown.
We prefer the West End, so the Loews Vanderbilt was our choice for three nights (no weekend conventions, so we got upgraded to a lovely two room suite on the eleventh floor....that's living in sytle
on the top floor).
The Concierge Lounge is a great place to have a light breakfast (eggs benedict one morning) and a cup or two of freshly brewed Starbuck's.
Miguel and Joe are our favorite evening hosts in the lounge....they seem to always find our favorite cabernets in the back room.
A stay in the West End is never complete for us, unless we we have a casual dinner at Bound'ry http://www.pansouth.net/boundry-map.htm....the tapas are
ever changing and always interesting.
There's something special about wine and good food at "high tops" in this
subtlely lighted environment....nice mix of Vanderbilt cuties and music industry executives.......especially, when you realize there is a real tree growing up through the middle of the place.
On our second night out we decided to try a new place Miro District, just across street
from the Bound'ry
This is a great place and not easy to score a table.
As usual, we decided to hang at the bar for a couple of glasses of wine and some small plates.
The leaves are just starting to show their colors......
