Words & Photography by Anthony Scarlati

Born and raised in the north of America, the fine art portrait photographer and photojournalist Anthony Scarlati now calls the south home. “With Nashville as my base I have been able to carve out a career in the music and culinary world,” he says. Whether travelling around the country with rock stars, or trying to stay out of the way in a kitchen during a dinner push, Scarlati hopes “that every image I take can capture a moment that will tell a story – and make you stop, slow down and see that moment with new eyes.”

If you’re planning a trip to Tennessee’s music-drenched capital, you couldn’t ask for a better guide. We asked Scarlati to share five places any visitor should include on their itinerary, and his answers had us googling air fares the moment they hit our inbox.

My sister and I called into 1892 on Friday 10th on our way back from Hurricane Mills. We are over in Nashville on holidays from Ireland and 1892 was highly recommended to us. My sister went for the BLT and I had the 1892 burger and they were both gorgeous. The food is fantastic, it was lovely to get a meal that felt like it was home cooked. The tastes were beautiful! We also went for some desert – the chocolate cake which was also yummy! If I’m ever back in gorgeous Leipers Fork, I will definitely call again to 1892! Thank you to Dylan also who took the time out to come chat to us. Great restaurant! – Laura Lols McElroy
