-The Unfolding- by Seth Havercamp

Nashville is white hot.  The number of new restaurants is astounding.   The “hip” menu items and artisanal cocktails that populate the landscape seem to favor a revival of the classics.   Greens, carrots, and the humble chicken.  These are the stars for which I will endure a 5:45 reservation.

Last night, I tried “Adele’s by Jonathan Waxman” on McGavock Street.  Go.

An appreciation for skill and mastery extends to more than cooking.  One of Nashville’s TREASURES is the Haynes Galleries which offers the finest and most carefully curated selection of realism paintings in the country.  I could feature 20 of their artists in this post, but since I had to choose one, I bring you Seth Haverkamp.
