Reese hangs out in the Village
Did you know that Reese Witherspoon is from Nashville? Yup, she’s a Harpeth Hall girl and everything. Reese’s ‘rents still live here.
So Reese comes back to Nashville often, sometimes with the kids and hubby, sometimes not.
She was spotted just last week at Cabana nightspot in Hillsboro Village, a trendy hipster kinda place. She was in town to showcase her new film, “The Good Lie,” which premiered across the Village at Belcourt Theatre.
Luke and Hayden hit super-trendy Sinema – but not together
Yes, Luke Bryan and “Nashville” TV show star Hayden Panettiere both had dinner at the same time recently at uber-trendy Sinema restaurant.
They were, however, at separate tables. And they both probably had the best meals of their lives!
After all, this Sinema restaurant – converted from an old-school movie theater landmark in Nashville – is getting almost as much press attention as Luke and Hayden.
The space is gorgeous – giant portraits of old-time movie stars hang on exposed brick above lush velvet-covered booths. Diners feel like stars themselves.
Heck, there’s even a celebrity in the kitchen. The chef is Dale Levitski, runner up on season three of Bravo’s “Top Chef.”
And the food? Each dish is a production, not just, say, “dinner.”
The pork chop presentation: Cauliflower Puree, Roasted Apples, Rainbow Chard, Root Beer Demi Glace. Ah yes, just like I do it at home….
That Luke really gets around, I tell ya
After Luke was spotted at Sinema, another fan saw him eating at the Cool Springs location (about 20 minutes south of downtown Nashville) of BrickTop’s, a terrific regional chain with only eight locations in Tennessee, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, and Georgia.
Here’s my slightly odd menu pick: It’s the best ahi tuna burger I’ve ever had. OK, I haven’t had that many ahi tuna burgers.
But it’s so delicious that, given the choice between it and a regular burger, I go ahi tuna every time I’m there.
All the seafood is fresh and tasty.
And it’s kinda cool when Luke Bryan is sitting next to you no matter what you order, right?
Go rest high on that reuben – It’s Vince Gill at Noshville
It’s no coincidence that the name Vince Gill rhymes with Noshville.
The guy is at the Noshville deli, like, really often. I’m not gonna say every day.
But it was no surprise when Brad spies saw Vince at the Green Hills location again last week.
If you’re visiting Nashville from New York, Cleveland or any other deli/salted meats capital of the world, stop into a Noshville if you’re homesick.
