Alice Randall Suggests Music City Hits to Hungry Brits



  • Eric England
On the heels of last weekend's rundown of Nashville's hottest eating and drinking spots that Dana pointed out on Monday, The Guardian has recruited yet another prominent Nashvillian to share her advice on the local dining scene.

Alice Randall is well-known as a fiction author and professor at Vanderbilt, but she is quite a foodie as well. She personally demostrated her bona fides to me when she prepared the welcoming shot of potlikker at a Southern Foodways Alliance event at City House a few years back, and she is chef Jamie Oliver's Nashville ambassador for his Food Revolution movement.

So Randall is a logical choice for The Guardian to seek out for advice on live music, food and lodging in Nashville. Her picks included lunch at Burger Up or a trip to Prince's for hot chicken, dinner at hot spots Rolf and Daughters, City House or Margot, and Pub5 for a nightcap after an evening of honky-tonking.

With all this Anglo attention, I took a quick peek at round trip air fares from Heathrow to Nashville. The cheapest flight I found was $800-plus, so while Randall made some excellent choices, maybe somebody should let the Brits know about The Recession Special at Robert's.
