Have you ever pictured yourself sipping a cappuccino with foam art on a cobblestone patio in the heart of Paris? Same, but a European vacay is a bit beyond our reach at the moment and you probably agree. You can get a whole French bistro experience at this adorable new French restaurant in Nashville without leaving the country.
Once Upon a Time in France is a tiny French-inspired bistro and cafe that just opened its doors to all the Nashville folk in mid-December.
The second you step inside this adorable, tiny 45-seat space, you'll instantly be transported to Paris in the 1920s. The keen detail and mesh of patterns make for a vintage yet elegant feel that will make you wonder if you're actually still in Music City.
The cozy atmosphere, with textured ceilings and retro black-and-white patterned floor tile, is perfect for a date night filled with fancy coffee and desserts.
It's also ideal for a catch-up session with the gals. Once you sit down, you'll never want to leave.
Let's get talking about the menu, because you'll taste some of the best and most authentic French food ever to add even more to your Paris-centric experience.
The menu changes monthly and January's selections include the classic escargots, Bœuf Bourguignon (slow-cooked beef in red wine) and Canard à l'Orange (duck with orange sauce). J'adore already.
And would it really be a true French restaurant without wine? You can sip on over 75 international wine selections as the icing on your cake for your one-day trip to France.
Don't forget to pair your après-dîner café with some dessert. Expect to find sweet treats like crêpes and crème brulée. Ooh, la la. Speaking of European confectionary, you should totally check out this all-you-can-eat chocolate festival next month.
