Looking for a new spot for brunch? Check out one of Nashville’s most buzzed about new restaurants, Marsh House! We all know brunch is the most important meal of the day, so that’s what we enjoyed on our first trip to this Gulch hot spot.
The decor is a mix between art deco and mid century modern, and masters a hip yet comfortable and approachable vibe. Start your meal with one of their awesome house drinks and an option (or two!) from their raw bar menu. We opted for oysters and the Millwood – pineapple, rum, blackberry, lime, and prosecco. And let us recommend the best, most magical appetizer on the menu: the shrimp toast.
This dish is more complex than your average shrimp on toasty bread. It’s crunchy, warm, creamy, savory, and salty all at once. The chopped shrimp is mixed with sweet chili and black garlic on top of toast that is then either broiled or deep fried. We don’t know how they manage to make such crispy perfection!
We continued the meal with a bowl of seafood gumbo, the breakfast BLT, and a side of double fried smashed potatoes. The gumbo was just what we wanted – New Orleans style dark roux base with tons of seafood, andouille sausage, and some veggies mixed in. The BLT was stacked high with Porter Road Butcher Bacon and a fried egg then served in a pretzel croissant. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so we’ll definitely be coming back to try their other menus!
