I had the great pleasure of checking out the grand opening of Pinewood Social yesterday, Nashville's latest, greatest addition to the foodie scene. If you're in or around Nashville or planning a trip here anytime soon put it on your list of must visits. For starters, the atmosphere is killer…very Nashville-esque.
Since I knew the background of Josh Habiger, the chef who developed the menu (and previously worked at critically acclaimed restaurants like Alinea and The Catbird Seat), I had extremely high expectations for the food. Long story short, it did not disappoint.
Their coffee bar is run by my favorite local haunt, Crema, so I went with my standard order of a delicious hot Cuban coffee (so tasty).
I ordered the lobster roll for lunch and whoa. It was incredible…so, so fresh! The menu is extensive and surprisingly affordable. I can't wait to go back and try a few other things, though I'll be hard pressed not to get the lobster roll again. They're open very early to very late (7am-1am…pretty incredible, right?) so I'm hoping to get in for a brunch sometime in the very near future.
As if all that wasn't enough, Pinewood Social offers a few other bonuses the rest of Nashville will be hard pressed to compete with…one of which is this in house re-claimed bowling alley! Come summer, they'll have a pool, cabanas, bocce ball court and all kinds of other goodies. I told you- it's a gem. For reservations, call 615-751-8111…I've got a feeling it's about to get real busy so get to dialing!
