8:32 pm
a country music capital, grand ole opry, and it is music city. and there is indeed plenty of country music, both genuine and fake-ass, but it's way more than that. nashville is one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in all america. people who grew up here will tell you the city is in a state of perpetual, never-ending change, and the rate at which things are changing is accelerating. eighty to a hundred new faces move to nashville every single day. some things are constants, others in flux. even with all the radical cultural shifts, the city still remains traditionally southern in its sensibility, for now, anyway. because nashville could just as soon be called punk city or rock city, and you are just as likely to find the word artisanal hanging over the door of a sandwich shop, or a cupcake shop, or a slow-drip coffee laptop zone as anywhere in the land of man buns in the cities
8:33 pm
of the north. so, of course, the chefs are coming. carpetbaggers seeking their fortunes attracted by a more affordable business environment or just looking for a better quality of life. sons and daughters of the south looking to honor the traditions they grew up with over the more modern sensibility. here's four chefs who helped change things, who were instrumental in starting something truly new and innovative, but what because of their efforts and their mentoring, their early examples, is becoming more and more accepted practice. tyler brown of capitol grille in southall. tandy wilson of city house. our old friend sean brock of husk nashville. and the distinguished pat martin
8:34 pm
of martin's barbecue joint. sundays are often spent here at pat's house -- friends, family kicking back and drinking beer and cooking over the fire pits. all these chefs pride themselves on celebrating local, seasonal, southern ingredients, and close relationships with farmers and food producers from the area. those are 90-day aged ribeyes from nearby bear creek farm slowly cooking there, and they're gonna be topped off with oyster mushrooms and bourbon soy, and some nice runny eggs and garlic. grits, well, of course. these are called greasy beans, pressure canned in saltwater then heated up with pork fat, so i'm not hating that, for sure. there's also homemade ricotta served with a cold smoked sausage and roasted acorn squash. >> pat: you better get it, friend. because if you don't, you're screwed, man. everybody gets an egg. everybody cool with that? >> anthony: oh, hell yeah. it's a must. >> tandy: doesn't really matter what i'm eating if i'm eating outdoors. >> anthony: really?
8:35 pm
>> tandy: i love eating outdoors. >> anthony: yeah, me too. oh yeah. now we're talkin'. thank you. so who started in the restaurant hospitality business in nashville first? you started -- >> pat: october of '06. >> anthony: '06. >> anthony: '03?rted in 2003. what was it like in '03? what did people want to eat in nashville in '03? >> sean: holy cow. >> tyler: steak and potatoes. >> sean: steakhouse, man. that's all it was. those were the only places to eat. >> anthony: yeah, but which came first, the customer or the chef in this case? >> pat: chef. >> sean: chef, man. >> tyler: chef showed up first. >> anthony: how open to new shit -- >> sean: that's the thing about people in nashville. >> anthony: -- were people in nashville? always? from the beginning? >> sean: people, yeah. >> pat: because it's artistic. people are very progressive. >> tandy: it's such a creative -- >> pat: it doesn't mean they know what they're tasting, or at that time they knew what they were tasting, but they wanted it. >> anthony: who's from here originally? >> tandy: i am. >> anthony: that's it. >> tandy: i think so. >> anthony: so there are all carpetbaggers at this table? >> tandy: yeah. >> anthony: i mean, right?
8:36 pm
>> pat: there's some of that. >> anthony: nashville's lower broadway on music row. it's what nashville's selling. it's what the tourists want. and the honky-tonks or mchonky tonks that line the strip now tend to lean more towards cover bands than singer/songwriters. on one hand, it employs a hell of a lot of musicians, which is a good thing. on the other hand -- >> man: whoo! yeah! >> anthony: stray from lower broadway, you're bound to stumble upon a genuine dive bar. and nashville's got some real good ones. so, what is this place? >> tandy: dino's? >> anthony: yeah. >> tandy: it's a burger joint that's been here for a long time. a lot of country music history is in here. a lot of nashville history is in here. it's a fun place where you see a lot of new east nashville life.
