Champagne Toast at Watermark.

It's no secret among my friends and family that I absolutely love to sip champagne.

So there was no better way for my husband and I to celebrate my new blog than to grab a bottle from our bar cart at home and toast it up on the rooftop patio of Watermark, a stylish and contemporary restaurant in Nashville located in an area downtown known as The Gulch. 

Of course, no celebration is complete without good food. What I love the most about this restaurant is how the chef prepares these Southern dishes in such a creative, non-traditional way, without sacrificing their great taste.

To get us started, we ordered a stone ground grit soufflé that sat in a creamy mixture of goat cheese, smoked bacon butter sauce and shittake mushrooms. Then we had pan seared scallops served with a medley of corn and lima bean succotash in a warm bacon vinaigrette sauce, with a side of grilled asparagus.

And each dish was every bit of delicious. 

Cheers to new beginnings….
