NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tailor Nashville, the award winning South Asian American dinner party style restaurant, is extending its residency at The Nashville Food Project for the month of October as a continuation to its fall calendar of pop-up events while the build-out of its new Taylor Street Development location takes place. Throughout the month of October, Tailor will serve its fall menu every Friday and Saturday at both 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., as well as Sundays at 7 p.m. at The Nashville Food Project, located at 5904 California Ave. With this extended residency, Woodland Wine Merchant has partnered with Tailor to curate the wine pairings for the fall menu as another way to bring the community together and further elevate the guest experience.
A portion of proceeds from these dinners will support the efforts of The Nashville Food Project’s ongoing work, which includes efforts such as its Community Meals program that prepares and shares thousands of scratch-made, nutritious meals in collaboration with community partners, and an urban agriculture program that supports families in growing food for themselves and for market.
“The community feel of our first pop-up dinner series at The Nashville Food Project last month perfectly encapsulated what Tailor is all about, so we are thrilled to continue this unique experience that supports such a deserving organization,” said Tailor’s Culinary Creator Vivek Surti. “Bringing in our friends at Woodland Wine is just the icing on the cake to continue to give our guests an over-the-top memorable experience, and we can’t wait to showcase what they’ve selected to pair with the brand-new fall menu.”
