Kick off your day of sightseeing and gastronomy with a hearty breakfast—in Nashville, that likely includes scratch biscuits and country ham. While fried chicken is a staple throughout the South, Nashville has put a fiery twist on it with their signature hot chicken, made with plenty of cayenne pepper. Another hearty option, popular at lunch, is what’s known locally as a meat-and-three : typically meatloaf, brisket, ham, or country-fried steak with three veggies on the side. Thirsty travelers shouldn’t miss the chance to sample some sweet tea or a craft cocktail made with Tennessee whiskey.
