Our clients know that we have high standards for the type of food we eat and recommend. It is hard enough to find decent offerings on most menus–so when we see a restaurant that we feel is doing a great job, we want to bring it to your attention.
The Silly Goose in East Nashville is just such a restaurant. We love that The Silly Goose strives to find local, organic, sustainably produced, minimally manipulated food. They are all about high quality ingredients and so are we. Some of their suppliers include Delvin Farms, Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese, Noble Springs Dairy, and Provence Breads.
They have so many great options, even sans pork (since we don’t do pork) and it is always hard to pick, but here is a sampling:
Roasted almond couscous, sundried tomatoes, lemon,
sage, red pep. goat cheese, and grilled port. mushrooms
organic quinoa, sweet potatoes, dry, cherries, pistachios,
grilled onions, manchego, carmelized orange vinaigrette
Baby greens, avocado, shaved fennel, tart apple
pumpkin seeds, and a chili-grapefruit vinaigrette.
Roasted beets, goats milk feta, sweet onion jam, local
arugula, sherry garlic vinaigrette, flatbread crackers
Smoked salmon, honey black pepper goat cheese,
caramelized onion, baby arugula on toasted marble rye
Grilled eggplant, roasted red pepper, avocado, basil,
arugula, lemon-kalamata olive aioli on grilled ciabatta
Citrus, Mint, and Ginger Green Tea
Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere is great as well. The decor is earthy and rustic, with distressed tables and mason jars–yet at the same time it is very clean and tidy with a modern touch, provided by the metal chairs and red chairs that pop in color. So if you get a chance, head over to The Silly Goose and you won’t be disappointed.
