Although Antica has not been the subject of great anticipation or speculation in local food circles, its menu holds promise. Tapas bars, much loved for their innovative snacks, cocktails and wine, are uncommon in Nashville’s dining scene.
Antica opens daily at 4:30 p.m. with a nice happy hour variation: your choice of a complementary tapa with a cocktail or glass of wine. That elongated hour, lasting until 7 p.m., easily affords the opportunity of savoring a couple, and more. The cocktail program, curated by mixologist Travis Archer, offers a balance of classics and house signatures.
They also offer entree-sized plates, chip and dip, vegetarian options, and a limited dessert selection.
It is located at 507 Main St., Nashville and open 4:30-11 p.m. Monday-Sunday.
