CITY WINERY RELEASES NEW SEASONAL WINTER MENUS
Executive Chef Garrett Pittler Introduces New Seasonal Dishes, Cold Weather Classics
NASHVILLE, TENN. (November 15, 2016) – Just in time for the cooler weather, City Winery, the downtown Nashville restaurant, music venue and urban winery, has released all new menus now available in the restaurant as well as in the music and event venues. Created by City Winery Executive Chef Garrett Pittler, the new menus highlight seasonal ingredients and classic cold weather comfort food.
“As the temperatures drop, people begin craving warmer, heartier dishes, so we’ve incorporated many of the typical winter combinations you’re used to eating during the winter months, along with a few seasonal surprises,” says Pittler. “With these new menus, we also still keep a focus on shareable dishes and smaller plates influenced by the culinary traditions of the wine regions where many of our grapes are sourced from.”
The music and event venue menu highlights include small plates such as Duck Confit Tacos made with a cilantro slaw on house-made tortillas; Southern Burrata, a unique take on a traditional burrata with pimento cheese; and Pinot Noir Caramelized Pork Belly. New larger plates include Pork and Porcini Meatballs over squid ink tagliatelle and pork belly served Carbonara style, and Pittler’s own City Winery Ratatouille.
Diners in the restaurant can expect similar items with several additional entrees such as Peruvian Purple Potato Gnocchi with beet hash, walnuts and sage brown butter; Pan Seated Halibut over red quinoa risotto; and Chicken Cacciatore served with wild mushrooms and mashed potatoes. Dessert includes sweet options like Nutella Pizza, Bacon Bourbon Cashew Cracker Jacks and a daily selection of Nitro Ice Cream.
The City Winery weekend brunch menu was also revamped to reflect the change of season. Hungry brunchers can choose from morning classics such as House-Made Biscuits and Blueberry Corn Muffins, along with a Shaved Chicken Calzonette, Black Hawk Farm Burger, Frosted Flakes Pain Perdu and the City Winery Benedict.
City Winery, located at 609 Lafayette Street, is open for dinner Sunday through Thursday, 5 – 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 5-11 p.m., with the bar staying open one hour after the kitchen closes. Weekend brunch is available Saturday and Sunday, 10:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. For more information, visit the website at www.citywinery.com/nashville.
