Parson’s Chicken & Fish – Nashville TN

March 23, 2017

Parson’s Chicken & Fish – Nashville TN – Coming to the Houston Wedgewood area.
Roomer has it ! Here is some information about their concept in their hometown of Chicago.

As with Longman, Parson’s Chicken & Fish has been another fully immersive project, one where we have attempted to transform a neglected corner on the Humboldt Park / Logan Square neighborhood divides into a bustling indoor / outdoor party spot.

On its face, Parson’s is a mere chicken and fish joint, one that conceptually references the sort fast ‘counter’ shacks so prevalent on Chicago’s West Side, and throughout the country on the whole. But with it, we hoped to show that building a menu around local, organic and sustainable ingredients could be done in an affordable, casual and fast atmosphere.




We approached the drink program similarly, offering up honest, simple creations at reasonable price points, the breakout being a negroni slushy creation that has received national attention, brightened so many nights, and by turns ruined many a morning for thousands and thousands of folks. (Ourselves included!)

A full departure – in a number of ways – from our work on Longman & Eagle, Parson’s has an aesthetic and ethos all its own. Using a red and white tile pattern as inspiration, we developed a design platform that is bright, clean and fresh, encouraging and enhancing the hard partying outdoor vibe we’ve since achieved.




“While the art of al fresco dining is at work, smart design has also contributed to Parson’s stature as a sure-to-be-swamped destination when the mercury goes north of 60.” – Dwell


As we do, we collaborated with artists and friends where we could. Lettering and graphic artist Matthew Tapia did the identity work, Jon Martin worked with artist Stephen Eichhorn on the wood patterned bathroom door stalls, and artist Ryan Duggan decorated our El Camino. (So, yeah…we bought a 1977 El Camino for the project, for purposes…still…undefined.) Musically, we focused on a ‘chooglin’ soundtrack of early funk, gritty rock and doleful soul, further perpetuating an all party, all the time environment that hasn’t ceased since we’ve opened.

Five Daughters Bakery is a family business, owned and operated by Isaac and Stephanie Meek along with their five daughters in Franklin, Tennessee.

Five Daughters Bakery 12th South Nashville

Isaac is a third generation local business owner and baker. His great grandfather owned a cake shop and his grandfather owned a pizzeria. It’s safe to say baking runs in the family.

“Beginning as a food-lover duo in Manhattan with big visions to share that love, we have expanded our family and have enjoyed sharing meals with friends around our table over the years. Now you are invited to join us.

“We are dedicated to making each culinary experience from our kitchen a memorable one. Our menu reflects a balance of comfort and innovation, as well as a high standard of quality and integrity. We believe in love above all things, and we hope you will taste that value in our food.”

Five Daughters Donuts 12th South Nashville TN

This is the Five Daughters Bakery version of a cronut. It is a delicious hybrid of a croissant and a donut, and takes up to three days to craft this decadent creation.

100 Layer Donut -

100 Layer Donut – “It’s like America and France made slow sweet love and had a pastry baby.”

Once cooked, the 100 layer donut is rolled in sugar, filled with cream, and topped with a heavenly glaze. This is one experience you will want to have more than once.

Five Daughters Kouign Amaan “The Quinn”

Meaning “cake butter…” Need we say more? Named after our fifth daughter, Constance Quinn, this light pastry is essentially a crispy, caramelized croissant that will leave you begging for one more bite.

Paleo Crushers

A healthy doughnut?! It’s true! At Five Daughters Bakery we believe in stewarding our bodies without compromising flavor. Our doughnut delivers on both counts. Completely free of grains, gluten, dairy, and sugars, we offer a delicious selection of these tasty treats that will provide wholesome energy to power your day.


Yes, we have donuts for those who avoid animal related ingredients. These tasty treats contain no eggs or dairy at all. You should note that since we do not use artificial preservatives they do not tend to store well. Buy them and eat them fresh and they are “yum!”

Stuffed Happy Doughnuts

This is a classic creation to celebrate at Five Daughters Bakery. Our traditional yeast beast is exactly what it sounds like. Stuffed with homemade jams, custards, and creams, you will find our selection to be nostalgic yet refreshingly innovative. Add a glass of milk or a cup of joe, and you are guaranteed pure happiness.

My Favorite Cupcake

Ditch every bakery chain and grocery store cupcake cupcake you’ve ever had and set your standards at an all-time high. This cupcake has been popularized at every one of our daughters’ birthday parties. Kids and grown ups alike look forward to this perfectly moist and not overly sweet cupcake. You can’t have just one.

