Chef Jason Zygmont’s Setsun takes over the food and beverage side of things at East Nashville’s Van Dyke Bed & Beverage starting Thursday, June 18. Zygmont now fuses that fan favorite agnolotti and other tasting menu standouts with homemade bagels and schmear in all-day cafe form at the Five Points hotel.
When the global impact of coronavirus started coming into focus back in March just after the devastating tornado, the Setsun team was already in the midst of a pre-planned jump from their weekly pop-up at Sky Blue Cafe to the more permanent home at the trendy hotel. In fact, just hours before the tornado, Setsun did a pop-up in the Van Dyke space. Then during the restaurant shutdown, Zygmont sold homemade bagels plus jars of salsa macha, and salsa Calabria via his personal Instagram, for contactless pick-up.
Now Zygmont and the team are ready to get settled into the new space at 105 S 11th Street— which also brings the addition of breakfast and lunch menus. Now diners can feast on Eater Nashville’s 2019 Dish of the Year ricotta agnolotti in daytime hours too — alongside bagel sandwiches, egg drops soups, and more on the breakfast and lunch menus.
The dinner menu looks quite familiar, with fan favorites like the pole bean Caesar, oysters with green curry mignonette, beef tartare, and aforementioned agnolotti. A cast of interesting wines including skin contact and co-ferments are still available by the half-glass, glass, or bottle. In the new location diners now have cocktail options, too.
During day time hours, Setsun will be counter service, with seating first come, first served. For dinner, reservations are available on OpenTable and via the Setsun website. Hours are Monday, Thursday, and Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., then 5 to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
