Evelyn’s recently opened its doors at the Hutton Hotel with a focus on modern American fare. The downtown dining room pays homage to Evelyn Sharp, a 20th-century hotelier, investor, socialite, and art collector, with fine art reminiscent of Evelyn’s personal collection. The restaurant, which features a mid-century modern aesthetic, showcases a dinner menu that includes shareable snacks and small plates, like steak tartare, Nashville hot fish and chips, and desserts such as drop biscuit cobbler, s’mores chocolate cake, and Evelyn’s Sundae for Two.

Evelyn’s, which officially began service last week, will be open daily for breakfast, brunch, and dinner beginning at 7 a.m.

A meat lover’s feast at 404 Kitchen

On Wednesday, September 13, the 404 Kitchen will be hosting the inaugural “Meat, Meat, and More Meat Torres Spanish Wine Dinner” in conjunction with Familia Torres wines. The menu will feature four meat-centric courses focused on Southern heritage cooking with a European twist. The menu includes Bear Creek Farm head cheese, lamb tartare, dry-aged steak, and dolce de leche with orange duck fat caramel. Each course will feature a select wine and cocktail pairing by Familia Torres. Tickets are $125 per person and are available here.

After the meats, you veg

After 404 Kitchen’s fully loaded protein extravaganza, balance your cosmic culinary scales by putting some veggies on your plate. Helping you achieve that: Nashville VegFest. Taking place this Sunday, September 17, the family-friendly, plant-based food festival brings food trucks, live music, face painting, and a family fun zone with cornhole, Jenga, and football target toss to East Park. The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. — admission is free.

Mezcal takes center stage at Superica

Superica’s Gulch location is celebrating Mezcal Week with a focus on the smokey, agave-based Mexican spirit through unique mezcal cocktails, mezcal flights, and food pairing suggestions. The mezcal cocktail menu shines a light on the complex spirit through cocktails like the Dessert in the Desert made with mezcal, Kahlua, cream, banana syrup, and mole bitters; the Mezcal Margarita with mezcal, triple sec, and fresh lime juice; and The Highwayman, a riff off the Old-Fashioned using mezcal, mole bitters, and coffee beans. Superica’s Mezcal Week runs through Friday, September 15.

Experience a burger-fueled time machine at the Pharmacy Burger

The Pharmacy Burger is taking it old-school with a new burger series called the “Nashville Burger Time Machine.” The long-time local burger joint is paying tribute to classic Nashville restaurants that’ve closed by resurrecting some of their dishes or making a burger inspired by them. The nostalgic restaurants being remembered include Rotier’s Restaurant, Gold Rush, Edgefield Sports Bar & Grill, King Solomon Gyros, Arnold’s Country Kitchen, and Omni Hut. September’s specialty burger honors Rotier’s Restaurant with its famous Rotier’s Burger — a beef patty with extra cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles served on French bread. The specialty burgers in this series will be offered at both the McFerrin Avenue and the Assembly Food Hall locations.
