NEW SYLVAN PARK RESTAURANT OPENS EARLY APRIL
April 4 marks first day for public to get a taste of answer’s inspired neighborhood restaurant
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashvillians constantly asking “what’s for dinner?” will have a new answer beginning Monday, April 4. The new Sylvan Park restaurant, answer, will open its doors to the public next month in the 2,300-square-foot space located at 132 46th Ave. North in the heart of Sylvan Park.
“Our vision for answer is to be a high-end, yet approachable neighborhood spot where families and friends connect,” said Victoria Rothberg, co-owner and general manager of answer. “The name for our restaurant really represents connecting and how a simple “how was your day?” turns into a much more meaningful conversation around the dinner table.
The menu will offer items ranging from $5 to $30 and will have a large percentage of shareable plates, with specialties favorites to include small plates such as Asian inspired arancini, Mediterranean roasted octopus and tostones with house-made chicken chorizo, along with entrees of house-made pasta, burgers ground in house and a nightly fresh fish feature. The bar will feature wine, beer and house-made cocktails. Dinner service will be offered Tuesday through Sunday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The restaurant is co-owned by Victoria Rothberg and Chris Raucci who will serve as executive chef. Rothberg and Raucci have had aspirations for answer since their time working together at a Ted’s Montana Grill opening three years ago. Rothberg’s strengths in the front of house balanced Raucci’s talents in the kitchen, and the duo sketched out the idea for answer on a receipt nearly three years ago, falling in love with the Nashville culinary scene soon thereafter.
answer will be comfortable and modern, with interior design by San Francisco-based Hannah Collins Designs who incorporated custom furniture from Chattanooga’s Range Project into the 75-seat restaurant. A central focus in the center of the restaurant will be the 22-seat wrap-around bar. With time, answer plans to offer 28 more seats on their outdoor patio.
answer is a neighborhood restaurant set to open in the heart of Sylvan Park in April 2017. It will be owned and operated by restaurant industry veterans Victoria Rothberg, who will serve as the general manager, and Chris Raucci, who will run the kitchen as executive chef. answer will serve dinner Tuesday through Sunday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. answer is located at 132 46th Ave. North and online at www.answerrestaurant.com.
