The soul-food debut from Carla Hall—the familiar bespectacled face from Top Chef and The Chew—is an ode to her hometown, Nashville, and its specialty hot chicken. From the kitchen, the TV chef issues out chicken by the piece or the plate with choice of spice level—from a mild Hoot & Honey to the extra-hot Hoot-N-Nannie—bread (buttermilk biscuit, sweet potato roll) and two sides, with options like baked macaroni and cheese, pimiento cheese with Ritz crackers and candied yams. Desserts pull from Hall’s grandmother’s recipes, like banana pudding, while beverages rep Tennessee, from beer (Yazoo Brewing Company, Blackberry Farm Brewery) to sodas (Pure Sodaworks). Along with a penny-tiled counter, wooden communal tables and exposed brick walls hung with framed recipes, the 30-seat room also features a retail hutch selling jams, sauces and brittle.
