It was my first time in Nashville and Rae’s was the first restaurant I stopped at and can now say, I made a good decision. The staff is friendly, knows regulars by name and order, though welcome newcomers and make recommendations upon request. Conversation is abundant here, as friends, not as staff and guests. And the food matches the service; my choice was the wicked chicken- flavorful with soft bread…so good! If you are downtown looking for lunch, Rae’s is your place.
