The Weekly Open Thread: Where Should CMA Fest Folks Eat?



This week's Scene cover story is all about CMA Music Fest: A profile of country renegade Kacey Musgraves, an interview with Brad Paisley, and a list of festival highlights.

With all these visitors wandering the streets around the riverfront, Lower Broad and the Music City Center, we thought we'd offer some dining suggestions for out-of-towners.

Here are a few of solid options within reasonable walking distance:

• Pub5Scene food critic Carrington Fox loves it, and it's home to an awesome rooftop patio.

The National Underground — home of what Scene editor Jim Ridley says is one of the best burgers he's ever had. Read Chris Chamberlain's thoughts here.

Merchants — I had a really nice lunch there a few weeks ago. Read Carrington's review here.

Rock Bottom — the rebranded Big River Grille & Brewing Works. Chris Chamberlain checked it out in April.

I'm gonna leave it there, because Bites readers, we want to hear your suggestions. What are some of your favorite spots in CMA Fest vicinity?

And what else is on your mind?
