Spring Break in Nashville, con't
On Tuesday night after The Doyle and Debbie show, LS and B-I-L thought a trip to The Patterson House for bite to eat was in order.
The Patterson House is a ritzy speak-easy named after Tennessee governor Malcolm R. Patterson, who vetoed statewide prohibition in 1909. It is a house hidden in plain view, located on 1711 Division Street, a quiet road off Music Row.

Once seated we perused the menu. The hardest decision was now at hand. Which cocktail to choose. LS suggested I try the El Diablo, made with Lunazul Reposado Tequila, Lemon, House Made Ginger Syrup and Briottet Cassis. The El Diablo is one of The Patterson House top five cocktails. It is now my all time Number One!
Next came the Tapas menu. So many choices, Tater Tots with Horseradish and Dill Crème Fraiche, Black-Eyed Pea Hummus, Bacon Deviled Eggs, Shrimp Corndogs with Curried Ketchup and Mini Burgers. Again I turned to LS and B-I-L. Everything sounded delicious. B-I-L ordered the Shrimp Corndogs, Bacon Deviled Eggs and Mini Burgers. My mouth waters at the memory. The Patterson House is a must stop when in Nashville.
