Butcher & Bee
Butcher & Bee had already made a name for itself after dominating the Charleston market as a destination sandwich shop on a less-desirable stretch of King Street. So it came as no surprise when the second location opened in a comparable area of Nashville, a place that bears many similarities to the Holy City (particularly in the dining realm). In spite of the light foot traffic on Main St., Butcher & Bee came out the gate swinging, ready to make its mark on the town. At nearly triple the size of the South Carolina flagshp, the new location—which debuted in early 2016—has more than enough space to accommodate hungry diners who gravitate to its delightful interior, open kitchen, cozy booths, and farm-driven menu with an array of Middle Eastern-inspired snacks, sandwiches, and soups. It's hard to go wrong at this foodie haven, but if you can only pick one thing, order the creamy butternut squash soup—it's more the consistency of a custard and, simply put, divine.
