905 Alarid St, Santa Fe, NM 87505, USA

1438 NE Alberta St, Portland, OR 97211, USA
Empty glasses join cleaned plates at this NE Portland brunch bar. I'm always happy to wait in the rain to find a seat in the enclosed, heated patio dining space. They peel off all the plastic and open things up when the weather gets nice, but it's...
231 Washington Ave, Santa Fe, NM 87501, USA
Since 1983, Santacafé has been a culinary destination for the chic lunch set (Tom Ford is a fan). Opt, as they do, for eclectic "classics" like crispy calamari with four-chile lime dipping sauce, shrimp and spinach dumplings with...

2506, 1808 West End Ave, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
The exterior of this Midtown lodging won’t win any design awards—the building previously housed an insurance company—but that’s what makes the art-filled, wood-accented lobby such a pleasant surprise upon arrival. With its plush leather sofas and...
402 12th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
At first pass, you might think the Station Inn is nothing special, a little dumpy even—an old cinder-block box in the heart of the shiny new condos and restaurants in The Gulch. Inside, it’s dark, with a dropped ceiling and a mishmash...
2020 Lindell Ave, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
This up-and-coming area near Greer Stadium, where the Nashville Sounds baseball team plays, holds an art crawl on the first Saturday of every month, with hours running until 11 p.m. Bounce around between several galleries in the area, but begin at...
1006 Forrest Ave, Nashville, TN 37206, USA

718 Division St, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
Chef Matt Lackey takes the farm-to-table term to heart by harvesting and bringing fresh vegetables to the restaurant from his family’s Castalian Springs property about 45 minutes from downtown. He partners with many local farmers as well to bring...
623 7th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
Third Man Records, the Nashville outpost of musician Jack White's record label and store, is hard to define. It's both a retail outlet for vinyl and offices for his label, sure, but it also includes a "novelty lounge" with coin-operated video...
