This will come as no shock to those who know me, but getting me outside of my "bubble" can be a daunting task.  It isn't that I don't want to try new restaurants, I actually thoroughly enjoy trying new places, it is just the whole process of finding my way through the new neighborhoods such as the Gulch and East Nashville, that I don't frequent, figuring out where to park and letting myself relax enough to enjoy my meal...all of which I constantly use as my excuses for staying inside the -05 and -15 zip codes.  

In all honesty it doesn't take much to talk me into leaving my comfort zone as long as three key factors exist...good company, an enticing menu and, of course, a fully-functioning bar!  On Friday night I was enticed by all three when Allen, Maggie and I went to Virago in the Gulch for dinner.  We started out with drinks upstairs on the balcony with drinks of all kinds ranging from whiskey to champagne to a Bellini.  

This picture is a little blurry as I am still trying to figure out how to take night pictures and still get the amazing view, but you get the point....the view of Union Station is spectacular!

Then it was on to dinner!  Allen and Maggie opted for some sushi which was fresh and delicious while I decided to once again try the dish which includes several of the chefs picks.  All were amazing!

Pin It!
