Margot Cafe & Bar Restaurant Review: Chef Margot McCormack utilizes the best of Tennessee’s fields and streams to prepare the rustic but refined dishes inspired by Provence and Tuscany on her daily changing menu. This means a rabbit pizza with wild mushrooms and fresh mozzarella, smoked salmon croquettes, grilled North Carolina trout with braised kale and apples, and quail with bacon cheese grits. We could continue. There are worse places to be on lazy summer Sundays after church than on McCormack's patio, enjoying a peach Bellini and breaking through the crusty French bread that cradles your poached eggs. As for the wine list, the selections range widely around the Mediterranean, and there’s a fairly deep after-dinner drink list as well. Dessert will be simple --- think rum raisin ice cream or apple-pecan bread pudding.
