👋 Adam here. I know it's been unseasonably warm lately, but I'm still clinging to one of my favorite wintertime quests: the search for the best soup in town.

The intrigue: I had a delicious bowl during a recent visit to East Nashville's Bad Idea, a wine bar that serves Lao-inspired cuisine.

  • The luscious sweet potato soup, including dollops of apple butter and black sesame oil, was my favorite restaurant meal in a long time.

The vibe: Bad Idea opened last fall in a former church sanctuary in the Five Points area. The chic design and cozy atmosphere are ideal for a date night.

  • If you're embracing "Dry February," this wine bar carries non-alcoholic options.
