Homeskoolin’ Restaurant Review “Nicky G’s Kitchen Downtown”

00:00 - The Kitchen Downtown
00:55 - Music room / kids playing

If you happen to live in Nashville or if you plan to visit soon you absolutely MUST check out this amazing restaurant....its called “Kitchen Downtown” in the legendary Arcade in downtown Nashville. Owned and operated by one of my best pals on this earth...Nick “NICKY G” Govrik....a hard working Hungarian who provides healthy and delicious food for very reasonable prices.

Nick was the bassist and main songwriter for Trigger Hippy, the band i played in back in the mid 10’s with Steve Gorman, Joan Osborne and Jackie Greene. You will love this place, Uncle Larry guarantees it.
