My family recently took a group to 219 Broad Street Mixed Cuisine in Murfreesboro.
Have you ever heard of it? Probably not, as it is not located in one of the city’s main trade corridors.
But it should not be neglected.
Formerly known as Gondolier, the restaurant changed hands in August 2018 and was renamed 219 Broad Street Mixed Cuisine.
The name is derived from the street address, 219 NW Broad St., and its varied menu. If you have a picky eater or can’t agree on what type of food to eat, 219 Broad Street may be the solution. It’s cliché but true – there is something for everyone.
On the menu
Here you will find all your favorite pub-style appetizers, traditional American cuisine, a wide selection of Asian dishes, Italian cuisine, a full service bar (with happy hour) and a sushi bar.
Lasagna? They have it. Homemade pizza and calzones? Yeah. Chicken wings and burgers? To verify. Handmade pad Thai, pho and eggrolls? Check mark.
Our table got a sample of the menu.
Spring rolls are perfect, with a flavorful flaky crust filled with chicken and vegetables. A friend’s mother sometimes made us homemade spring rolls, and these are like hers. The combo appetizer platter gave us the opportunity to try some of the other fried favorites.
The house special – beef, pepperoni, ham, sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, onions and cheese – was a crush. Some of us liked it while others weren’t inspired. I think it comes from the crust. 219’s is a thin, hand-thrown crust. But I’m an opportunist and enjoyed the leftovers for breakfast the next day.
The stir-fry with chicken and veg was good but very basic and suited the picky eaters at our table well.
In my opinion, the best thing for 219 Broad Street is sushi. Everything is handmade, made to order. This is not a fast food sushi.
My son is the sushi demon, although his sister and I like him a lot too. Everything we ordered was fresh, high quality, and nicely plated. And the prices are cheaper than the grocery store sushi (gasp).
And on Tuesday, the regular sushi rolls are $ 5 and two regular rolls are $ 8.99 on Wednesdays.
The prices for the rest of the menu items are also very reasonable in my opinion. Most meals range from $ 10 to $ 15.
Make sure to save room for dessert. Apparently there is a real baker in the kitchen. A display case in the front highlights beautiful cakes, pies and sweets that look almost too pretty to eat. But, they are quite edible and delicious.
The restaurant is also a perfect place for large parties – like ours – and group gatherings, with a separate room that can be closed. Catering is also available.
You can find the restaurant on Facebook or dial 615-396-8484. Online ordering is available on the website, 219broadstreetmixedcuisine.com. For more details or catering information, you can also email [email protected]
