I had never heard of The Standard and it looked like a unique place, so I snagged a Groupon they were advertising and waited for a time when my husband and I could go have a nice meal and night out on the town. The architecture was extremely fascinating. It is the oldest standing townhouse in Nashville, dating back to the 1840s. It has changed hands many times throughout the years and apparently has been taken over by the owners' son's pet project, which is an exclusive members only club with a restaurant. The dinner was really good. We had the fried green tomatoes, quail and "The Standard" steak with macaroni and cheese and asparagus. The wine choices were fair and the mixed drinks potent. The dessert left more to be desired. We ordered the cheesecake with Jack Daniel's whiskey caramel glaze and sugared pecans. It sounded yummy and wasn't bad but it was definitely from the freezer. Apparently, they tried to heat it because it was melted on the outside and cold in the middle. It was edible, but you could tell it was not homemade. When you come to a place that has gourmet meals, you would expect the dessert to be up to that standard as well. Overall we really enjoyed the meal and the live music; as well as the secluded and romantic atmosphere. After touring the townhouse, all I can say is it is an amazing place. It is like you are walking back in time.
