    Steak: Mortons (and you just might run into a few Titans)
    Mexican: Cinco De Mayo (god-like salsa!)
    Cuban: Back to Cuba (the main thing I miss from Fl)
    Pizza: Guidos in Cool Springs (Nashville is slim pickins for decent slices)

    Steak: Kobe Steaks (cheapest & my favorite), Fleming's, Ruth's Chris, Stoney River.
    Mexican: Jim's Nachos on Granny White... it's amazing.
    Pizza: Mellow Mushroom/Pie in the Sky... both are amazing

    There are plenty of great restaurants in Nashville, but I'm drawing a blank.

    Las americas El Salvadoran owned on nolensville rd. has great Mexican dishes plus some Central American fare like pupusas and great fish and seafood. Raw oysters in the half shell reasonable! Menudo every day. Pozole on fridays.

    Longhorn for a more moderately priced steak dinner. The original one is great on broadway.

    Ted's montana grill for burgers. Very extensive burger menu with the choice of beef or bison. The bison is a buck more. Also some bison specials like pot roast.

    Best fish(Whiting) sandwich "Oldtimers" in bordeaux. bar none! great BBQ also!

    Knock out wings for the best wings on jefferson.

    Best pizza and unpretentious southern Italian Pizza perfect on 21st across from Vandy hospital. 2 slices and a drink for just $5.99. Cheap lunch specials and pretty good pasta dishes.

    Planet Pizza here in columbia is also very good.

    China town in green hills is best chinese.

    Stoney River is where I go for nice steakout.

    Cabana is trendy with good quality food.

    Mellow Mushroom or Mafioso's is where I go for pizza.

    Gerst Haus is pretty good German, with good beer. But there quality has slipped a little.

    Virago is usually where I go for Sushi.

    Watermark is probably the best restaurant in town, with Zola right behind it. Both are pricey though, so don't go unless you're willing to drop some serious money.

    Watermark is in "the gulch," which is south of Broadway on 11th Avenue. Zola is on West End, which is what Broadway becomes south of downtown.

    Expensive steak: Ruth's Cris
    Best Burger: Rotier's
    Best Dessert: Sunset Grill or the Homemade Key Lime Pie at Rotier's
    Best Greek: Kalamata's
    Best Comfort Food: Vittles
    Best Bakery: Puffy Muffin

    Puffy Muffin is my favorite place to eat. It's in Brentwood, but worth the drive from wherever you are. It's incredible.

    Virago is fantastic, but a little Yuppie (if you don't mind).

    "The Bomb" sushi roll at Virgao is one of the best I've ever had ... and I live in New York City...

    I agree, would say the same about Cabana as well.

    A lot of good restaurants in the Vandy area.

    Sportsmen Grille has great burgers and also carries Gerst beer, which is excellent.

    Five Guys is also an awesome place for burgers... It sounds gay, but it's really good.

    It's across the street from the Whole Foods and next to the Pei Wei in Green Hills.
