Chef Jason Zygmont Departs Treehouse in May to Launch Pop-Up Series

More details to come on what’s next for the chef and for Treehouse

Jason Zygmont

Executive chef Jason Zygmont is departing Treehouse restaurant to launch a pop-up series at another (yet to be revealed) East Nashville restaurant. His final night at Treehouse will be Saturday, May 18.

In a statement sent to Eater Nashville, Zygmont doesn’t reveal many details just yet regarding what’s next, but says his new pop-up series will begin in late May or early June. The pop-up dinners will feature a small menu offering 10 or so small plates, reminiscent of dishes he offered at Treehouse. He’ll focus on serving a “fun, rotating list of natural wine” to pair with the small plates.

Zygmont spent three years in the kitchen at the charming Treehouse restaurant, making the menu his own, and serving unique and stunning dishes not found anywhere else in Nashville. He says he’s taking the menu in a new direction during his last weeks at the restaurant, so to pop in “sooner than later” to secure those favorite dishes a final time before he departs for his next project.

Zygmont adds “I am incredibly proud of the work that we do at the Treehouse and am in debt to all of our current and previous staff that has made it what it is. It has been my great joy to work with Nashville’s farm community and serve the hunger for quality food that Nashville’s dining public has shown. Thank you for all of the support over the past few years. Looking forward to serving everyone at my next project,”

Treehouse owner Matthew Spicher says they’ll have a new chef announcement soon.
