Put down your fork and drive to Public House in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Because you have simply got to taste the fried chicken livers, grits and Tabasco butter.
This is one of the best dishes I've encountered in quite some time. What's more, the restaurant has a great vibe that's a satisfying mix of relaxed and swanky. The food and the environs represent the best of contemporary Southern dining.
If liver makes you squeamish, this dish will likely win you over. It's that good. The crispy coating transforms the liver into a crunchy treat. The hot sauce adds a zippy contrast and grits round out the flavors.
Bottom Line: Fantastic.
