Chef Daniel Lindley officially began his first foray into Nashville earlier this week, and the space at 5th and Taylor is unlike anything else in town.
The 250-seater is broken up into four primary spaces: the main dining room, interior bar, private dining and outside seating. Lindley had reportedly been working on design ideas for the project for several years, and partnered with L.A.-based interior design firm De Jong and Co. on the project. Principle Ruth De Jong led the interior design, with brother Peter De Jong creating all of the custom furnishings.
The centerpiece of the room is a life-size hand-applied plaster sculpture representing Nashville's namesake General Francis Nash. The piece was created by Chattanooga-based artist Cessna Decosimo, and depicts General Nash on horseback before his death in the Battle of Germantown in 1777.
The outdoor dining area and bar are not quite up and running yet, but look for that to get going in the near future.
