It looks as though Nashville is in for a healthy dose of Chicago-based restaurants this year. Following yesterday’s news of restaurant and bar Sunda coming to the Gulch, today brings word that Parson’s Chicken & Fish will be setting up shop in Wedgewood-Houston later this fall.
According to The Tennessean, the restaurant will be part of the May Hosiery redevelopment, joining the previously announced expansion of New Orleans food hall St. Roch Market in the project. Specific details are few, but the space, which will be designed by Nick Dryden’s DAAD Group, will feature an outdoor space and seat up to 200 guests.
Parson’s, known for its fried chicken sandwich, the invention of the Negroni slushie and its massive patio, opened its doors in Chicago’s Logan Square in the spring of 2013. Nashville was first introduced to the restaurant last spring when it popped up for a weekend at Pinewood Social.
The popular restaurant and bar is one of a handful of Chicago project development and design studio Land and Sea Dept.’s concepts, and the first outside the Chicago market. Others include the Michelin-starred Longman & Eagle, tiki bar Lost Lake and Milk Room and Cherry Circle Room at the Chicago Athletic Association hotel.
Eater has reached out to Land and Sea Dept. representatives for comment, so do check back for updates soon.
