Long time local chef Trey Cioccia has revealed details for the follow-up project to his successful SoBro restaurant The Farm House, as he plans to open restaurant and bar Black Rabbit near downtown’s Printers Alley.
Located at 218 Third Avenue North right next to the currently under construction 21C Museum Hotel, Cioccia tells the Tennessean that his new venture, housed in a property built in 1890 and named after a now-defunct New York speakeasy, “will conjure up the blues and jazz age of Printers Alley in its heyday of the 1920's.” Kitchen offerings will focus on small plates, ranging from canapes to a wood-fired bread program, with cocktails being the bar focus.
The 3,800-square-foot restaurant will seat roughly 122 guests, with another 20 to 30 seats available on an outdoor patio.
Cioccia also has some new partners in his latest project, as The Farm House team members Robert Compton (chef de cuisine), Chad Kelly (sous chef) and Larry Sinclair (general manager) all have equal ownership in Black Rabbit.
Still in the early stages, the hope is to open spring 2017.
