The Brasserie is the main dining room of Hotel 1928, the luxe 33-room inn created by Chip and Joanna Gaines, the Waco stars of HGTV’s hit show Fixer Upper. That media exposure means that not only is the hotel usually booked solid, the Brasserie also is extremely popular, so online dinner reservations are a must. Huge windows look out onto Washington Avenue and North Seventh, letting southeastern light and city views in all day. Like the rest of the hotel, the dining room has  a luxurious but not ostentatious feel, with comfortable chairs and banquette booths spaced for privacy and a laid-back music playlist of boomer-adjacent tunes that won’t hinder conversation. The kitchen puts a Southern accent on the food, including chicken-fried steak and shrimp and grits (Dr Pepper even flavors a few items). Top choices for dinner include honey-and-soy glazed salmon (with rice and brussels sprouts) and bow-tie pasta with broccoli rabe, Parmesan, and chile flakes.  (If ordering the latter, skip the option of house-made sausage, oddly mild and sweet). Do not pass up dessert, especially the orange creamsicle ice-box pie with toasted meringue. (If you’re really curious, the remodeling of the old hostelry can be followed in its own show, Fixer Upper: The Hotel, streaming on Max.)