Edley’s Bar-B-Que 12th South Nashville

Edley’s Bar-B-Que is a tribute to all things southern.  At Edley’s Bar-B-Que, we focus on our guests overall experience while showcasing a unique Nashville personality.  From the service to the food to the catering, we want to be the best we can be. When you walk through the door at Edley’s Bar-B-Que, you are welcomed like an old family friend and then we make every effort to make sure you are comfortable in our home. We strive to serve the best food we can make and prove ourselves one plate at a time. Edley’s Bar-B-Que is a Nashville institution, one that unites the Nashville tradition of meat and three with the best Bar-B-Que this side of the Mississippi.

Edley’s Bar-B-Que smokes all meats fresh daily using local White Oak wood. Our meat is smoked low and slow.  We smoke only enough meat for the day, so it is a first come first serve kind of place.  The result is a flavor of meat that keeps people coming back for more.

Unlike other BBQ joints, we do not stop with just the smoked meats.  We prepare eight to ten Southern style side dishes made from scratch everyday with recipes derived from mothers, grandmothers, nannies and housekeepers.   These side dishes coupled with the fresh, smoked meats will quickly and easily make Edley’s Bar-B-Que the best Bar-B-Que in Nashville. Edley’s also offers barbeque catering to Nashville and the surrounding areas.

Edley Newman

Edley’s Bar-B-Que is named in honor of the late Edley Newman, grandfather of owner Will Newman. George Edley Newman, Jr. was born in 1907 in the small town of Viola, TN where he lived most of his life. He left a legacy of generosity, hard work, and southern hospitality that inspired his children and grandchildren. Edley’s Bar-B-Que is “A Tribute to All Things Southern” just as Edley Newman lived his life. He loved his family, friends, and his community and the owners strive to keep this alive through the restaurant. The Edley’s family believes Edley Newman can smell the barbecue and hear the laughter from above.

History of 12th South Nashville

History of 12th South Nashville

Two hundred years ago, the widow Granny White packed up her orphaned grandchildren and trudged some 800 miles west from North Carolina to Tennessee, over the Cumberland Plateau. She settled along the old buffalo path south of Nashville, now known as Granny White Pike, first selling ginger cakes from a roadside stand, then opening an inn for travelers making their way up and down the Natchez Trace, a few miles to the west.


Lately, much the same spirit of hospitality and entrepreneurship has returned to the thoroughfare that bears her name, or at least to the funky stretch of 12th Avenue South that empties into it. The difference, today, is that instead of the pancakes, clean sheets and applejack for which White was famous, Nashvillians and tourists frequent the street for gourmet popsicles, rodeo couture and cucumber martinis.

Until recently, this strip of 12th Avenue South had no identity, other than a reputation for being a rough part of town. Apart from the presence of a handful of tenacious merchants, 12th Avenue wasn’t so much a destination as a means of getting somewhere else. Now, lined with galleries, sweet shops and other mom and pop stores, the 10 blocks that run from Linden Avenue to Sevier Park bisect one of the hippest up-and-coming neighborhoods in Nashville.

The area isn’t completely gentrified, and, despite being rechristened ”12South,” likely won’t be any time soon. Only two miles below the downtown loop, it has a mix of working-class people and new bohemians that is a little too urban, the assortment of high-end specialty shops and blue-collar businesses too heterodox, to be ripe for colonization by adventurous suburbanites.

TwelveSouth begins as you crest 12th headed out of town and meet the brooding hills of Williamson County looming in the distance. Heralding your arrival is Serendipity, an upscale boutique, in a two-story brick edifice called the Linden, that trades in chic clothing and accessories. A block farther out is Trim Classic Barber and Legendary Beauty, a retro hair salon (one side for him, the other for her) where men can be treated to a shave with a straight razor, hot towels and all.

Anchoring this upper end of 12South is Mirror, the restaurant that initiated Nashvillians into the mysteries of tapas. The blue cheese polenta fries, served with a charred tomato dipping sauce, are amazing, as is the bruschetta. The proprietors recommend a dry sherry to go with both, but you also can’t go wrong with a cucumber martini or a Belgian Trappist ale. Or the ”Bob Deanie,” a froth of single malt and bitters served, as the menu promises, ”ice-cold like [the] heart” of the restaurant’s droll barkeep, the drink’s namesake and creator.

Across the street from Mirror on 12th is a row of refurbished bungalows inhabited by dealers of antiques and collectibles. At the Emporium, you’ll find singularities like wood sculptures made with chain saws and a light fixture fashioned from a clarinet by a pair of artists who call themselves the Twisted Sisters. One door down from Mirror to the south (unknown to most local people) is Dolly Parton’s rehearsal studio, a faux hacienda complex that could have been airlifted from the back lot of Universal Studios. Of special note is the kitschy chapel, which accommodates five people, tops. Regrettably, it’s not open to the public.

