Casual Restaurant Deals in Nashville
Juan Reyes may have opened Salsa Puerto Rican in January, but his experience in the restaurant industry goes way beyond that. Upon visiting Nashville for the first time, Juan, who’s owned his own restaurant in Puerto Rico since 2002, noticed there wasn’t an option for authentic Puerto Rican food anywhere. And so, when he fell in love with Music City and decided to make the move, he knew he wanted to bring a little bit of home with him. And we're so very happy he did. As the first authentic Puerto Rican restaurant in Nashville, Salsa Puerto Rican and Latin Cuisine features a farm-to-table inspired menu that's loaded with fresh, local ingredients and deeply rooted in Latin flavor. From carnivorous treats like the Carne Frita (fried pork with sautéed onions) to the vegetarian-friendly Arroz Mempostiao (mixed rice with beans), there’s a little something to satisfy everyone. As far as adult beverages go, we’re happy to report that the restaurant’s authenticity extends beyond the food menu, as 75 percent of Salsa’s cocktail menu features Don Q, an authentic Puerto Rican rum only recently made available in the States (so don’t event think about asking for Bacardi). A huge parking lot (it’s free!) and sunny patio round out the awesomeness. Because really, who doesn’t like good grub, easy parking and a big ol’ dose of Vitamin D? Menu Highlights: Sorullos de maiz (Sweet Corn Fritters), $8 Herb Breaded Fried Calamari with Cilantro Aioli, $10 Caesar Salad, $7 Fricase de pollo (Chicken Stew), $16 Lemon Honey Glazed Salmon, $16 Tres Leches, $7 Carne Frita (fried pork with sautéed onions), $17 Hours: Monday - Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday & Saturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Closed Sunday

We think it’s safe to say that the folks at Shalimar, a family-owned, family-run Indian restaurant in Green Hills, are some of the nicest in town. After over 20 years in the business, they continue to greet customers with the kind of genuine enthusiasm we imagine dissipates in most restaurants after opening day. It’s that kind of hospitality coupled with dishes that are righteously executed and beautifully presented that has solidified Shalimar’s stance as Nashville’s premier destination for fine Indian cuisine. (We're not the only ones who think so, either—the restaurant has been voted Best Indian cuisine in Nashville from 2006 to 2013 by LocalEats. Not too shabby, Shalimar.) Located in Green Hills, Shalimar offers traditional Indian dishes both carnivore-friendly and vegetarian, including popular favorites like chicken tikka masala (roasted chicken in a creamy, spicy masala sauce) and shrimp jelfraze (shrimp cooked in a heady blend of Indian spices), as well as soups, appetizers and desserts. And for those new to Indian cuisine, let's just say it's more than curry, but don't take our word for it: talk to the Shalimar staff. They love guiding newbies through the menu and they’ll never once make you feel weird or embarrassed about your lack of Indian food knowledge. (Trust us, we know from experience, which is why we know Indian food is way more diverse than simple curries.) And if all that wasn't sweet enough, Shalimar's BYOB policy matches the staff's attitude: it's totally awesome—there's no corking fee. Menu Highlights: Samosa, $1.99 Garlic Masala Naan, $2.99 Vegetable Biryani, $15.99 Chicken Tikka Masala, $15.99 Lamb Korma, $16.99 Shrimp Saag, $17.99 Hours: LUNCH: Monday - Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. DINNER: Monday - Saturday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Closed Sunday
