13 A Seat at the Table While Nashville has long been known for its expansive music scene, the talent of its culinary scene has also put Nashville on the map. Food & Wine highlighted the booming Music City food scene, Food Arts magazine noted the emerging culinary scene putting Nashville on the gastronomic radar and The Local Palate featured the impressively diverse culinary scene busting at the seams. Nashville s creative spirit has infiltrated its kitchens, turning them into chefs studios. From Southern fare and haute cuisine to quite literally everything in between, Nashville offers it all. For an authentic taste of Nashville, head to some of these favorite neighborhood spots such as The Pharmacy in East Nashville, Urban Grub and Edley s BBQ in 12South, Peg Leg Porker and Watermark in The Gulch, and City House and Rolf and Daughters in Germantown. Of course, the city hasn t forgotten its roots. Two popular traditions here are meat-andthree restaurants and hot chicken. Check out places like Puckett s Grocery & Restaurant, Arnold s Country Kitchen and Swett s for a quintessential meat n three experience. Nashville s most notable contribution to Southern culinary culture is hot chicken restaurants, including Hattie B s, which let you choose the heat level you prefer. While Nashville will always be Music City, it s clear that the talent in the city extends far beyond music and into a burgeoning culinary scene that is worth a visit all on its own.
