Baylen and Parsons Dahl are part of the 100 people per day that move to Nashville. But why? What brought them here? What’s their favorite restaurant? In the second installment of my “Why I Love Nashville” The Dahl’s share what they love best about our great city.
What brought you to Nashville?
A job opportunity to work for Meritage Homes Corporation.
What is the most surprising revelation about the area?
How nice the people are here. The day-to-day engagement and friendliness of the residents of Nashville are unlike any city that we’ve lived in. From day one, we’ve felt welcomed and look forward to establishing Nashville as our home.
What is your favorite restaurant?
Urban Grub. Ask for James (tell him The Dahl’s sent you!). The food is amazing and unique, and the atmosphere is very causal. James was our server on our first visit, and we’ve requested him every time. His humor and knowledge of the menu make him our favorite.
What is a must-to-do for visitors?
Downtown Franklin, The Gulch, 12 South and Printer’s Alley. Each area is so different from each other, but all equally as fun. Cork and Cow in Franklin has great food and is small and intimate. The menu is always changing with new, exciting fare. Bar Taco in 12 South is a great place for a fun, lively, but casual lunch. The food and drinks could be the freshest in town.
Why I love Nashville
The weather, people, endless restaurants, and incredible opportunities to hear live music. Printer’s Alley is a great area for live music, without the craziness of Broadway. Also, You can never count out the Ryman, which is probably our favorite place for live music. The history and acoustics of the Mother Church are second to none and should be frequented on a regular basis by all music-loving Nashville residents.
