Go inside Dino's in Nashville to see how the hip dive bar makes its hangover-curing "Damn Sandwich."
Today marks the launch of Food & Wine's Around the World Network, a new video series produced by our community of food-obsessed influencers across the globe. For this week's dispatch, we take you to Nashville for an insider tour of the city's best best places to eat, drink and shop. It's hosted by the project's curator, #breakfastclub founder Emily Elyse Miller of Trends on Trends.
Her first stop is Dino's. "Nashville's Oldest Dive Bar" reopened last year with new owners who know the local food scene: Miranda Whitcomb Pontes and Alex Wendkos. They let the beloved space be, but upgraded the menu with new cult classics including the Damn Sandwich. Watch the clip above to see how this hangover cure is made and find out more about Miller and her connection to the city, below.
