East Nashville’s Lockeland Table is woven into the Lockeland neighborhood. Situated among family homes, the Lockeland crew took inspiration from neighborhood storefronts of decades past to make the restaurant look like a general store from the outside. To start our meal, we ordered the crab and corn fritters along with the cornbread of the day. The fritters come four to an order, crunchy on the outside and smooth on the inside, and are served on top of a bed of slaw and remoulade sauce. The cornbread was cheddar while we were there, served with a healthy portion of honey butter – so good!
