Following Nashville’s notable loss of International Market’s beloved Patti Myint, the Nashville Scene shared details of a pop-up tribute this December in her honor at sister restaurant Blvd just across Belmont. After closing Blvd for the month of November to pause and regroup, Patti’s children Arnold and Anna Myint opted to share their mothers spirit and passion with the city she spent much of her life feeding well.
Opening December 3 for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., the Belmont pop-up lovingly dubbed ‘Patti’s Pop-Up Too” will serve dishes her children remember eating from childhood. Arnold spent hours in the kitchen with staff perfecting the menu, a tribute to his mother. Look for dishes like a five-spiced braised pork stew, heirloom potato peanut penang, and yellow sour curried cauliflower. Arnold told the Scene that prices would be as his mother would have preferred — affordable so that anyone can come.
It’s the sequel to a pop-up hosted earlier this year sharing some of Patti’s preferred foods, but this time it’s obviously much more sentimental for the Myint family.
In Patti’s honor, 25% of food sales from the pop-up will be donated to The Nashville Food Project. In addition to dishes served with Patti in mind, a curated market will sell gifts like ones found across the street at International Market. Reservations are not required to attend the pop-up.
