Local chicken restaurant has new name

Huey’s Nashville Hot Chicken today announced its plans to rebrand its Murray Hill restaurant as Bold Birds Nashville Hot Chicken, effective September 1, 2021.

The fast-casual eatery has seen strong success since its grand opening in May of 2020 at 1173 Edgewood Avenue S. The 3,100-square-foot foodie favorite, voted Best New Restaurant and Best Takeout 2020 by Folio Weekly, is a spicy taste of Nashville that features both indoor and outdoor seating. The menu highlights a myriad of hot chicken dishes — including the classic hot chicken, entrĂ©e salad versions and Southern sides, alongside six beers on tap, including local brews from Tabula Rasa and Bold City Brewery.

Nashville native Hughes Brown opened the restaurant to bring a taste of home with him when he relocated with his wife back to her hometown of Jacksonville. The team has grown steadily, bringing more than 25 jobs to the historic neighborhood. The new name is a way to honor their commitment to Jacksonville, by combining its “Bold New City of the South” nickname with the restaurant’s signature dish. This change uniquely positions the popular restaurant for future growth in and out of the market.

“Murray Hill has welcomed us completely, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to continue to grow in this great neighborhood,” said Brown. “We’ve been embraced and want to expand on the success of our little chicken joint. Rebranding to Bold Birds was an easy choice, being in the Bold City, and we can’t wait to invite everyone in to try us out if they haven’t already. For those who have, we look forward to keeping the fire burning. We may have a new name, but we’re still hotter than a mother clucker.”

Hot chicken dates back to the 1930s here in the United States, and the Brown family has perfected their popular offerings over the last year — including the top-selling hot chicken sandwich. Patrons can enjoy heat levels ranging from classic to hotter than a motherclucker, the eatery’s spiciest option. The restaurant also offers classic Southern dessert options, such as banana pudding and key lime pie, to cool you down at the end of your meal.

Bold Birds is currently hiring for both front- and back-of-house staff. Interested candidates can apply by email. For more information, or to order takeout or delivery, visit HERE.