8:37 pm
>> cook: order up. >> sean: i can't tell you how many burgers i had here that i don't remember. there's a picture of 'em on my phone, "oh i had a burger at dino's!" >> anthony: what is this? >> sean: they call these hot fries, so it's like the flavor of hot chicken, but with fries and velveeta. i think it's velveeta. >> anthony: it's like country poutine. >> sean: exactly, man, this is like redneck poutine. >> pat: mm, that's good. >> sean: tony, what's cool about like these dive bars here, is there's so many studio musicians here. if you're not a badass musician in this town, you're not gonna make it, so everywhere you go, you're hearing the most incredible players you've ever seen anywhere in the world. >> anthony: what music rules here still? is country music still? >> pat: well, they've effed up country music so bad on music row, it's not even funny. >> sean: it's not country music. >> pat: it's bullshit. but there's also so much more than country. you know? >> sean: oh, man, that's the
8:38 pm
thing people don't realize about nashville is it's not just country music. >> anthony: if you're looking for iconic nashville, what's bone-deep local, even deeper than the dive bar culture, you would be talking about a thing called meat and three. meat and three is a cafeteria-type institution offering for a set price a choice of meat and three sides. >> anthony: i've been thinking about this all day, since the minute i woke up. >> jeese: have you? >> anthony: oh, hell yeah. >> jeese: it's the real deal. >> anthony: dandgure's in downtown nashville is just such an institution. doors open at 10:00 am and close at 2:00 pm, with a rotating selection of a dozen lunch staples, you're pretty sure to find what you came for. okra or black-eyed peas? what do you think? what should i do? >> jeese: okra. >> anthony: okra, okay. this gentleman too, is something of an institution -- jesse boyce, a two-time grammy award nominee,
8:39 pm
instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, and ceo of sovereign music group in nashville. >> anthony: this is a big nashville tradition, the meat and three. >> jesse: absolutely. see, you see a little bit of everybody in here from truck drivers, to mothers, to lawyers, whomever. you can see it's multicultural. everybody's just like really comfortable with each other. it's like the microcosm of what nashville is really like. >> anthony: now, i mean, most people, i think, who haven't been to nashville, outside looking in, they see nashville, they think country music. >> jesse: exactly. >> anthony: but it's really not that at all. i mean, yes, there is a hell of a lot of country music here. >> jesse: but we have two strands of music that were emerging at the same time, historically. '50s and '60s, we had "hee haw" and "night train." ♪ >> archival: all aboard the "night train," now boarding, and you have the best seat in the house, so let's get rolling to great entertainment.
8:40 pm
>> jesse: "night train" was the black tv show that had all the major r&b artists on and the local artists on, the same as we had with "hee haw" and all the country artists. and then you had jefferson street. jefferson street is where all the black artists came to play. people like jimi hendrix, little richard, b.b. king, aretha franklin, ray charles, all of these people played in nashville on jefferson street. we had blacks and whites coming into the inner city. we didn't have broadway. we had jefferson street. back in the day, it was the place to go. ♪ >> anthony: the jefferson street district no longer resembles its neon-lit heyday. like a lot of historic neighborhoods in nashville, it's being slowly eaten by developers to make way for the shiny and

8:45 pm
to park her car, she says, and nashville seemed right. >> alison: i lived in london forever riding the bus. i really wanted to get a muscle car, and i needed a garage to put it in. there's no way i can be unhappy in this car. >> anthony: completely understand the relationship. this is a custom-made dodge challenger. if it hits you with speed, it will mess you up real bad. >> anthony: i love this car. i'm having car envy. ♪ this is nashville hot chicken. if you order it in its hottest iteration, it too will mess you up, as i came to find out. hot chicken recipes are notoriously kept secret, but preparation always begins with the poultry getting double dredged and deep fried for a thick, crispy crust. then each piece is given a wet or dry application for that sought-after caustic kick. with the wet, the chef's mix of hot spice comes in an oil-based sauce or paste that the chicken
8:46 pm
is dipped in or coated with. other cooks use the dry method, coating the chicken with a blistering blend of cayenne, sugar, paprika, and other secret spices that form a fiery outer layer. if you come here to the very fine bolton's for your hot chicken or their optional hot fish, it can, in its milder forms, which are still scorchingly hot, be delicious. but try the hot stuff, and watch out. no, really, watch out. uh, how long you been in nashville? >> alison: four years maybe? i was working here all the time. i loved it. i thought it was beautiful. lots of people i knew were moving here. lots of bands. lots of rock and roll was coming to town. >> anthony: yeah. like a real lot. >> alison: you know, when i was touring when i was a teenager, this is a place you would avoid. if you were in a punk band, don't come play nashville, no one will come to your show. that sort of seemed to change like ten years ago, where suddenly, it was like, "people are showing up."
