Pioneering Gulch restaurant and wine bar Flyte World Dining & Wine is in its final days, according to the Nashville Scene. The Scene shares that the final day of service at the longtime restaurant is on Saturday, June 22.
The news isn’t totally shocking, as current chef Chris Stallard made plans to depart Nashville later this month. Stallard followed a long line of notable Nashville chefs with tenure in the Flyte kitchen — including Matt Bolus, Tony Galzin, John Lasater, and Hrant Arakelian, among others.
Flyte’s co-owner Scott Atkinson told the Scene that the closure is not market-based — unless it’s real estate under discussion. Atkinson told the Scene that he and Sears entered into an agreement selling the balance of their lease to their landlords at Southeast Venture.
No news yet on what is to come next for the prime Gulch real estate. In the meantime, chime in with what you think the Nashville dining scene is missing.
