Cheeks are having their moment, In this case, charbroiled yellowtail cheeks at this buzzy little East Nashville Japanese eaterie.  How pretty is this dish? At first you don’t know whether you should eat it or steer it! Get your chopsticks and dig in. Crispy on the outside, tender and moist in its middle, each delicate bite asking to be dunked in a sweet ponzu sauce. Umami alert. Nashville is plenty more than hot chicken and country music. Find out here.
