You should probably go to a brewery while you’re in Nashville. We like Southern Grist, not just because it's home to some of the most off-the-wall, small-batch brews in town, but also because of their in-house restaurant Lauter. When was the last time you saw bucatini with sour butter and calabrian chiles, pork and shrimp pelmeni, and fried chicken marinated in koji on the menu at your local brewery? We rest our case.