8:47 pm
>> anthony: right. all right. >> waitress: from left to right, hot, medium, mild. and then the fish, spicy. >> alison: okay, thank you. >> matthew: i didn't even order, so you guys go for it. >> anthony: oh, you're gonna have to try some. >> anthony: matthew mosshart, alison's brother, is a professional chef who moved here in 2013 to start a catering business. >> matthew: we should have gloves on. oh, man. >> anthony: the medium is really hot. that's really hot. and it just keeps coming. >> alison: you're already diving into the coleslaw a million miles an hour. >> anthony: yeah. >> matthew: oh, my god. >> alison: are you dying? >> matthew: yeah, this isn't good. it hurts. that was -- >> anthony: which one did you get? >> matthew: i think medium, mild, whatever it is.
8:48 pm
>> alison: i know that i don't have a hot one, but this is hot anyway. i'm just -- i'm trying to bond with you guys. >> anthony: all right, i'm going in. do not resuscitate. >> matthew: oh, man. i don't want this. >> anthony: oh. oh, that hurts. i think i'm hallucinating. >> matthew: that one's putting you in a head spin. >> alison: oh, my god. >> anthony: it's like a sharp burning, and it just keeps coming, and coming, and coming. it's not going away. >> matthew: you got nothing on yours? was it like a medium? >> alison: i'm good over here. i'm real good. >> matthew: you're fine, you're good to go? >> alison: this is great. yeah. >> matthew: get a little bit of mustard? >> alison: there appears to be a little bit of mustard on here, yes. >> anthony: how bad can it be?
8:49 pm
i just experienced like 12-hour payback for -- from hot chicken. >> dean: right. >> anthony: i mean, and this was an existentially awful experience that i really -- there were moments when i didn't think i was gonna make it. this has gotta be so much better than that, and it's only three minutes. >> dean: only three minutes. i'll take it. >> anthony: do you serve snacks in there? my friend, dean fertita, plays guitar and keyboards for queens of the stone age, and he also plays with the dead weather, with alison, who you just met. a nashville resident too, he trains in krav maga, a lethal martial art at the same gym where i train jiu jitsu when in town. these things hurt. they punish the body. they make a person sore. fortunately, i had a knuckleheaded idea and a place to do it. cryotherapy. the latest in muscle recovery treatments. so far so good. >> dean: no. >> anthony: no? >> dean: this is a terrible

restaurant, tony. >> anthony: basically, you step inside a big tube into which liquid nitrogen is pumped, chilling things down to a less than comfortable minus 300 degrees you inherently convince your body that it's dying on the permafrost, causing it to kick loose all sorts of emergency, lifesaving, anti-inflammatory proteins, after which you are supposed to feel better. if your fingers and penis don't shatter like hummel figurines. >> cryo worker: you did it. >> anthony: oh! all right! >> dean: oh. turn it off. whoa. >> anthony: well, how do you feel? >> dean: good luck. dying. in a good way, though. >> anthony: all right. so step right in? >> cryo worker: yeah, step in -- >> anthony: i don't like the way he looks. he looks unhappy. all right. >> cryo worker: sorry. did you notice how like the last 40, 50 seconds were the coldest? >> dean: yeah.

