Tailor Nashville, a high-touch dining experience from culinary creator Vivek Surti, opens Thursday, December 6, 2018, in Germantown. Surti, a Nashvillian known for his widely popular pop-up dinners called VEA Supper Club, will host two exclusive dinner services at 6:00pm and 8:30pm every Thursday through Sunday at his new restaurant concept. Heather Southerland (Frothy Monkey) is also a partner in the venture. Nashville Guru got a look inside the space.
Tailor’s interior features handcrafted tables, plush seating, a large chef’s table (named Zarna, after Surti’s sister), and a bar area. Guests will automatically be drawn to the massive 64-bulb crystal chandelier from Surti’s childhood home, which is the centerpiece of the restaurant.
Tailor is located in the back portion of the Mop / Broom Mess Hall building. Walk around back and up the ramp to Tailor’s entrance. A host will greet you when you walk through the door.
The dinner party-like experience will have a rotating South Asian American menu showcasing Western Indian Gujarati dishes, spiked punch drinks, and other nods to Surti’s heritage. The ticketed dinners include eight to ten dishes, brief stories and explanations between courses, and optional drink pairings from the full bar. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated. For more details on how it all works, see the FAQ page.
