Playing with fire gets a bad rap. Case in point: Pelican & Pig. Situated in a converted auto upholstery shop in East Nashville, the crew here isn’t afraid to use their wood-burning hearth, cooking scallops, snapper, ribeyes, potatoes, and cornbread in a smoky blaze of glory. Order a bottle of chilled red (the light and fruity Martha Stoumen Post Flirtation is a standout) to temper the wood-fired dishes or opt for a rye cocktail to play up the spice and smoke. Either way, don’t leave without an order of the chocolate chip cookies with milk jam. Trust us.
