Nashville, Tennessee is one of our favorite places to visit for a day or weekend trip. C & I were having a little cabin fever a couple of weeks ago so we took off for parts south one Saturday. The original reason for our trip was to go to the Apple Store at the Mall at Green Hills and I tacked on a few other destinations in the same mall. You got to make your trips count, don’t you know?
We also visited the Green Hills branch of the Nashville Public Library because we such huge NERDS! There is a very good reason we did that, but that’s for another post. The library was very pretty inside and out. They have a pretty fountain at the entrance and a walking path with a statue.
I have to admit we found the statue a little creepy. It is a little freaky to sit there and have the “old man” staring at you. Anywho, since we were out to have a little fun, I decided to search for a new restaurant to try in the area and kept coming back to Table 3 which is a French bistro right next to the mall. What a success!
The ambience was great and the food was even better. One of the specials that day was pork chili and I really hesitated because I thought my mind was made up to try the French dip. I decided to forgo the chili and go with my first instinct. Of course, C had the cheeseburger and "pommes frites”. (C’s statement to me: I just want fries with my burger. My statement to him: Pommes frites is fancy French for fries. You’ll be just fine.)
I went with the baby green salad with my sandwich and I was so glad I did. It was all so tasty. Enough with all the words. Here are the pics:
I think C’s look says it all: Can we just eat already?
After this, we hit the mall and there were so many stores that I wanted to check out. There are some stores that just don’t exist in Kentucky. Restoration Hardware was my first stop and the look is amazing, but the prices are ridiculous!!! One bathroom cabinet (that wasn’t even solid wood) was $2100.00! Um, no thank you and I promise not to break anything while I am here. It was neat to see the set-up, but, in my opinion, their wares are way overpriced
C & I finally made it to the Apple Store and it was a madhouse. The service was prompt and friendly and C’s errand didn’t take long at all. After the mall experience, I braved the traffic and made it to Anthropologie. This was another store that I had heard so much about and wanted badly to be impressed. They do have some neat things and I can see how food bloggers would go crazy over their selection, but, again, the prices were just a little too high to justify my purchasing things there. They also some kind of weird air freshener or candle burning which didn’t set well with C or my allergies.
We had a great time and I told C that we just experienced how the “other half” live since this is a swanky and well-off area of Nashville. I mean, I got behind a Maserati in traffic, for Pete’s sake! I think I’ll keep my Chevy.
