Spinach Tiger on Jun 16, 2013
City House owner and chef, Tandy Wilson has earned his restaurant a reputation as a Nashville restaurant that is not really Nashville because it’s Italian, but yet digs into the local farm and ingredient scene the way a true Italian restaurant in Italy would do...

It is a conundrum. Can a restaurant that has pulled pork, collard greens and catfish on the menu really be an Italian restaurant?

F&W suggests braised octopus
by Michael G.
I really enjoyed The Herbivore cocktail. Some of the best chicken I've tested around town too.
by Jarrod F.
Pork Belly pizza, add an egg on top. Yes.

Get the pork belly pizza.

Chef Tandy Wilson's rustic offerings change frequently, based on the freshest product available, and his house-cured meats are a menu highlight. [Eater 18 Member]
Get the most out of your meal here by sharing small plates â€” the thin crust mozzarella pizza and octopus with butter beans are two of our favorites.
Cool place. Slow service. Sat next to Pekka Rinne at dinner though which was pretty sweet.

Donâ€™t miss the house-cured salami and sausages or a hand-tossed pizza with belly ham. The impressive wine list, interesting craft beers and tantalizing cocktails make choosing a beverage a challenge.

Not bad! Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.

Bread gnocchi, lamb sausage, Swiss chard, Brussels sprout salad- food heaven

The bar, the bar, the bar.
Holy crap the octopus appetizer is insanely yummy. Also the Mountain-Springer half chicken.

Food & Wine tip: braised octopus
Don't ever bring a laptop in or try to study here. They will ask you to leave. Stick to the pizzas. Everything else has been so so.
Note that they cook some items in chili oil and then act surprised when you think the food is spicy. I will never go back after the mediocre (too spicy) food I ate and the bad service to boot.
by "Freshie" Beth L.
definitely get the frico and/or house cured Bresaola!

If you like a bitter finish on your cocktail, the Moose is excellent.
Snap a pic of the staff entering/exiting from the mysteriously tiny door.
Imbibe Magazine listed City House as pouring some of the Best Contemporary Cocktails in the South in their March/April 2011 Southern Issue.
