Friday!I usually take Fridays off from running but I didn’t get my run date in with Katie this week so we scheduled a special Friday jog at 5:45 a.m. like normal people do. She’s training for Boston and had 16 miles on the menu — I definitely didn’t join her for all of those but powered through the first eight with her! It was dark for 99% of the run but by the time we got down to the airfield the sun was just starting to sort of show behind the clouds.Since I’d started early and was already eight miles in, I figured — what the heck. Might as well get my weekend long run out of the way! I tacked on two more miles for an even ten. I wasn’t even awake for most of this run so the whole thing just cruised right by.Feeling very pink and purple today. Guys. I’ve been dying to try The Birdhouse, a “Korean hot chicken” joint ever since it opened the other week. Anthony and I made big plans to go last night but it was CLOSED. Apparently it’s only open for lunch? What kind of business model is that?We drowned our sorrows at The Filling Station. Kombucha for me! (Sticking with the pink and purple theme)Eventually we ended up at Margot, an East Nashville favorite that’s been around for more than a decade. I’m always impressed when restaurants can stay cool for more than a few years — seems like such a competitive, fickle industry.I was craving chips in a bad way. These were addictive.Fettuccine – crumbed veal – roasted red peppers – arugula. So fresh!And THIS chicken. Not exaggerating, I think this was the best chicken I’ve ever eaten in my life. We asked our waiter for tips on how to make it at home! I think the secret might be cast iron and a lotta butter. Margot is a new (old) favorite! I haven’t been here since I was in high school and it’s even better than I remember.
Have a happy Easter!
