The Windy City’s Parson’s Chicken & Fish finally opens its Nashville outpost on Wednesday, August 7 in Wedgewood-Houston.
The popular destination for boozy slushies, crispy fried chicken, and patio vibes opens its newest location at 425 Chestnut Street, seating 200 guests with indoor and outdoor space combined. Land & Sea Dept. teamed up with acclaimed Nashville-based architecture and interior design studio DAAD for a massive overhaul of the May Hosiery space (a sock mill, in its former life).
Similar to the Chicago locations, Parson’s Nashville outpost features a spacious, pet-friendly patio area, with plenty of umbrellas for shade and fans on the fully covered portion, for the last heated throes of summer.
Chef Hunter Moore’s menu here echos Chicago’s—obviously serving Parson’s signature fried chicken and fish—but also with lighter options like a vegetable club sandwich, ceviche, salads, and grilled Amish chicken.
Known as the home of the original Negroni slushie, Parson’s has a full bar and serves their own private labeled Parson’s beer, a collaboration with Chicago-based Revolution Brewing.
The popular Logan Square hang first opened in Chicago in 2013, then added a second location last year in Lincoln Park, before expanding outside the Windy City to Nashville.
Starting Wednesday, August 7, Parson’s Nashville will be open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to midnight, and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.
