Carla Hall

Being a Nashville native, Carla Hall has made her way around the honky-tonk land discovering her favorite restaurants along the way. Known for her appearances on food-related TV shows like Top Chef and The Chew, she’s definitely got food down to a tee. Despite her own experience in soul food cooking, she has a love for all cuisines, especially those she’s grown so fond of in her own hometown. She gave us a list of her top foodie picks throughout Nashville. Next time you’re in the area, you’ll have to try one of her go-to spots. As Carla would say it, “Hootie Hoo!”
