Your server at Capitol Grille will be extremely knowledgeable about the menu at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, so feel free to ask his or her recommendation on a wine pairing that complements your meal. Executive chef Tyler Brown plays double duty as farmer at this downtown Nashville restaurant, filling the menu with seasonal dishes that feature fresh produce and grass-fed beef — so go ahead and ask which red you should sip with those braised short ribs. The Oak Bar, adjacent to the Capitol Grille, has more than 100 bottles of wine for less than $100, so there are plenty to choose from, whether you’d like a Napa cabernet sauvignon or a Spanish albariño. In the past, the Oak Bar has also offered special dessert-and-wine pairing menus, so be on the look out for those — we’re talking decadent matches like star anise ganache brownie with shiraz.
