On-site meals


ResoSummit offers on-site meals at Scarritt-Bennett's beautiful Susie Gray Dining Hall, as a convenient option for ResoSummit participants. There are also many restaurants within walking distance.

Meals must be ordered in advance. In October, we sent all confirmed participants in email with a link to a meals survey for your use in ordering meals for yourself and your family/friends.

Ratings of on-site meals from our 2018 survey:

In our 2018 evaluation survey, on-site meals were rated as follows (with 1=very poor, 2=poor, 3=fair, 4-good, 5-excellent):
Breakfast - 4.2
Lunch - 4.4
Dinner - 4.3
Overall value of on-site meals: 4.5

Typical comments:
"Food at the dining hall is fine. No problems, even if you have food allergies."

"Food is great at Scaritt Bennett, and you can't beat the convenience."

"I enjoy the convenience of lunch and the opportunity to sit down with the instructors and fellow students."

"I like the fact I could have the types of food that make controlling my blood sugar much easier.The Chef was very accommodating. Could not ask for more."

RestaurantsEats & Drinks Near ResoSummit

The Scarritt-Bennett (S-B) neighborhood offers many options for meals, snacks, and coffee & tea.

S-B is located between 19th and 18th Ave. South, with Edgehill on the south edge and Grand on the north edge. A short street, Scarritt Place, connects S-B on the western side (19th Ave. S.) to 21st Ave. South, where there are many restaurants. See our (outdated!) Restaurant List at right for information on nearby options; we will update this before November.

Also check out the New York Times' "36 Hours in Nashville" feature, with recommendations for restaurants and various diversions.

The "Nashville Originals" website features restaurants "dedicated to the challenge of sustaining the independent restaurant as a feature and a fixture of local culture and community." We haven't tried them all, but we like the ones we've tried.

Many of the restaurants listed at right have vegetarian & vegan options; Betty is your go-to person for advice on veggie food options. The Turnip Truck, Nashville's local natural foods market, has a location across the street from The Station Inn, offering lots of prepared food choices, including a hot food buffet table, as well as groceries — highly recommended for omnivores and vegetarians alike!!


Here are some events and diversions you or your accompanying famiy members may enjoy while you are in Nashville. As ResoSummit gets closer, we'll add to this page, and we welcome your suggestions for places or events to add.
