Sam Fox’s Doughbird Now Open in Nashville

Pizza? Chicken? Sauces? What's not to like?

Sam Fox has opened another concept in Nashville, this time in the Hill Center in Green Hills — Doughbird. Fox is the James Beard-nominated restaurateur behind The Twelve Thirty Club, Pushing Daisies and Blanco Cocina + Cantina.

The new restaurant opened to the public on Wednesday, February 1. Doughbird combines the best of both worlds, different styles of pizza and chicken with yummy sauces and unexpected ingredients.  

“We’re so excited to continue the growth in Nashville and open at Hill Center Green Hills,” said Sam Fox, founder of Fox Restaurant Concepts. “Doughbird is such a fun place to be. You really can’t go wrong with delicious pizza, crispy chicken, a good happy hour – there’s something for everyone!” 

The food 

At Doughbird, guests can expect a variety of everything from hand-stretched pizza to crispy chicken tenders, and Detroit-style square pan pizza to rotisserie chicken and wings cooked low and slow. Think pizza toppings like roasted onions, mozzarella, arugula & truffle or seasonal items like brussel sprouts & butternut squash. House-made sauces include honey mustard, spicy buffalo, chicken gravy and umami sauce. Guests can dip and dunk pizza and chicken to their heart’s desires.

The hot new spot is outfitted with a large bar, perfect for watching a game or grabbing a quick drink. It’s a perfect spot for any and every event, from a family meal on the fly to a birthday celebration or even a last-minute happy hour date. 

And by the way, the happy hour alone is a reason to visit. Guests can fly in to enjoy classic, mouth-watering items like the cheeseburger, truffle cheese bread and crunchy chicken tenders. Wash it all down with sippers like the $5 Green Hills sangria or a $5 glass of wine.

Find Doughbird at 4031 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville. Hours of operation are Sunday-Thursday, 11 am – 9 pm and Friday-Saturday, 11 am – 10 pm.
