Concierge.com's insider take:

With two bistro-style restaurants to her name, chef Margot McCormack is the Wolfgang Puck of East Nashville. She opened her namesake 80-seat eatery in East Nashville's Five Points shopping area in 2001, when few other chefs were willing to brave the rough-around-the-edges artist community. Now, Margot's rustic French- and Italian-inspired fare (braised spareribs with mashed potatoes at dinner, savory crêpes and frittatas at Sunday brunch) has an established foodie fan base. The atmosphere is warm and romantic with burnished rust-colored walls and simple wooden tables set with mismatched vintage china. It's perfect for a celebratory dinner (it's not necessarily cheap, with entrees hovering around $20). The seasonal menus are tweaked daily, incorporating the fresh produce McCormack sources locally. Her popular Slow Food dinners, which promote the use of regional foods and methods, sell out as soon as they're announced. Indeed, the restaurant fills up quickly at all meals: Make weekend reservations at least three days in advance.

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 6 to 10 pm, Sundays 11 am to 2 pm.
