Much-admired and trail-blazing Chef Deb Paquette changed downtown’s culinary environment almost immediately upon the fall 2012 opening of her restaurant Etch. Located on the ground floor of the Encore tower, Etch’s open kitchen beckons a view of carefully constructed, globally influenced dishes that are a Paquette trademark.
Full bar. Serving lunch 11 am-2 pm Mon-Fri, dinner 4:30-10 pm Mon-Thu, 4:30-10:30 pm Fri-Sat. Closed Sun. Bar opens at 4 pm. Happy hour food and drink specials 4-6:30 pm Mon-Fri, 4-5:30 pm Sat.
MUST EATS: Butter tasting, Etch salad, lamb and duck entrees
“Etch is chef Deb Paquette, and she is Nashville. From the tip of Gibraltar, around to Italy, Greece and back to Morocco, Paquette conjures the exotic flavors and spices of that region better than any chef in town.”
— Jim Myers, The Tennessean, “Top 25 Restaurants in Nashville,” June 21, 2016
