Yes, Nashville has long been masters at making perfectly-crispy fried catfish and bowls of hearty shrimp and grits, but there are so many new flavors and preparations to be had these days. For instance, The Original Giant King Fish sandwich from East Side Fish is so "crunk" it was featured in the Road Food column of Gourmet Magazine before they ceased publication. For something a little more upscale and a little less messy, Cascades in the Opryland Resort is just right, thanks to the luxe resort gardens that surround you while you eat. Of course, the people watching there can't be beat either. So whether you prefer your seafood with a side of hush puppies and a glass of sweet tea - and you can't do wrong with the version found at Batter'd and Fried - or with a fine wine and some ambient lighting, Nashville's seafood scene has something delicious to offer. You can even find a an authentic Cajun place in Bro's bringing gumbo and crawfish straight from NOLA to Music City. Sure, many restaurants in town have an outstanding seafood dish or two, but for this list of Top 10 spots, it's their specialty.
