Last Sunday, on our day off together, Steve and I had a brunch date for the first time in several weeks. Since I’d only been to Le Sel once before with some friends nearly two years ago, I figured it was time to go back and to bring him with me. Le Sel is a French brasserie located in Midtown. I love the unique Parisian decor and the contrast of bright colors and bold patterns. It makes me feel like I’ve stepped right into France (or what I imagine everything in France looks like.) Everything about it is the epitome of chic.
We started with coffee and beignets, or, what I like to call the perfect pair. Their beignets have apple butter and spiced sugar and are a gift from heaven. If you’ve been looking for a place to visit in Nashville that has beignets, look no further than Le Sell.
For our brunch entrées, Steve ordered the savory crepe with bear creek farms sausage, a sunny-side-up egg, tomato and fromage blanc. I took a taste of it myself and it was amazing.
I ordered one of the house favorites, the croque madame with country ham, gruyere, egg and mornay. You best believe I upgraded to a side of truffle fried (my all-time favorite splurge snack.) Holy flavor batman, this meal is no joke. It was everything I could’ve wanted in a brunch.
I would definitely slide Le Sel up into the top 5 places to eat brunch in Nashville. The service, location, aesthetic, and most importantly, the food are all top-notch. 10 out of 10, we’ll be back again soon.
