‘Grass Fed Sundays’ at The Sutler begin October 12
Weekly event with family-style suppers & live bluegrass
October 6, 2014 – The Sutler Saloon will host ‘Grass Fed Sundays,’ a weekly family-style supper, starting October 12. Each Sunday from 4:30 to 10:00 p.m., ‘Grass Fed Sundays’ will feature a rotating family-style dinner special from executive chef Nick Seabergh, live music, and local drink specials.
Designed to feed four to six people, each Sunday supper will feature a main dish and three sides for a set price. The menu for October 12 includes Tennessee Hickory Smoked “Beast” Loaf: fresh ground TN pork shoulder and Bear Creek Beef wrapped in bacon, smoked in the hickory pits smoker with TN Brew Works pan dripping gravy. Caramelized brussels sprouts accompany the dish, and guests choose two more shareable veggie dishes from the regular menu.
“The family-style setting is ideal for sharing a meal and conversation around the supper table,” said Austin Ray, owner of The Sutler. “Chef Nick has fond memories of his own family’s Sunday meals, and he will pull inspiration from his native Mississippi as well as other parts of the South and West when preparing the weekly menus. As the title indicates, ‘Grass Fed Sundays’ will feature the bounty of the season in a soulful dinner.”
Attendees will enjoy live bluegrass, string-band, and old-time music, featuring a rotating cast of local musicians. The lineup for October 12 includes the Amanda Fields Bluegrass Band from 5:00-7:15 p.m., and The Farmer & Adele from 7:30-10:00 p.m.
“The lineup will be locally focused by design,” said Ray. “We are a local establishment, our patrons are locals, and it’s important to us to feature local musicians. The sound will be prime for diners to enjoy the music while still able to carry on a conversation. This will be a fun, laid-back way to end the weekend – every weekend.”
Carrying out the local theme, The Sutler has partnered with TN Brew Works to feature a rotating craft beer special each week. Southern batch cocktails will be available by the carafe to share at the table.
“Sunday supper is a longtime tradition in the South, and we will offer a warm welcome, hearty meal, and amazing music in a way that only a Nashville establishment can,” said Ray.
‘Grass Fed Sundays’ is open to all ages. Menu and music lineup are subject to change.
About The Sutler
The Sutler is a historic, spirited saloon and restaurant featuring drinks, dining, and live music on two floors of a historic Nashville building. Our Saloon level features Southern craft cocktails, craft beer on tap, and creative, fresh cuisine inspired by the South & West from our hickory smoker and wood grill. We feature authentic live music with a distinctly Nashville sound. Our Cellar bar features its own craft cocktail and draft beer menu, lounge seating, a fireplace, and space for private events for up to 200 guests. The historic Sutler was originally opened in 1976 by country radio personality Johnny Potts. Part venue, part restaurant, and part dive bar, the Sutler was a social hub for locals and the Nashville music community, as well as a way point for travelers and touring acts from far and wide. The Sutler played hosts to countless musicians, artists, and acts in its lifetime, including Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Don Everly, Buzz Cason, Emmylou Harris, and Johnny Cash. The Sutler’s original location opened in the same historic Melrose theater building where it stands today. In 2014 it was reopened and reimagined by restaurateur Austin Ray and the building’s developer and restorer, Joe Parkes Jr. Native Nashvillians Ray and Parkes were former patrons of the original Sutler and brought it back to life as part of a massive arts, dining, and urban living revival of the Melrose neighborhood and the 8th Avenue corridor.
