It's time for a spring update to the Eater 18, your answer to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?" This elite group covers the entire area, spans myriad cuisines and should offer something for every occasion or craving. Every few months, we will revisit this list and add restaurants that were omitted, have stepped up their game or were too new to be included.
For this edition, the 18 bids farewell to perennially popular Nolensville Road Mexican restaurant La Hacienda and Hillsboro Village's Pancake Pantry, where the line will never get any shorter, and welcomes some pie to the list in the form of Midtown's DeSano Pizza Bakery, as well as the already essential Husk Nashville, which celebrates its one year anniversary next month.
For those of you readying the pitchforks because your favorite restaurant isn't on the list, wouldn't it just be more productive to leave your thoughts in the comments? State your cases for (or against) restaurants in the comments or in the tipline.
