Park Café, Nashville

4403 Murphy Road
Nashville , Tennessee
Tel: 615 383 4409's insider take:

Tucked into what was once a private home, this local favorite in Sylvan Park feels intimate and warm. This may have something to do with the arrangement of tables, which flow through the house, taking advantage of various nooks and crannies. (Try to ignore the garish paintings and concentrate on how lovely your date looks in the soft lighting.) The bistro fare references Italian, Southern, and Asian flavors: pork chops with sesame sweet potato hash and a hoisin barbecue sauce, grilled shrimp with saffron risotto. Don't get too distracted by the food or you'll miss the country stars that often populate the dining room (Dolly Parton drops in regularly for the green chile mac and cheese). Young music-business professionals fill the front bar during happy hour.

Open Mondays through Thursdays 5 to 10 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 5 to 11 pm.
