Nashville gems

Union Station
One of downtown Nashville's gems is Union Station, which is also the Wyndham Grand Hotel. It is located next door to the Frist Center, the Flying Saucer, and just blocks away from both the Gulch and Lower Broad. If you haven't made a visit to the Union Station lobby, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it is. It is fairly small so it is "cozy," as far as elaborately detailed train stations go. They have renovated the hotel and refreshed the paint so that it looks like a modern, yet still vintage hang. A great place to take visitors for a photo opp! I love the eclectic collection of chairs.

What struck me today was the hotel's restaurant menu that was posted in the lobby. A $$$ restaurant, Prime 108, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

"The signature menu is derived from the finest products available including organic vegetables, hormone free meats, and sustainable seafood."
Way to go, Wyndham. Maybe we'll hit that on a future date night!
