Viet Pham’s long-awaited Pretty Bird will make its debut on Wednesday, February 21.
The 16-seat restaurant is focused on fried chicken—specifically Nashville’s famed hot chicken. Pham explains, “I tried it for the first time in 2012 and I’ve been working on this concept ever since then.”
Pretty Bird hot chicken will come in four levels of heat: mild, medium, hot and “hot behind.” Along with fried chicken, a variety of seasonal sides will be offered.
Located on Regent Street in the Eccles Building, Pretty Bird will accommodate an additional 25 guests on the patio when weather permits.
Of the cozy space Pham says, “I want to have an inviting vibe. I want this project to be accessible to more people. I mean, who doesn’t want fried chicken, beer and wine?”
Location: 146 S. Regent Street
Hours: Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
