For the next installment in our local guide, I want to highlight another delicious restaurant…. The Walnut Kitchen in Maryville, Tennessee. Ian and I recently stopped in for the first time, and we were both REALLY impressed. The decor has a rustic-urban feel, and the food is an elegant version of some favorite country fare. You can see how excited Ian got when they brought out the mini pan of cornbread. We tried the fried okra at the server’s suggestion, and it was amazing–hands down the best fried okra I’ve ever had.
