Good. Maybe the line on 8th will be shorter. 

It may help because you gotta think all the tourists will just hit the one in walking distance to most the hotels.

What is inauthentic about it? 

It's not Prince's. Literally other than Prince's and a few other small spots, Nashville hot chicken was NOT a thing even 10 years ago. To the extent it did exist it was predominantly an African-American cuisine.

Also, "Hattie B's" has always bothered me because it reeks of fake. It was founded and owned by two good ole boy white guys and then named "Hattie B's" to give an illusion of some older African-American woman back in the kitchen whipping up hot chicken.

Not usually one to side with those who cry "cultural appropriation" at everything, but there is definitely an argument to be made here. At the very least, it is definitely inauthentic.

I've got some sad news for you, but Aunt Jemima does not make the syrup and never did.

Most people know that. The difference is Aunt Jemima was started as a brand in 1889 which we can all agree was a much different era than when Hattie B's was founded in 2012 .

Also, here are some articles on why Aunt Jemima and other similar brands are racist:

You are not wrong, at the end of the day Prince's failed to monetize hot chicken and Hattie B's hit the jackpot. I do think though that Hattie B's product is pretty good.

Am I correct that Prince’s Hot Chicken will also have a location at 5+Broad?

They will have an operation in the food hall, so it won't be a full on restaurant, but available.

OK so that we are on the same page here then, only Prince's Nashville Hot Chicken is authentic then? Or any hot chicken place older than a decade? Two decades? 

 

Could you tell me what restaurants in Chicago serves authentic Chicago Deep Dish? Don't you dare give me a restaurant that open after 1960 though!

Saying Prince's is the only one that is "authentic" isn't right.  You can say it was the first...it is the best...is the original...but to call all others fake or racist (if you're not African American) is just wrong.

Convene, a rapidly growing co-working brand out of NYC,  is pursuing it's first location in Nashville at the 5th & Broadway office tower. No word on how much space they will be leasing.
