KT is back! We’ve had several requests to continue to provide a kid’s perspective on Nashville food hotspots, so we’re going to do our best to bring you new and exciting spots for dining, as well as shopping, entertainment and events…ALL GEARED TOWARDS KIDS! Since this kid-foodie’s first focus on every outing is where our meal will take place, let’s get to it…
Mom heard about this little gem on one of her favorite blogs, Style Blueprint. Their adult review said that it was a good place for kids, so we had to try it! A bit off the beaten path, we really weren’t sure where we would end up but we’re so happy to have finally found The Wild Hare! The restaurant itself is an unassuming little house on White Bridge Road, off of Charlotte Pike. You can find directions on their website. While the outside doesn’t look like a kid-friendly haven, the inside is lively, bright, and can even be entertaining. Entertaining is good when you have a 17 month old little sister who’s idea of sitting still lasts for about 45 seconds!
Mom read on the Style Blueprint blog that if you come with kids, you should ask to sit at one of the booths bordered by a chalkboard-covered wall. We did just that, and there was one still available! They provided the chalk and we all got to work on our masterpieces.
The food, you ask? Delicious. We started with a huge helping of lightly fried veggies. These aren’t your out of the box, into the fryer, kind of veggies. Mom says that they probably came from a local farmers market, were still crisp and juicy and we’re pretty sure that the cooks hand-breaded each piece. They were awesome. The sauce that came with them was a little spicy for kids, but mom loved it so much, she brought it home. Little brother had a juicy burger and fries for his main course, little sister had the home made mac and cheese, and I dined on a yummy BLT, hold the T! Mom said that her wedge salad with a Goat Cheese croquet was one of the best salads she had ever eaten!
The owner and servers were incredibly nice and beyond understanding of our, eh-hem, toddler situation. Baby sister managed to irk a few of the other patrons but the people working at The Wild Hare did everything they could to help us, including packaging up our leftovers and bringing our bill at the speed of lightening! Those two things make Mom very happy! I’d like to go back, but only if we can leave the little one behind. She’s become a little difficult to take out lately, so mom and I will have to make some girl-time lunch and dinner dates to continue our reviews!
Come visit KT often! We’ll be posting another review before you can get your kids piled into the minivan!
Yours in food,
