Yelp/Bailey & Cato

It will soon be the end of an era for one of the city’s most popular meat-and-threes, as East Nashville’s Bailey & Cato Family Restaurant will close its doors on Oct. 30.

Owned and operated out of a converted house in Inglewood’s Riverside Village by Robert Bailey and his family for the past 16 years, Bailey’s daughter and B&C manager Beth Crawford confirms the closure, telling Eater that her father plans to retire at the end of next month.

But the restaurant, known for its fried cornbread and fried chicken, among other Southern staples, still might have a second act, as Crawford says that she and one of her brothers are in the process of looking for a new location. So be on the lookout for future updates.
