Sipping cream is the American answer to Irish creams, and a Nashville-local chef (Deb Paquette) has helped local distillers Jeff and Jenny Pennington introduce one stellar example of this liquor cream to the national market! Jeff and Jenny reportedly developed the idea for Whisper Creek after their honeymoon, and the project has been so successful that in the local liquor and epicurean circles they are considered the 'Romeo and Juliet' of the industry. Deb helped to ensure that the whiskey's flavour profile remained unique and truly Southern. Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream is a Tennessee Whiskey cream liqueur that embodies all the deliciously familiar characteristics of a Charcoal Mellowed Tennessee Whiskey softened by the subtle whispers of real

Visiting Nashville? Or maybe just wanting to expand your list of go-to restaurants? Consider visiting one of these new Nashville restaurants!

The Stone Fox

If local music and local ingredients are as important to you as a risotto is to an Italian, then grab your Radiohead t-shirt and head over to The Stone Fox (our solid #2!) on the west side of town. The Stone Fox seems to be a throwback neighborhood hangout, where hackeysack, plaid overshirts, and all-denim outfits make the most accurate re-creation of the ‘90s that you’re ever likely to see again. In terms of the menu, the proprietors of the Stone Fox advertise their focus well: good, local ingredients. It doesn’t get much more local than growing your own ingredients right behind the building,

Barista Parlour

Yes – if you awaken any time of day hungry, sleepy and wishing for some inspiration (and food) to revive that tired version of yourself, this place can surely feed your soul. From the caffeine and the warmly rustic wood decor, to the vinyl spinning in the corner (yes, they change sides/records every time it stops), every decision at Barista Parlor has been made with so much thought, I can’t help but appreciate the hell out of it. Any eatery where the environment is as delicious as the edibles is a restaurant that's good for the soul. 

If you prefer a baguette to a biscuit, you might order the Southern Frenchman: Ham, Swiss, Eggs, Paprika and Jam. And because you’re indulgent (you’re French, right?) you may as well top it off with a French Macaroon, Jam

This southern city is still becoming a famous and well-loved "it" town! It's more than the honky-tonks, the celebrities, the amazing food, and nationally renowned artisans, but the city's overall atmosphere of positivity and friendliness. Even the New York Times has featured Nashville as an up-and- coming city time and again, lauding Music City for its atmosphere, affordability, food, and music.

Local officials have spent a (still growing!) total of $623 million on a new downtown convention center, one of the most expensive public works projects in the history of Tennessee. Other efforts to revitalize and modern downtown include the addition of Google Fiber, and a renewed interest in its housing prices. Even Trulia listed Nashville as a market to watch
