Nashville knows its fried chicken, from hot-chicken shacks to classic chicken-fried chicken platters. Here are a few top spots.
Chicken-fried chicken has long been a staple on many Southern breakfast tables. At Sinema, Sunday brunch by Top Chef alum chef Dale Levitski includes an amped amped-up version topped with two sunny-side side-up eggs, slivers of red onion and bacon, and slow-roasted tomatoes. Thankfully, those embellishments only improve upon the fried cutlet, which gets a super-crunchy crust from its herb-flecked breading. Served with potato salad (and, for many, a “Mary Mary” Bloody Mary), it’s a glorified new version of the Southern staple.
