Best Soul Food


A Nashville institution for decades, the Swett family restaurants—particularly the original Clifton location—are still among the few places in Nashville where people of all backgrounds and origins routinely mingle without anyone even thinking about it. If you like cornbread, collards, black-eyed peas or other soul food staples more than you like to cook for yourself, then fill up a tray and pull up a seat at either the flagship store or at Bicentennial Mall restaurant. At both low-key locations, the tradition of a diverse dining room is worth more than a dozen modern flat-screen TVs. Ron Wynn
