Past Meetup

Wild Iris - Brentwood's Favorite Neighborhood Restaurant close to Maryland Farms


I posted their menu as of November at the bottom of the event until the website it back up. Please contact me with any questions as I go there all the time.

Wild Iris calls itself Brentwood’s favorite neighborhood restaurant. "Over the years, Wild Iris has bloomed into a sexy and food driven restaurant with a menu, wine list and full bar that appeals to all crowds." I've had two meetups there, and everyone enjoyed the dining experience. I love their cheese plate and fried green tomatoes. Wild Iris is towards the end of a shopping complex right off Franklin Road on your right driving down from Nashville. Exit off I-65 onto Old Hickory to the right and make a left onto Franklin at the intersection. If you see Puffy Muffin, you've gone too far. I'm scheduling this meetup early at 5 since I am going to see Yo-Yo Ma at the Symphony later.

Their website wasn't working a moment ago but here it is as I assume it will be back up soon. I called just now to make the reservation. Website & menu:

Wild Iris' phone is 615-370-0871. Derek's cell phone is 615-202-4756 if you don't spot us or are running late.

When you rsvp yes for a meetup, we ask that you attend or change your rsvp to “no” no later than 24 hours prior to the event. This will allow an opportunity for other members to make a reservation/move from the waiting list to going or allow the event host to call the restaurant and lower the reservation number if necessary. If a member habitually doesn’t attend a reservation or cancels a few hours before the meetup which hurts the chances of others to attend, we may have to remove that member from the group. We also ask that members are courteous to staff at the restaurants we frequent to ensure our group will be welcomed back. Thanks!