Nashville, of course, is the buckle of the Bible Belt, and there is no shortage of churches along 12South. Almost all of them are Protestant and African-American and, with one exception, modest red-brick buildings with small white steeples. The house of worship that stands out, however, is the Islamic Center, a hub for the city’s growing Muslim population. Those who congregate out front and in the parking lot after services represent one aspect of the changing face of Nashville, which is now home to tens of thousands of people from Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Far East and central Africa. It’s not unusual, on a Friday afternoon, to see a ribbon of yellow and orange taxis parked around the Islamic Center belonging to the Somali drivers inside. On Fridays passers-by may hear the numinous droning of those assembled for evening prayer drifting into the street.

Such epiphanies are more accessible now that there are sidewalks along this part of 12th Avenue. The street has yet to give way to a proliferation of strollers and joggers, though; there’s just not enough of a shoulder, and traffic tends to speed by at a nerve-racking clip. Better to park near a favorite spot and work your way a few blocks up and down in each direction, and then drive to another point and do the same.

You can’t go wrong starting at Becker’s, a family-owned bakery that’s been in business for more than 75 years. Everything is made from scratch; both the fancy wafers (pastel-colored butter cookies) and the chess tarts (with a rich Southern pie filling consisting of butter, sugar and eggs) are great with a double espresso from Portland Brew across the way. A block or so north, you can browse for vintage clothing at Katy K Ranch Dressing.

Katy K is the brainchild of Katy Kattelman, who used to have a shop in Manhattan. Besides her own handmade creations, which run a gamut of styles from rockabilly to punk, Katy sells rhinestone-studded originals by celebrated rodeo tailors like Nudie and Manuel. A canary-colored cowboy shirt stitched with wagon wheels and cactuses, once worn by a member of Porter Wagoner’s band, was on display until recently when it went for $200 on eBay.

For a different sort of wearable art, there’s Tye Dye Mary’s, above Granny’s Flower Shop at the south end of the strip, right before 12th turns into Granny White Pike. My 12-year-old son, Marshall, has at least a dozen of Mary’s T-shirts. She tie-dyes everything from panties and prom jackets to linens and doggy T-shirts, the last adorning the dogs who chase Frisbees on the sloping green of Sevier Park across the street.

Nashville, of course, is renowned as Music City, and as the Country Music Capital of the World in particular. Yet there aren’t any listening rooms along 12South, just a pair of music stores, Corner Music and Fork’s Drum Closet. Occasionally, a portable stage or band shell goes up in Sevier Park, where the likes of Uhuru, an African dance troupe, and Mystic Meditations, a local reggae band, have performed. For country music, though, you have to head back up 12th toward downtown, about a mile or so past the 12South strip, to the Station Inn. A roadhouse straight out of a mountain hollow, the Station has been a mecca for bluegrass since the 1970’s. The heady likes of Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley and Earl Scruggs as well as inheritors like Alison Krauss and Nickel Creek have graced its stage.

Five blocks north of the Station Inn on 12th as you cross Broadway is 12th and Porter Playroom, a cave of a lounge known for booking rootsy singer-songwriters like Alejandro Escovedo and Freedy Johnston. In a series of memorable acoustic dates at 12th and Porter in the mid-90’s, Lucinda Williams worried over the songs that became ”Car Wheels on a Gravel Road.”

On 12th as you head into town, at the corner of 12th and Edgehill, is a historic marker commemorating the legendary harmonica player DeFord Bailey. A favorite on the Grand Ole Opry from 1927, and the first black star in country music, Bailey was fired from the Opry under murky circumstances in 1941, after which he opened a shoeshine shop, eventually dying in obscurity. It’s a disgrace that he’s not yet a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Before venturing from 12South downtown in pursuit of music, though, stop at Las Paletas for a handmade Mexican popsicle. Made from fresh ingredients by Irma and Norma Paz, paletas are an ordinary treat in Mexico but still a novelty in Nashville. The flavors range from mango and hibiscus to chocolate-wasabi and cucumber-chili-pepper. ”Two-dollar adventures,” one customer called them.

There’s no sign out front of Las Paletas, so keep an eye out for 2907 12th Avenue South; for advertising, the Paz sisters rely on the vigorous word-of-mouth of their evangelical customers. No doubt Granny White, whose delicacies and gift for hospitality inspired similar devotion, would have been proud.
