Concierge.com's insider take:
Lime is more than just a pan-Latino bistro (a rare food hybrid in this city). Owned by the same people as sushi hot spot Virago, this midtown newcomer is the closest that Nashville gets to South Beach. Wooden slats curve up to the ceiling and glass-tiled walls glow blue in the multilevel restaurant. In warm weather, windows open garage door–style, connecting the outdoor deck to the bar area, where mix-masters whip up wild versions of classic drinks (jalapeño caipirinhas, anyone?). The food is meant for sharing: salsa samplers and dishes like the adobo tuna with large squares of sashimi-grade fish atop a bed of posole, cactus, peppers, and squash. Who's here? Vandy undergrads getting loopy on mojitos, the tragically hip music execs that hit on them, and the late-night party crowd clamoring for a table on the side patio.
Open Mondays through Fridays 4 pm to 1 am, Saturdays 5:30 pm to 3 am.
