Noshville is in midtown Nashville, not too far away from Vanderbilt University, and a bunch of big hotels that support Vanderbilt and the Vanderbilt Medical Center. Noshville's theme is about the NOSH - a Yiddish word for snack or to eat a small meal, as long as you think a turkey platter full of food is a small meal. The plates of food here are huge, and include all the kosher favorites like pastrami, corned beef, and beef tongue. They also have lightly pickled dill pickles. They also serve breakfast items like corned beef hash, potato pancakes (latkes), eggs etc, but I have never had breakfast here.
One night I really wanted pastrami. I wanted hand sliced Pastrami with extra fat like you get at Katz Deli. Well, in Nashville, we can't get that. So, I settled for machine cut pastrami without the fat. I also wanted potato pancakes. And Noshville in Nashville has a sandwich that is a PPPLT, a Potato Pancake Pastrami Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich. It was surprisingly good, and it satisfied all that I yearned to nosh. The potato pancakes were crispy on the outside, and the lettuce gave a freshness to the heaviness of the fried potatoes and the pastrami. It was a well conceived sandwich by Noshville. I think they should patent the sandwich, so that all the other restaurants who make it have to call it the Noshville.
