THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ombi Restaurant Review

: Chef-owners Kim Totzke and Laura Wilson have kept a strong momentum going since the restaurant's debut, thanks partly to extra-late hours on weekends and firmly mid-range prices for top-shelf dishes. The menu supplies a carnal hedonist's dream: pork belly, marrow, sweetbreads---and a foie gras-stuffed burger that practically dares you to order it. But the fare isn't always so heavy. Entrées are tethered to the seasons, so in winter you may savor duck cassoulet with white beans and bacon. Salads are few but daring, as in the assembly of frisée with house-cured bacon and a quail egg. The bar's skill with such classics as the Sazerac and sidecar, plus its innovation with house-infused spirits and craft whiskeys, is unmatched in Nashville. In terms of wine, the list has a bit of everything; a stout grounding in old-world varietals is frilled with a few bold selections. Most bottles are under $50, though there's room to spread your wings and let a few bills fly if you so choose. All of this loaded into a small shotgun space near Vanderbilt University makes for a formidable package.
