What an outstanding restaurant! My wife and I went there for the first time last night and were so impressed by it, we are now calling it our favorite restaurant in Nashville. Started with the Warm Bread and Butter Board (incredible) and the Cheese Plate (homemade crackers and four different cheeses WOW!!) My wife had the Pork tenderloin and I had the Calotte Steak and both were superb. Plenty of food without overwhelming you, extremely well prepared and simply delicious. We also shared a Baked Truffle Mac and Cheese that was one of the best I have ever had. Finished off the with the strawberry shortcake and the evening was just perfect. Dewayne Johnson, the owner, stopped by the table several times to check to see how we liked our meal and Dee Dee, our server, did an absolutely wonderful job of taking care of us the whole evening! Great neighborhood feel to the restaurant, great food and great people add together for a GREAT dining experience. We will be back and often!
I've been eating at Emilanos Pizza for a while. The food now is amazing! They have new people running the store. One of the guys has worked there for a while, this guy called him Chef but all I can say, is the delivery service is fast now and the food!!!!! Wow!!!!!!!! Real improvements on already great food! Everytime I've called to place my order the guy was really polite and professional. I was watching them cook the food while I was waiting on my order and the 2 guys back there were moving so fast and were cooking everything from scratch! Chopping everything up and putting on the pizza as they got a order! This place isn't fast food it's gourmet food! I didn't know how much work they put in the food but they have crazy cooking skills! Recommend this place to anyone who wants that real Chicago/ New York style pizza! Emilanos in Antioch is the place to go!
I love this place, and have been here numerous times. They have some of the freshest sushi in Nashville, prepared however you would like it, due to their "build-your-own" sushi option, which I frequently use (I know it sounds odd, but salmon, cream cheese, strawberries, tempura crunch, and eel sauce make a fantastic combination). I have also tried many of their standard rolls. The California Uber roll is recommended, as is the Tempura and Crunchy shrimp rolls. They even have a roll that is so spicy that you have to sign a waiver to try it (I vaguely value my taste buds, so I haven't tried this yet).
