Two other couples , my wife and I went to Etch to celebrate birthdays. We picked Etch because the owner once owned one of my all time Nashville's favorites, Zolas. I was a little taken back while making the reservation when the young lady checked the book to make sure our reservation didn't "stress the kitchen". I now see why. The food presentation was as good as I have had in starred resturants around the world. The experience didn't stop there. The menu was interesting, because of the pairing of tastes. I had the duck with tangerine infused grits and two or three other fruits and purées. Each bit brought a new taste experience to the dish. My wife's fish was even better than mine, and my dinner rates in my top 10 ever. The price was really in line with other upscale places. The total for six including six drinks, two bottles of wine, two appetizers, four desserts, and tip was just over $70.00 per person. If you are visiting or live in Nashville, and want a great meal experience downtown I would highly recommend Etch.
