Food About Town #2
Puckett's Grocery and Restaurant: This local hangout has three locations, and the nights with live music require reservations! Duke and I were able to grab dinner there, and it was delicious. I love the decor and ambience at the location in the heart of downtown Franklin. We highly recommend the BBQ.
Bar Louie: This Gulch spot was great for a working lunch! I had some sliders, but I think the appetizers were the best... loaded tater tots and warm pretzels with dipping sauces. I really liked their drink menu though, so I need to get back there for an evening sometime.
Saffire: I went here for lunch with my friend Stephanie, which is more casual than dinner at this restaurant in Franklin's famous The Factory building, but I couldn't get over how good it was!
Whiskey Kitchen: I've heard nothing about good things about this place, and I LOVED the cocktails I tasted there during a recent work happy hour in the Gulch. I thought my Basil-Berry Lemonade was fantastic, and I tasted my friend's delicious Blackberry Bellini. We also ordered appetizers, which were delicious. The place was packed, even early on a weekday, so that tells you something.
Verago: We went to Verago for dinner after drinks at Whiskey Kitchen. I'm not a huge sushi fan, but this place was awesome. I had the Korean BBQ Roll, which I loved! There's plenty of options and fusion for those who aren't into sushi, and there are both raw and cooked sushi options available. I think it would be the perfect place for a girls' dinner out or date night.
