Sharing 15 Nations restaurants and shops that your should visit!

The Nations mural gives me all the feels. I love seeing Mr. Lee Estes looking over the neighborhood. Mr. Estes is 91-years-old and has called the Nations home since the late 1920s. Australian artist, Van Helten, created this 15-story painting of Mr. Estes and two young boys as a nod to the past and to the future of the neighborhood.

*Friday's only - Slug burger*

Being a Mississippi girl, and more importantly, my grandparents being from Corinth, MS the Slug burger is near and dear to my heart. So when one opened up right outside of the Nations I might have freaked out a bit! Stop by, or drive-through for old fashion burgers, bbq, slug burgers (Friday only) and homemade shakes!

EiO and The Hive is locally sourced and organically focused and features healthy comfort foods. As you can see in the photos below their decor (and beehive wallpaper) they have focused on not only providing beautiful food, but also a beautiful atmosphere!

As popular as Hattie B's is, it was a good call to open a second location. I'm sure I'm not the only Nation's resident that is thrilled to have one down the street! Best hot chicken in Nashville!
