The Dutch, a restaurant from James Beard Award-winning chef Andrew Carmellini and NoHo Hospitality, officially opened on Wednesday, October 6, 2021. The all-day dining destination is located on the ground level of the new W Nashville in the Gulch. This is the second outpost for the concept, which also has a location in New York City. Guests can expect American cuisine using seasonal ingredients. Nashville Guru stopped by to get a look inside.
The restaurant was designed by Rockwell Group, a New York City-based architecture and design firm. Highlights of the space include a beautiful island bar with hanging greenery, a central fireplace, multiple dining spaces, a large semi-private dining room, and a variety of seating with capacity for up to 153 guests.
The Dutch has two exterior patios—one along 12th Avenue South and the other facing Laurel Street. Valet parking is available at the W Nashville, and there’s also a paid parking lot directly across the street that offers the first hour free.
The Dutch is currently open for breakfast, dinner, and weekend brunch. Lunch will be available soon. For breakfast, guests can order the Brown Butter-Buttermilk Waffle, Avocado Toast, or Crab Cake Benedict paired with a mimosa or AC’s Bloody Mary. On the supper side, options include Roasted Atlantic Halibut, Smoked Beets, and Grilled Hanger Steak, just to name a few. The bar menu leans heavily on bourbons and whiskeys, but there’s a nice selection of wine, beer, and other spirits, too.
The Dutch offers a lively and welcoming atmosphere. Be sure to make a reservation to secure your next meal at this new hotspot in the Gulch. Also keep your eye on this team’s next restaurant, Carne Mare, opening soon.
