The Queens' Table Vol.3
Updated: May 18, 2020
Welcome back to The Queens’ Table, where this month we are celebrating the drag issue of O&A by paying full respect to the supreme beings that entertain us with gowns, gams, guts, and glamour. We brought not just three queens to table, but six sickening entertainers! We also chose a spot that offers more than just dinner but a show, too! The one and only Suzy Wong’s House of Yum!
This Church Street staple is next door to Tribe and Play, Nashville’s iconic destinations for drag. These performers also slay the House of Yum, entertaining while you drink and dine on lavish brunch and dinner. We ordered up a round of Hibiscus Margaritas and I settled in for the performances. “This always gets me going,” Casanova mentioned of the cocktail comprised of Patron Silver, Citronage, and hibiscus complete with a salt and sugar rim. The space is cozy and intimate, providing a "filmed in 4K" level experience. These girls are always painted and poised for action!
As I watched, appetizers arrived. Fresh steamed Edamame, Spring Rolls, and of course, the Wonton Nachos. This killer starter had tender pulled pork, queso blanco, edamame pico, sriracha and red curry crema. It’s definitely a must try. We also gathered around some Honey Sriracha Cauliflower and Warm Brussels Sprouts dressed to perfection with peanuts, Parmesan, scallion, crispy shallot and chili lime sauce. “Oh Yesss Ma’am!,” said Lily as she snatched a bite between shows.
The energy is fever pitch as show after show continues as did the delicious drinks. Next, Cloud 9; a cool and floral mixture of Hendrick’s Gin, St. Germain, cucumber and lemon to excite the palette. Jazelle delighted in the light and fresh Crunchy Shrimp and Avocado Roll before her next set. As the final show began, Anthony (Suzy’s super skilled bartender) surprised us with the cocktail of cocktails. The Dinner Punch Bowl; a fish bowl filled to the gills with vodka, champagne and blue curacao. What a flawless way to end this night of entertainment. This big brilliant beverage is super sharable, enough for two or three. So come thirsty!
The atmosphere at Suzy Wong’s is always spirited and debaucherously magical. The fare and cocktails are just as dazzling as the performers. Suzy's offers some of the most entertaining performances by the most skilled and dedicated queens in town. If you would like to see the best of the best that Nashville drag has to offer, spend some time with the dolls at Suzy Wong’s House of Yum!
Until next time fierce foodies!
Much love and good taste from The Queens’ Table.