8:53 pm
>> anthony: yeah. >> dean: i totally believe that. >> anthony: you don't doubt that? >> dean: no. >> anthony: she does love that car. >> dean: right. >> anthony: i mean, as much as i talk about it, i would never buy a muscle car because once i start, it's like i would never be satisfied, i would, you know. you don't wanna be like jay leno with like 30 muscle cars. you know, let's face it, if you owned 30 classic muscle cars, there comes a point where people are gonna look at you and say, you know, "sorry about your penis." you know? there's something -- something else going on here. i used to book my hotel room on those travel sites but there was always a catch. like somehow you wind up getting less. but now that i book at, and i get all these great perks. i got to select my room from the floor plan... very nice... i know, i'm good at picking stuff. free wi-fi... laptop by the pool is a bold choice... and the price match guarantee. how do you know all of this? are you like some magical hilton fairy? it's just here on the hilton app. just available to the public, so... book at and get the hilton price match guarantee. if you find a lower rate, we match it and give you 25% off that stay. if you find a lower rate, we match it and give you ♪

9:00 pm
town's axis a bit, making nashville the center, not just of country music, but also, what? of course, white has also produced albums for country music legends like loretta lynn, so if anything, they are reliably unreliable when predicting what they might do next. >> lab worker: let's get ready for a full take. >> anthony: right now, what comes next is margo price -- >> lab worker: we're gonna do another one. >> anthony: -- who's recording today at third man's live music venue, the blue room. the recording, a unique, one of a kind operation because it's all going directly to acetate. before digital and before analog tape was used for mastering, disc recording was done live. no editing, no overdubs. redirecting this process on this 1953 lathe, third man has mastered a number of albums like this, giving listeners as close to a live experience as possible. also, it's kinda cool. >> lab worker 2: here at third man in the blue room, it's the only place in the world where

>> josh: at the whim of poli right now. >> anthony: chef ryan poli is the new kid in town, fresh from chicago. a veteran of mercadito, hospitality's tavernita, little market brasserie, and barcito. >> ryan: all right. first serving we have, this is risotto, but instead of using rice, we use sunflower seeds. we treated it like a normal risotto, added parmesan cheese and a little bit of butter, we topped it with a little bit of fermented sunchokes, the base of the sunflower plant, and just garnished it with a little green sunflower sprouts. so we used three different cooking techniques with one ingredient to make this dish. enjoy. >> anthony: beautiful. mm. wow. insanely delicious. nothing about that description sounded particularly interesting to me, but it's delicious. >> ryan: this next course is a play on a very traditional italian dish, linguini, chili flakes, sea urchin or crabmeat. this is our version.
9:12 pm
we just use japanese ingredients. so we made a wakame seaweed bucatini. we have yuzukosho to represent the chili flakes, they're a little bit citrusy, a little bit spicy, and then we took scallops and dried and smoked them and grated it over the top. enjoy. >> anthony: ah! >> josh: thank you. >> anthony: man. you are talking my language here. that's obscenely good. i would face plant in a big bowl of this. this will be good. remember when tony soprano would come home? he'd come home after a night of whoring and killing people, and he'd go home and he'd open their refrigerator and there'd be like a tupperware container, and there would be like some cold leftover ziti that carmela had made him, like, maybe the night before, maybe two nights ago, but the fact is it was there? as completely awesome as this is, i would wake up and eat this cold, like in a tupperware container the next morning. i would totally eat this. it's completely awesome. >> ryan: that's a great compliment. there's a couple cookies in here for you. one's a macaroon, chocolate and
9:13 pm
raspberry. >> anthony: wow. >> ryan: my pleasure. enjoy. >> anthony: mm. i like rooting around in gene simmons's brain. yeah, i do not approve of your right-wing politics. oh yeah, oh yeah.
