With Cajun-accented comfort food, Tenn16 hits paydirt in Five Points
First and Tenn by Carrington Fox | Nashville SCENE
…Crab Benedict arrived with fluffy clouds of poached egg atop plump patties of seared seafood. Delicate drizzles of smoked poblano hollandaise accented open-face English muffins, and a creamy scoop of potatoes — like the depraved spawn of hash browns and potatoes au gratin — almost upstaged the main dish.
The surprise beauty at the table was the pedestrian-sounding steak and eggs. We expected charred meat and a yellow scramble, but chef Steven Stuart had a more elegant vision. Seared to rose-red medium-rare perfection, the hanger steak was sliced on the bias and fanned elegantly alongside eggs of our choice. (Tip: Over-medium eggs provided silky yolk to push the marriage of béarnaise and potato cakes over the top.)
A sunny silken bath of sherry cream reduction put a refined twist on traditional shrimp and grits, which were loaded with andouille sausage and the trinity of onions, peppers and celery, and topped with shredded asiago cheese…. Read Full Article

Much busyness for the enterprising folks behind The Red Door and 3 Crow Bar: They have added a third to their roster of East Nasty drinking and dining establishments: Tenn Sixteen Food & Drink Co.
The casual eatery and watering hole is housed on Woodland Street — at 1016, as you might have guessed. Street number or state abbreviation (were we not the 16th to join?), its concept is Southern, with strong leanings toward Louisiana.
A breezy evening sees the huge front windows open, bringing the fall-tinged air and sidewalk bustle of Five Points into the place. Walls are painted in NOLA colors — purple, green, yellow — and hung with brightly colored paintings. Huge fans and Mardi Gras beaded chandeliers are suspended from the rafters.
Tables and booths are set with bottles of Read more
The Great Nashville Odyssey Mary Brace’s hunt for Nashville’s finest (relatively) cheap eats — and more.
Today’s heat is brought to you by a restaurant that’s new both to Nashville and the Nashville Hot Chicken scene. The Woodland Street digs (1016 — very clever, n’est ce pas?) have a New Orleans flair with open-window seating, Mardi Gras beads for chandeliers, and they’re very, very proud of their po’boys. But that’s not what induced me to sit down in the middle of East Nashville’s Tomato Art Festival.
Tenderness: 10 Wow. I’ve had quite a lot of buttermilk-induced texture since this trek began and so far, Tenn 16 has it down.
Moisture: 8 These two, tenderness and moisture are no doubt, related. Tenn 16 had plenty, although it wasn’t dripping chicken juices. An element of their coating added a little bit.
Grease: 6 But there was a little bit of that; plenty of sauce soaked into the bread below the meat.
Flavor: 8 This Nashville restaurant’s hot chicken has an element I haven’t tasted anywhere else (yet). Rather than rely on cayenne (although I’m sure there’s some) Tenn 16 uses a ginger/white pepper combo that’s distinctive without over powering the chicken itself.
Atmosphere: 10 I am a sucker for those window seats. If you are a people watcher, this is a destination spot in Nashville.
Sides: 5 The dish automatically comes with coleslaw. I didn’t think to ask for something different and, as I’m not a slaw eater, can’t tell you how Tenn 16′s ranked.

Tenn Sixteen restaurant in East Nashville has just opened with a New Orleans vibe. We say vibe, rather than theme, because it takes the best of New Orleans: funky, stylish, lively and combines it with Southern and Nashville touches for a unique approach that seems like tailor-made fun for Five Points. Sure, you’ll find lamps made of Mardi Gras beads and a few other obvious decor choices. Otherwise, the art work and feel of the place just reminds us of something you might find in the cooler parts of the French Quarter. They have a big wrap-around bar and dozens of beer choices. We can’t keep our eyes off the Read more
