Folk—A New Classy Neapolitan Pie Comes to East Nashville

One of our favorite Nashville restaurants is the chicly-delicious Rolf and Daughters in the Germantown district near downtown. It was therefore with great anticipation that Mrs. Pie and I could not wait to hit Folk, a new upscale Neapolitan pizza place from the R&D chef. So, we made our way there one evening for an […]

Mr. T’s Pizza and Ice Cream – Maybe I Should Have Had the Ice Cream?

The Pizza Snob sees every road trip as an opportunity to try some new pizza. It’s a thrill that I enjoy like it was my birthday. This road trip was to see Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit in concert at the lovely Tivoli Theater just a few hours down the interstate from Nashville in […]

Emmy Squared – Brooklyn’s Detroit-Styled Square Slice Comes to Nashville’s Gulch

Earlier this year, the Snob reported on the entry of Night Train Pizza to the close proximity of Nashville’s trendy, but mostly touristy, area known as The Gulch.

Lockeland Table—East Nashville Gourmet Restaurant Makes a Great Pizza

One of the Pizza Snob’s unwritten rules is to only blog about places that specialize in pizza. I therefore typically exclude places where pie is merely a sideline to their main menu. I recently made an exception for East Nashville’s Lockeland Table after getting repeated reports about how good their pizza is. The occasion was […]

UPDATE: Nick’s Italian Deli and Pizzeria in Franklin, TN Quietly Calls It Quits

Someone recently brought to my attention that Nick’s Italian Deli and Pizzeria in my hometown of Franklin had shut down for good. Not much of a fan of their pizza, nor were they on any of my local pizza bud’s radar, it was not surprising that I missed this old news. Word is that the […]
