In Part 8 of the Fidel Gastro Travel series Matt Basile visits Nashville. While many know Nashville to be the birthplace of country music it also has a vibrant and inspired restaurant scene featuring some of the best food you could ever get your hands on.

Matt starts the video off by shooting a selfie with a giant Nashville wall painting behind him and then points out a Taylor Swift education center with a hilarious look on his face. He explores Nashville proper and then stops right outside the city on Highway 100 at the Loveless Cafe. The Loveless Cafe is a rare restaurant due to the fact that regardless of how much time passes it remains true to its origins. It doesn’t matter if you came there in 1977 or 2009 you got true southern comfort food. The lifeblood of this institution is to serve food that embodies a time when people ate what was indigenous to the area where they lived. This was before there were super highways and phones smart enough to run your entire household for you. The rural South was a remote area with back-roads leading to treasures known only to those brave enough to venture down them. The Loveless has always been one of those treasures. Matt has what looks to be a delicious meal there and then heads down the road.

His next stop is Martin’s Bar-B-Que joint. Martin’s has been featured on the Food Network, the Travel Channel, the Cooking Channel, and The Today Show. It’s also been mentioned in publications such as Bon Appetit, Esquire, Conde Nast Traveler, and Men’s Journal. That alone is a pretty impressive resume for any restaurant. West Tennessee’s well known whole-hog BBQ tradition is the cornerstone of Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint and has been since its inception. The owner of the establishment, Pat Martin, opened his first BBQ Joint in 2006 and now has expanded to a total of four locations including one in downtown Nashville itself. Matt has two gigantic pieces of meat along with bread, a salad, and some macaroni. He seems to be quite pleased with the BBQ, as would be expected. Matt is a major fan of most anything you can BBQ.

His next meal is at Butcher & Bee, a restaurant that will be featured in his upcoming cookbook due to its deep ties to brunch culture. He had never eaten there before so going in he really wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. If the food on the table in the video is any indicator at all though Butcher & Bee is actually quite serious about brunch. A member of the staff takes some time out to sit down with Matt and talk the food over with him personally. Matt takes notes and then moves directly on to sampling all the delicious looking dishes in front of him.

As Matt begins his departure from Nashville he has nothing but the very best things to say about the city. He specifically mentioned how incredibly nice everyone he met was. If you happen to be in the area don’t skip out on a visit to Nashville.
