I ask because I'm sort of lamenting that The Catbird Seat may never be the same in a couple of weeks. With Josh already departed, and Erik leaving for PDX at year's end, who knows ...
Which brings me to my answer, I think the most memorable dish I had in Nashville this year was the Pigeon dish at The Catbird Seat. The pigeon itself was marvelous, but to pair it sour hibiscus leaf and crispy salsify (!) was revelatory.
So Pigeon at The Catbird Seat was no doubt my most memorable Nashville dish, and probably a very very very close second would be the deep-fried short ribs at Etch.
What is yours?
