The Nashville Edit team enjoyed a mid-week meal at one of the Gulch’s latest hot spots, Superica, and came away with some helpful tidbits so you can know exactly what to eat, drink, wear and expect from this Tex-Mex restaurant, owned by Nashville restaurateur, Ford Fry. (You may know him by his new Nashville staple, The Optimist).

Superica’s Fajitas Al Carbon, Cheese Enchiladas and Huevos Rancheros.
The Neighborhood:

The Gulch

The Menu:

Austin-style Tex-Mex with a twist.

The Overall Vibe:

Eclectic, lively, with music that you can hear (and will want to download)!

The Crowd:

Cool local haunt with a few tourists (due to its off-the-beaten-path downtown locale).

The Cocktail:

Ask for Tommy’s Margarita; a secret off-the-menu version of a skinny margarita.

The Dish:

Hamburguesa Superica – Their unique and delicious twist on the classic cheeseburger, adding chile con carne.

The Playlist:

Upbeat, relaxed, changes constantly. A good dose of Texas-based country and Mexican Ranchero music. The music director makes an effort to include primarily songs that are written and recorded by Nashville-based independent artists and the mix changes daily.

The Look:

Texas Modernism w/ Tex-block and vintage wood interior, in classic Southwestern color tones. A 60s-inspired outdoor patio completes the look.

The Dress Code:

“Come as you are.” Everything goes at Superica. Comfortable and extremely casual; as the night goes on, don’t be afraid to step it up a bit, but never formal.

Spotted by the Edit:

Robert Plant, Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley, Randy Travis, Kelsea Ballerini, and Florida-Georgia Line

The Take-Away:

Chef Ford Fry’s cookbook – “TEX-MEX: TRADITIONS, INNOVATIONS, AND

COMFORT FOODS FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE BORDER”
