NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Audrey and Locust, both located in Nashville have been named among the 50 best restaurants in the country by the New York Times.

The Restaurant List is an annual collection of NYT’s favorite restaurants in America. Each entry on the list of restaurants they “love most in 2022,” breaks down why the location stands out.

Up first for Music City on the alphabetically ranked list is Audrey.

In her summation of Audrey, Kim Severson praised Chef Sean Brock’s flagship restaurant, writing that he, “brings every bit of his culinary, intellectual and history-loving self to this restaurant, which was named for his grandmother and is dedicated to interpreting and honoring Appalachian food.”

Audrey opened in October 2021. You can learn more about the restaurant here.

Nashville’s other eatery on the list, Locust, is described as the “deceptively unassuming restaurant run by Trevor Moran…”

Locust is more than a meal, it’s an experience. “Mr. Moran or one of his merry band of chefs will coax you past the small menu and onto an exhilarating (and expensive) ride,” Severson wrote.

Locust opened in October 2020. You can learn more about the restaurant here.
