I booked this restaurant in advance of our stay. The atmosphere and food were very good with an interesting open kitchen concept. You can request a table at the bar to watch the chefs.

There is a small bar area at the front of the restaurant. The only University Club I know of is at Vanderbilt University near the football stadium.
