With the very recent announcement of Sean Brock's new restaurant project, the Stables at Husk, there is plenty of room to speculate on what can be expected. In a conversation with Eater Nashville, Brock elaborated on the many roles and functions the Stables will play. First, on the Workshop Sessions, his planned dining series:
The Sessions are my brainchild. I wanted somewhere to play, have fun. And I've always wanted a small restaurant where I'm tasting every dish, touching every plate, talking with every guest. I'm really excited about that, and my plan is to do a lot of them, make it a main focus over the next two years.
Brock says that he plans on using Twitter to announce the dinners, the first of which could be as soon as next week. They will feature "between 10 and 20 courses of more progressive cuisine, things that [they] wouldn't necessarily be able to do in the main restaurant." Seating will most likely be limited to 15 to 18 tickets per event in order to keep the personal, small restaurant feel he is looking for.
Along with the guest chef dinners, in which Brock plans to bring "incredible chefs from around the world to Nashville, as well as feature chefs that don't typically get the attention and recognition," the Stables will also be available for use as a pop-up restaurant for both out-of-town and local chefs. (No names yet on the guest chefs, but Brock did mention that the first one will be someone "really, really big.")
The space will have yet another function as a private dining area, for those that want a more customized experience, as well as a place for Husk Nashville to accommodate larger parties.
Be sure to check back for future updates and announcements.
