The Standard is one of the finer choices for dining in downtown Nashville. It's found in The Smith House, which is the final remaining grand townhouse in Nashville. The building was created in the 1840s and provides plenty of history.
It was restored in 2005 and served as a residence before becoming a restaurant. Originally, it was just a side project for the owners, but turned into an award-winning restaurant with one of the top private clubs in the city. The Robb Report Magazine even named The Standard Club as one of the "Top 5 Private Cigar Clubs in the US." Here's what you can expect at The Standard.
As the winner of the Diner's Choice Award from OpenTable in 2014, The Standard has plenty of fine options for dinner on the menu. Some of the favorites include:
- Lump Crab Bisque
- Fried Green Tomatoes
- "The Standard Filet"
- Bacon Wrapped "Bacon"
- Sea Bass Meniere
- Leaders Choice Grilled Rack of Lamb
- USDA Prime New York Strip
- USDA Prime Tomahawk Steak
- USDA Prime Bone in Rib-eye
- And More!
They also serve exotic game, which varies depending on the time of year.
For dessert, you can enjoy The Standard Chocolate Mousse Cake, The Standard Club Half Baked Cookie with Vanilla Bean Ice cream or the Jack Daniel's Cheese Cake. All three options are quite delicious and made in house.
The Private Club
The major draw for many is the private club found at The Standard. It's very similar to the way The Standard Club was 110 years ago and includes a diverse membership. Men and Women are welcome to join and enjoy hand-rolled cigars, fine wine, great food and plenty of socialization.
Members enjoy VIP treatment with an exclusive wine locker and cigar box. They can use the private meeting rooms for their parties and enjoy monthly events only for members. Two black tie events are held yearly for members, as well.
Location and Hours
The Standard restaurant is located at 167 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard in Nashville. The restaurant is open to the public for dinner from 5pm to 9pm, Monday through Thursday and from 5pm to 10p on Friday and Saturday.
