Earlier this month, Butcher and Bee held a 'Nashville preview dinner' at their Charleston location, giving diners a chance to try select dishes destined for the Nashville outpost. And from the looks of the menu they posted, they are making good on their promise to "further explor[e] and expand the [M]iddle [E]astern flavors and influences on [their] menu."
Recently tapped chef Eyhab "Happy" Hatab certainly looks to be using his Egyptian background to heavily influence the direction of the menu. Starters range from babaganoush to a wreckfish sandwich and eggplant mas'aa, a popular Egyptian dish, with prices coming in between $8 and $12. Sandwich options include a lamb pita and a sabich, which traditionally consists of a pita stuffed with fried eggplant and hard boiled eggs. Shared entrees run the gamut from a $24 whole grilled beeliner to chicken seasoned with dukkah, an Egyptian spice blend.
Additional preview dinners are planned, so be on the lookout for more updates in the near future.
