What’s the first thing you think of when you think about the Green Hills neighborhood? Most people come here for the shopping, but don’t forget about the many restaurants Green Hills Nashville, TN offers to visitors. When you’re ready for a break from the long lines and high prices in downtown, check out one of these delicious eateries in Green Hills!

Whether you’re a big fan of foodie accounts or you secretly judge people who post pics of their food, you’re going to feel an urge to open your camera app at Etc Restaurant. Brunch is the best meal to eat/photograph at this Green Hills eatery, thanks to menu options like squash waffles, pork belly biscuits, and spicy chicken eggs benedict.

Etc Restaurant has an upscale vibe, and it’s rarely as crowded as some of the other popular brunch hotspots in town. If you’re looking for a nice, quiet place to enjoy brunch with a friend or your parents, Etc Restaurant is the spot.

Of all the restaurants Green Hills Nashville, TN has to offer, this might be the most quirky. The first thing you’ll notice upon entering Firefly Grille is the crazy decor. It kind of feels like you’re walking into your eccentric grandma’s house, if your grandma also served some of the best food in Nashville.

This city isn’t known for its seafood, but Firefly Grille serves a delicious seafood salad with shrimp, crab, and salmon. We’ve also heard good things about the duck, which is served on a bed of potato puree, honey-glazed broccoli, and wild rice. No matter what you order, you’ll never run out of conversation topics thanks to the fun, festive atmosphere inside Firefly Grille.

Here we have one of the better fast-casual restaurants Green Hills Nashville, TN has to offer. Next time you’re looking for a quick lunch, skip the chains and try this local favorite. Food Company specializes in soups and sandwiches, but they also serve salads, casseroles, and a well-reviewed fruit tea punch.

If you’re vegetarian or you find yourself grabbing lunch with someone who is, bring them to Food Company for the veggie sandwich. Unlike most vegetarian sandwiches, this one is chock full of ingredients including cucumber, avocados, cheese, sprouts, and plenty more.

If you know The Bluebird Cafe at all, it’s probably because you heard that this is the music venue where Taylor Swift was discovered. She played here as a teenager, just like many other country music stars who went on to do great things. Although The Bluebird Cafe is known more for its musical acts than its cuisine, we can confidently recommend the BLT, the chicken fingers, and the chicken salad club.

If you decide to go, try to get there early around 3:30 or 4:00 on the day of the show. You’ll have to stand in line to get tickets, and the line can get long fast. People who miss out on early tickets can come back later around 6:30 to try and score some of the open seating options. This is an intimate venue with extremely limited seating, so make sure you plan out your night ahead of time.

Wednesday night is burger night at Table 3, which means burgers are only $5! With all the money you’re saving on burgers, you can also order a cheese plate for your table. This is a French bistro and market, so they know what they’re doing when it comes to fancy cheeses.

Table 3 is perfect for relaxed dinners and lunches, as it’s usually quiet and has super comfortable seating. The wait staff is also known for being attentive, so you should be able to squeeze in a quick bite before catching a movie at Regal Green Hills Stadium.

This neighborhood has an underrated dining scene, which is just one of many reasons we love living here! If you’re interested in moving to the neighborhood, we’d love to give you a quick tour of Vertis Green Hills luxury apartments. Feel free to swing by or schedule a tour online! Until then, enjoy one of the many restaurants Green Hills Nashville, TN has to offer.

Is shopping your middle name? Do you constantly love to change up your decor or wardrobe? Even though our city is often known for music, don’t overlook the incredible shopping destinations that are popping up near our new apartments in Nashville. Here is a look at some of the top-rated clothing boutiques, malls, and home furnishing stores that carry both name brand products and hard-to-find items.

If you’re a Nashville newcomer, you’ll probably want to make your new home feel as Southern as possible. There’s no better place to find pieces with Southern charm than at White’s Mercantile.

This popular store is owned by Hank William’s daughter, Holly Williams, and she knows what she’s doing when it comes to men’s and women’s clothing and home goods.

White’s Mercantile has a number of Nashville-made items too. It has the feel of a small town general store, but the style of a big city boutique. Be sure to take your out-of-town friends to this place so they can pick up a souvenir or two before they leave the city.

This denim shop is unique in that it sits inside of what used to be an auto shop. Don’t let the exterior fool you though because there’s nothing but style inside Imogene and Willie. This boutique gives off a high-end feel without being pretentious, which makes this one of the most welcoming Nashville shopping destinations.

Check this place out if you’re looking for American-made jeans that fit just right. The friendly staff at Imogene and Willie will even make quick alterations for you, so you can walk out of the store knowing you just bought your new favorite pair of jeans.

If you’re looking for clothes that you simply cannot find anywhere else, check out Billy Reid. This men’s boutique only carries their own brand of long-lasting clothes and accessories. Billy Reid himself is a well-known designer in fashion circles, and he’s been featured in magazines like Women’s Wear Daily and Esquire.

There’s no better feeling than buying a piece that will be a part of your wardrobe for years to come. High-quality clothes are hard to come by these days, which is why we recommend the durable, long-lasting styles of Billy Reid.

Ask around, and you’ll hear nothing but rave reviews about the staff at Lizard Thicket Boutique. This is the perfect store for people who love shopping but need a little guidance when it comes to finding their perfect style.

This Green Hills boutique offers high-quality clothing at department store prices. Shopping is no fun when you have to put all your clothes back on the rack after checking the price tags, but you won’t have that problem at Lizard Thicket Boutique. It’s hard to beat the selection at this up-and-coming Nashville shopping hot spot, as they carry everything from seasonal dresses to chic accessories and even trendy athletic wear.

The Mall at Green Hills is a bright, naturally-lit space that has plenty of high-end department stores and boutiques. Walking through this mall is a delight thanks to the glass atrium that lets sunlight in from above. This place is clean, well-managed, and it even has a movie theatre for you to enjoy after a long day of shopping. With its convenient location and easy-to-navigate parking garage, this shopping center offers a far more enjoyable experience than your average mall.

All shopped out? We know shopping can be tiring so stop in, show us your finds, and relax on a tour of your new home at Vertis Green Hills. Give us a call today or schedule a tour online. We’d be happy to show you around some of the luxury apartment homes and penthouses in our brand new community.
