New York City celebrity chef Jonathan Waxman continues to expand his restaurant stable, with word coming today that he, along with Vector Management founder Ken Levitan, are teaming up with the Country Music Hall of Fame to open Bajo Sexto, a casual taco eatery, inside the Hall.
Waxman, who partnered earlier this year with Levitan to open his first Nashville outpost, Adele's, in the Gulch, has long had a love of Mexican cuisine, having grown up in El Cerrito, Calif. and describing it as his "go-to comfort food."
In a statement, reps for Bajo Sexto (which means "sixth bass," the largest guitar used in a Mariachi band) say that it will be open daily (including late-night hours) and offer a limited menu, including tacos, flautas and hand-made tortillas, as well as wine on tap, beer and margaritas. Eater also hears that the space will be relatively small, with roughly 30 seats and an outdoor patio.
The restaurant is scheduled for an early Spring opening, so be sure to check back for more updates and intel.
