TAILOR, the award-winning dinner party-style restaurant from Vivek Surti and Heather Southerland, opened at its new standalone location at 620 Taylor Street in Germantown on Thursday, August 11, 2022. The concept originally opened on December 6, 2018, just blocks away. Surti’s cuisine pays homage to his heritage as a first-generation American of Indian descent, offering a creative menu of South Asian American dishes. During each exclusive two-hour dining experience, guests can expect multiple courses, explanations about each dish, and high-touch service. Nashville Guru got a look inside the fresh space.
TAILOR’s interior offers seats for approximately 40 guests. The new location has many similar characteristics to its previous space, including handcrafted tables, plush seating, and the iconic 64-bulb crystal chandelier from Surti’s childhood home, which remains the centerpiece of the main dining room. Greenery is present throughout. In the front of the restaurant, there’s a separate bar and lounge area with several additional chandeliers mimicking the main dining room.
The dinner party-like experience has 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.
