Nashville has opened up yet another beautiful boutique hotel. Dream Hotel sits at 210 4th Ave N, in the heart of downtown Nashville. And has multiple luxurious locations including, Miami, New York City, Maldives, Qatar and India. The luxury hotel finally opened its doors Last Thursday, and we were invited for their soft grand opening to view the interior and try out their food and specialty drinks in Stateside Kitchen.
The lobby of the hotel held a very chic speakeasy type of vibe and their main restaurant was hidden between a quaint cafe and other private rooms for seating. The main restaurant, Stateside Kitchen opens up to a beautiful spacious room with high ceilings that are completely clear, making you able to at the stars. It includes a massive rap -around bar and eclectic styles and sizes of booths.
During Friends & Family night, executive chef Michael Kopfman and his team provided a menu with a wide range of food selections. Luckily, we were given the chance to try everything on the menu for free.
The menu consisted of a selection of sushi, including three rolls, pressed sushi, nigiri and sashimi platters featuring yellowtail, shrimp, salmon, and more.
Starters range from cheese and crab dip, deviled eggs, and shrimp cocktail. The crab dip is the best that I have had in any Nashville restaurant. The presentation was immaculate and it came with a fresh roll of toasted bread. I honestly, cannot stop thinking about how good the crab dip was.
Next on the menu were sandwiches and salads. You can find seared tuna salad, a smoked chicken salad for those on a health kick, a cheese burger and an amazing turkey reuben.
Entrees at Stateside Kitchen include Seared Salmon, prawn pasta, and a wide range of steaks. Or for those who really want to take on a challenge, the menu consists of A 48-ounce Bear Creek tomahawk serves two for $150, served with grilled asparagus, black-eyed peas, and creole potatoes.
Stateside Kitchen is open from Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. Reservations are available online at https://www.dreamhotels.com/nashville/dining-en.html or by phone 615.622.0500
