Own a home in the best dining neighborhoods in Nashville


To wrap up a busy year of busy coverage, Nashville food-scene chronicle Eater Nashville asked some of Nashville’s other food gurus — including Nashville Scene and Tennessean reporters — to name the city’s best food neighborhoods.

There wasn’t unanimous consensus, necessarily — a nod to the much-improved scene in downtown Nashville, love for Melrose — but overwhelmingly, the neighborhoods the culinary pros chose probably won’t surprise you.

The best places to grab a bite and a drink in Nashville, once you tally up the responses: East Nashville and Germantown.

We spend a lot of time in both neighborhoods, and probably would’ve pointed to East Nashville and Germantown too.

About to start looking for a new home in Nashville, and prize proximity to top Nashville dining? We’re here to help: Below, homes in Nashville’s top dining neighborhoods that’ll give you quick access to top restaurants like Lockeland Table, Margot, City House and Rolf & Daughters.

3729 Baxter Ave
Nashville, TN 37216

A classic Inglewood Tudor stocked with 1930s charm, but shined up with lots of updates: refinished hardwoods, renovated baths, updated kitchen and more. If you like original details, check out the kitchen — the cabinets are still in place, with fresh paint and stainless/stone countertop upgrades surrounding them.



2202 Porter Rd
Nashville, TN 37206

A little of the best of both worlds: This nearly-new East Nashville home has classic architectural aesthetics, but a lot of the attributes buyers prize in newer homes, too, like an open layout and big bedrooms, closets and baths. (The master bath is particularly spa-like.)



1205 A 5Th Ave N
Nashville, TN 37208

It’s hard to find a more ideal Germantown location than this one, just steps from some of the neighborhood’s best restaurants, like City House, Butchertown Hall and 5th & Taylor. It’s on the cozier side, with just over 1100 square feet, 2 beds and 2 1/2 baths, but it makes good use of its space (each bed has its own full bath — ideal for roommates). Great plus for a busy neighborhood: The home comes with a private parking spot, too.

1307 Eastland Ave.
Nashville, TN 37206

Stunning renovation on this circa-1899 East Nashville home — although it looks like every inch has been freshened, none of the historic charm is lost, with tasteful details at every turn, from transoms to tile choices. Extra draw if you love an original fireplace…

718 Shelby Ave
Nashville, TN 37206

Your white picket fence and everything: This 1920 Edgefield home has been renovated completely, with classic finishes that suit its original era. In the kitchen and baths, bright white stone countertops on white shaker cabinets, warm-toned hardwoods, timeless tile choices for the showers and backsplash. The four-car carport’s a nice bonus too.



1342 Rosa L Parks Blvd., #1342
Nashville, TN 37208

Buyers looking for loft life in Nashville should always explore the historic Werthan Lofts — it has all the trademark loft details, like exposed brick and big beams, and a Germantown location convenient to all the dining/shopping Nashvillians love. This particular unit is spacious, with 3 beds and 2 1/2 baths, and top to bottom, it’s bursting with industrial loft charm.
