Yumminess in Nashville

If you're a long time reader you may have noticed something conspicuously absent from yesterday's recap of Nashville. (At least minus a piece of divinity I snacked on poolside.) And since that pretty much gave it away, yes I'm talking about the food. I know you want to see pictures!
Meatloaf Sandwich
The first night at the hotel we stopped at Jack Daniel's for dinner, where I had a meatloaf sandwich with potato salad, coleslaw, and a side of pickles. It was some of the better meatloaf I've had and tasted more bbq-y than you'd normally expect.
Lemon Blueberry Pancakes
For breakfast the next morning we went to Cascade's American Cafe, where I had lemon blueberry pancakes with sausage. Such a great idea, and next time I make blueberry pancakes, I'm thinking I might be adding a little lemon to the mix.
Brisket Sandwiches & Caesar Salad
Lunch with Sarah was at the Opry Backstage Grill. I had brisket sliders (which were delicious!) and a Caesar salad.
Cabbage Salad
Dinner that night was somehow back at Jack Daniel's. (Yes, I'm still bitter about this especially since there were SO MANY other restaurants at the hotel we never got to try.) This was also probably my least favorite meal of the trip. It was a cabbage salad, but it was basically just their coleslaw with apples and walnuts on top.
Peacan Pie
But to drown my sorrows, I went with a slice of pecan pie for dessert. And that scoop of "ice cream"? Turns out it's actually a giant scoop of whipped cream, which worked out perfectly for me.
Pumpkin Spice Latte & Chocolate Croissant
Breakfast the following morning was a simple chocolate croissant with a pumpkin spice latter from Cocoa Bean.
Crab Bisque
And for the last meal of the trip it was back to Cascade's American grill for lunch, for what wound up being my favorite meal of the trip. I started with a bowl of crab bisque.
Sweet Potato Ravioli
For my main dish I had sweet potato ravioli with a brown butter sauce and a shaved fennel salad. This was by far my favorite dish of the trip, and I could have easily eaten several more plates of it.

Now that I've hopefully made you hungry, which of these dishes would you most want to try?
