Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate because it isn’t overwhelming like a major holiday, but it does remind us all to give some extra attention to the most important women in our lives.
Of course there are a million cute crafts and desserts for kids to make on Mother’s Day, but as my kids get older or if my mom is in town, I like to go do things around Nashville. This travel series is all about places that make you slow down and appreciate what is around you! My mom was always this beautiful source of comfort and care, just like these places are.
Our first stop was lunch at The Mockingbird. Nestled in the North Glutch, The Mockingbird is a relatively new restaurant on the Nashville scene. Have you ever been into a building where everything was eye catching? Well that is exactly What the Mockingbird is like. The best way I can describe it that it is a mix of The Great Gatsby, the Tate Modern and your grandmother’s house. There are modern elements of design, art deco style furnishing mixed with floral wallpaper and antique china. All that plus classic 80’s songs playing in the background makes The Mockingbird and eclectic restaurant with something for everyone to love.
Just as the decor of the building is intentionally eclectic, the menu is fashioned in the very same way. A wide variety of choices that are made from quality ingredients, but there is always a little something that makes each dish different than anything you’ve ever had like it. Brie jalapeno jam, mint in a salad, TOTCHOS and more! Each dish is a little bit familiar but also offers an element of surprise on your pallet. They even have a cocktail in a bag! If you are looking for a fun place to go with incredible food, The Mockingbird should be at the top of your list!
