DETAILS
Featuring the best skillet-fried chicken in Nashville, Monell's offers family-style communal dining with Southern-style food meant for comfort. Michael King opened the flagship restaurant in 1995 in a stately, restored Victorian house in the Germantown neighborhood. ... Family-style means you sit at a big table, pass the heaping bowls of well-prepared, Southern-style meats and sides to your left, and try to behave yourself among brand-new friends. (That means turn your cell phones off!) The heavenly fried chicken is offered at every meal, including weekend country breakfasts/brunches. Fried catfish is another favorite on Fridays and Saturdays. Pot roast, chicken and dumplings, spinach lasagna, barbecued ribs and chicken, and meat loaf are other entrées on the revolving menu of three daily entrées, three or four salads, four or five hot vegetables, along with cornbread and rolls, beverages and dessert. Reservations not accepted. No alcohol available. Serving: breakfast 8:30 am-1 pm Sat and 8:30-11 am Sun; lunch 10:30 am-2 pm Mon-Fri, 1-3 pm Sat and 11 am-4 pm Sun; and dinner 5-8:30 pm Tue–Sat. "Monell's in Nashville is one of those places where you shouldn't eat breakfast that morning (or maybe even last night's dinner). You're basically in for a Southern Thanksgiving, except with 10 or so people you've never met."
- Erin Zimmer, Serious Eats, Jan. 21, 2010
