The Moon and I waiting to be seated at Tenn16.
It was a great weekend. My in-laws came up for the play and a weekend fine dining at home, watching my daughter's play and a girl's day out in East Nashville. After visiting the Shoppes on Fatherland and Woodland, we headed over to Tenn16 for a much recommended Cajun lunch. Despite the crazy busy East Nashville crowd, we were seated fairly quickly for a late Sunday afternoon brunch. Having arrived just before the switch from brunch to the regular menu, we ordered drinks and the Deviled Egg sampler. The sweet tea was just right and the eggs were enough to keep three adult females and a child from starving after a hard day of shopping. We then placed our main course orders and that's when the review gets a little less than perfect.
We waited for our entrees and waited and waited. We ran our of sweet tea and waited and waited for refills. The restaurant had largely cleared out, so I doubt there were a lot of orders in front of ours. Finally, our food came. It was worth waiting for. My MIL's Shrimp and Grits were delicious. My daughter's hand-cut fries and BLT were tasty and substantial. My SIL and I each ordered the Blackened Catfish with Jalepeno Grits. Delicious but VERY spicy despite what the waitress said. The spiciness required more sweet tea. But, I waited and waited and waited for a refill.
My recommendation is a yes. Try this restaurant. Great vibe. Great food. Just be sure to let the waitress know up front that you like to keep your drink filled. Thumbs up for Tenn16.
