Mere Bulles. French Name...with a Southern Fare

Mere Bulles, which translates to "Mother Bubbles," is a great restaurant which can be found in Brentwood, TN. Mere Bulles is a wonderful place for brunch, lunch and dinner. In addition, it is a great place to throw parties, as well. Here you will find friendly service and fabulous food!

First of all, I am going to talk about Mere Bulles Brunch. Every Sunday from 11:30 AM-2:30 PM, Mere Bulles offers a fantastic Sunday Brunch. Out of all the places in Nashville to have Brunch, I think Mere Bulles is the best, because they offer unique selections rather than sticking with the "typical" Sunday Brunch routine. They offer an extensive fresh salad bar with any topping you can think of, including pasta salad, fruit salad, etc. Also, they offer their famous She Crab Soup (which is a MUST). It is such a wonderful soup...do try it! Then, they have Crème Brulee French Toast!! And it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Another unique item that contributes to the buffet is the fried green tomato eggs benedict. You know you are in the South when they serve eggs benedict over fried green tomatoes. Sometimes they serve mini pulled BBQ pork sandwiches, as well. You don't see these on a buffet too often. And of course, you cannot have a buffet without an omelet station, waffle station; apple smoked bacon, farm fresh sausage, roasted pork loin, fresh veggies and sides, roasted potatoes, and blackened gulf grouper. I think (of course) my favorite part of the entire buffet is the chocolate station. Here, you can dip donut holes, pretzels, strawberries or pound cake into chocolate...this is a choco-holics dream come true. They also offer various brownies and other desserts as well. If you haven't already, I would suggest trying out Mere Bulles Sunday Buffet. You will not be disappointed!

If you work in Brentwood, TN, Mere Bulles is a nice place to take a break a grab a bite to eat. Also, it is a great place to impress clients, as well. My favorite appetizers there are the spinach dip served with tortilla chips and tomato and brie bruschetta (grilled Tuscan buschetta, tomato basil pesto, sliced brie topped with fresh parmesan cheese). The calamari is very tasty, as well. And as a stated earlier, She crab bisque is A MUST. Do not leave Mere Bulles without it!

During lunch, my favorite salads are the salmon spinach salad with blue cheese crumbles, spiced walnuts, strawberry-mango salsa, and strawberry vinaigrette. Also, they have a great fried chicken salad that is very delicious. The Ahi tuna salad is another great choice, especially if you are trying to watch what you eat.

They have many entrees to choose from, but they are famous for their Shrimp and grits, which are fabulous! If you have worked yourself up an appetite, try the Florentine chicken (grilled chicken, fresh mozzarella, classic marinara, sautéed spinach and parmesan cheese). Also, the have great fish tacos, but be careful they are a little greasy.

My favorite part of the lunch menu is the sandwich section. I must say that people really enjoy the rib rolls (my brother's favorite). These rib rolls consist of shaved prime rib, cheddar & Monterey jack cheese, horseradish cream sauce and au jus. If you're a first timer, I would definitely give these a try! My favorites are the Mahi-Mahi sandwich (grilled Mahi with avocado relish on a sweet tasting brioche bun) and the salmon BLT (grilled salmon filet, chipotle aioli, bacon, lettuce and tomato). My dad loves the turkey and brie sandwich. This sandwich has fresh turkey, sliced brie, mayo, cranberry au jus, on sourdough toast. Watch out with this sandwich it is huge...but very good! My husband loves the California chicken sandwich on a croissant. This sandwich comes with grilled chicken, ham, bacon, marinara mayo, Monterey jack cheese, onion and tomato (they should have named this sandwich "Everything But the Kitchen Sink)! Another other unique sandwich item is the chicken & spinach crepe (grilled chicken, spinach, Swiss cheese, red onion, Dijon mustard, marinara, and parmesan cheese). If you go during lunch and the weather is nice, Mere Bulles has a beautiful patio, where you can sit outside and enjoy the weather. In addition, Mere Bulles delivers lunch as well. If you are planning a meeting and you want lunch delivered you can call and put your order in ahead of time and they will bring lunch to you. They are very prompt with their delivery and professional.

If you want to know of a great "date night" spot Mere Bulles is the place. It has a wonderful dinner menu with items such as filet mingnon, shrimp and grits, herb stuffed chicken. I have only had dinner once and I got the shrimp and grits. My husband had the filet which was delicious. Many menu items on the dinner menu are found on the lunch menu as well. 

I love Mere Bulles, because it has such a diversified menu. Mere Bulles offers food that you cannot find anywhere else in the Nashville area. Everyone that works there is very friendly.
