That’s right! April is National BLT Month and popular Nashville restaurants are putting their own unique twist on this classic sandwich staple. We’ve rounded up some of the best places to celebrate and pay tribute to an understated lunchtime favorite.
For those who like their BLT without all the frills, head to M.L.Rose for a classic composure of fresh bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado and white cheddar. Add a cage free egg and enjoy this sandwich for both lunch and breakfast!
Rather than opting for traditional bacon, L27 uses succulent pork belly to give their sandwich an added flavor and texture. Finished off with heirloom tomatoes, lettuce and chive mayo, L27’s BLT stays true to its name but is anything but basic.
The Sutler’s Big Ole BLT includes all the classic ingredients of the standard sandwich we know and love but with an extra twist. The Sutler adds another layer of meat, lean beefsteak, to give their BLT an additional height and flavor.
Mitchell Delicatessen is an East Nashville staple that only uses the highest quality, natural ingredients from local sources. Their BLT is Benton’s bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo on Silke’s hoagie. Mitchell Delicatessen’s reputation for the best sandwich in Nashville just keeps spreading.
There is nothing ordinary about the BLT with Jalapeño Bacon Pimento Cheese on wheat at Pork Belly Cafe! Located in Lennox Village, this cafe is one of Nashville’s best kept secrets.
For the true Southerner Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant offers a FRIED GREEN TOMATO BLT with crispy bacon, fried green tomatoes, lettuce, and BBQ chipotle ranch on toasted sourdough bread. But go ahead and add cheese or egg, trust me. They have five locations so there is no excuse to miss out this month!
The Nations Bar & Grill serves up a simple, yet well-executed BLT with a dab of basil pesto, giving the sandwich a fresh and herby flavor. The former auto repair shop is one of Nashville’s best neighborhood hangs.
