Prime 108 offers a romantic dining experience on the ground level of Union Station Hotel, a more than 110-year-old former train station located in the heart of downtown Nashville — and if a train station doesn’t quite sound dreamy, add amber-hued stained-glass windows and 22-foot ceilings to your vision. With dark wood panels, significant art, Italian blown-glass chandeliers and a tall limestone fireplace that warms the room in winter, Prime 108 is popular with travelers and local food lovers alike for intimate meals, business dinners and opulent weekend brunches (think sourdough French toast and sriracha Bloody Marys).

Executive chef Thomas Cook uses the region’s freshest ingredients to prepare a seasonal menu rife with delicacies like bourbon-smoked filet mignon and red watercress salad with Bonnie Blue Farm goat cheese, hazelnuts and shaved prosciutto. Prime crab cakes and the wild mushroom lumpia display Cook’s delicate hand, while the lavender crème brûlée finishes a meal with a light flourish.

In addition to the chef’s creations, sommelier Shelley Walker offers guests at Prime 108 her fine-tuned expertise in pairing wines, spirits and cocktails with each dish you choose. Forget scouring the comprehensive wine list (it features reds, whites, blends and bubbly from around the world), and instead, ask Shelley to recommend the perfect bottle or glass.
