Nashville Hot Chicken, Meet LA Waffles || Eat Seeker: Little Octopus

There’s more to a dish than what’s served on a plate. A chef’s food can act as a voice to share a story, whether that be a tale of identity crisis or a struggle to find a place in an established cuisine. Eat Seeker delves deeper into the meaning behind the dishes that represent the chef and looks at what motivates their cuisine.

At Little Octopus, Chef Sarah Gavigan believes feel-good food should not only be approachable and comforting but also healthy. At her Nashville restaurant, she combines her Southern upbringing with her love of Los Angeles cuisine to create dishes like hot chicken and waffles, avocado salad with sour orange, and miso caponata with a Japanese flair.
