LC, my friend that's living in Nashville, recommended the most quaint, beautiful restaurant I have ever been to.
It's on the North side of the city, and you'll miss it if you don't know what you're looking for.
The Chocolate Covered Strawberry isn't on any tour guide or map, and the concierge at your hotel probably hasn't heard of it.
While it's a rather large establishment, it has managed to keep it's homey feel, and I have a feeling people are keeping it a secret for a reason- it truly is a hidden gem.
I know you'll keep the secret safe.
We walked up to a mansion, feeling like we were just stopping by a friends house for lunch.
Already amazed by the beauty of the place, we followed the signs to the hostess stand.
We then followed the leader to the back of the house, checking out all of the rooms on the way.
The place was filled with women, young and old, catching up and spilling gossip.
I opened the menu to find that everything sounded absolutely amazing.
I settled on the veggie croissant- filled with lettuce, cucumber, tomato, olives, swiss cheese and a red pepper-cream cheese spread.
I added on a creamy apple cinnamon salad served with a delicious melt-in-your-mouth gingerbread cookie.
Every sandwich is served with, of course, a chocolate covered strawberry.
My Mom went for the Smoked turkey, swiss, sweet apple hummus, & cucumber slices croissant. (Yes, that's what it's called!)
She also opted for the pasta salad and ended with a chocolate covered strawberry.
One of the front rooms is filled with one of a kind items for purchase.
The house just keeps going and going and going.
We sat allllll the way in the back of the house in a small room with all different sizes of wooden tables.
Some rooms in the house had some larger picnic style tables with big fluffy chairs, while other rooms had 'table for two' size tables and wooden chairs.
One of LC's friends described it as "very Alice in Wonderland".
It truly was a unique experience, and I absolutely cannot wait to visit again.
If you're looking for a venue for a baby or bridal shower, or just want to get together for the girls, you won't regret going to the Chocolate Covered Strawberry.
You can make reservations here.
