The TasteBuds Do Germantown

By Melissa Corbin & Delia Jo Ramsey

Melissa Corbin and Delia Jo Ramsey here. Weโ€™re a Nashville-loving duo whoโ€™ve bonded through the last few years over a little shared grief and a lot of love for food and travel. We love great dining experiences and the people behind them.

Some of you may have received our Thanksgiving e-newsletter? That was a trial run. Here we go with the whole shebang! Give us a holler over on Instagramย @nashvillianmag, and sign up for ourย e-newsletterย if you havenโ€™t already!

So welcome to our new food-focused platform, โ€œThe TasteBuds,โ€ thanks toย The Nashvillian. The TasteBuds are a little bit salty and a little bit sweet โ€” you can decide which is which! We have been dining our way around Nashville and beyond for โ€ฆ a few decades now. Thatโ€™s a lot of fried chicken and biscuits, friends.

Weโ€™re always on the hunt for new music, too, and this monthโ€™s cover story about Joy Oladokun definitely struck a sweet chord with both of us. โ€œLoving you is a sweet symphony,โ€ she duets with Chris Stapleton on โ€œSweet Symphony,โ€ and whether youโ€™re celebrating Valentineโ€™s Day with your sweetest, your best bud, or all by yourself, February is a month when love is on the tip of our tongues, where sweetness truly abides.

Since weโ€™ve been at this for a minute, weโ€™d like to share some of our favorites, old and new, within the neighborhoods you call home. And weโ€™re startingย ย with Germantown, where the old and new collide with often delicious results!

If you need an hour of happy a little earlier, raise a stein or two atย Von Elrodโ€™s Beer Hall & Kitchen, where happy hour starts at 2 p.m. They offer something like 38 beers on tap, for goodness sakes. And any time of the day or week you can also enjoy house-smoked sausages, Southern-style barbecue, and a host of Oktoberfest-inspired eats. Come weekend brunch time, belly up for one of their Big Ass Mimosas, which comes in an enormous stein, of course!
