Where are you, Conor? I was thinking that the plate at 10 o’clock was some kind of fried cornbread, and the vegetable on the main plate was collard greens. If not for the meat on the main plate, I’d think the South. But who would possibly travel south and order roast beef instead of pulled pork?
The photograph is taken in Nashville, TN, at a place called Arnold’s Country Kitchen if memory serves — it’s a little “meat and three” lunch room. Why roast beef instead of pulled pork? That’s the meat they had that day. Actually I probably would’ve gotten the chicken liver and dirty rice instead, but we got there late, and they were out of it.
