THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Allium Restaurant Review

: This West Nashville kitchen offers a traditional, but not stuffy, French menu that includes classics such as foie gras, steak au poivre, braised duck and bouillabaisse. There’s a fresh, enterprising edge to the cooking; to wit, the foie gras comes seared with a salty crust that explodes when taken with a bite of intensely sweet preserved cherry tomatoes and onions. And not everything fits a European mold: a winter dish of risotto with country ham and greens is Southern through and through. Vegans and vegetarians will always find something on the menu to please, and servers are very attentive to special requests. Desserts are well worth the exercise, especially the deconstructed crème brûlée, with a hard sugar coating coming in a riot of sweet shards placed around a hummock of custard. The wine list is affordable rather than ambitious and offers plenty of pleasing selections with a heavy emphasis on Napa and most of France.
