Once again, celebrities are attempting to infiltrate the Nashville dining scene once again. This time it’s not just country music stars. According to a recently filed building permit, spotted by the Nashville Business Journal, Colorado-based steak place E3 Chophouse wants to take a space in Village 21 at Regions Park development. E3 Chophouse hitches its name to host of celebrities, including a member of Duck Dynasty.
According to the website, professional baseball brother-owners Jeff, Adam, and Andy LaRoche have connected with country singers Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan, and Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson.
E3 Chophouse currently operates a location in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Steaks for the restaurant come from the LaRoche family ranch in Fort Scott, Kansas.
Judging from reactions to Eater Nashville’s recent article “Jason Aldean Unleashes Latest Country Music Star-Branded Tourist Trap,” the community isn’t so impressed with these celebrity endeavors. Comments ranged from the vomit emoji to a “No Hard Pass” gif.
