Coming Soon: Gray & Dudley
Previously in charge of Proof on Main in Louisville, Wallace moved to Nashville March 2015 to open the Germantown location of Cochon Butcher.
We continue to learn more and more about the upcoming concept from 21c. The restaurant's name is an homage to the building's past life, Gray & Dudley Company, a hardware company that resided in Nashville in the early 1900's.
Gray & Dudley will have a "largely communal menu offering guests the opportunity for shared experiences and culinary discoveries", the announcement says. "Wallace's approach is eclectic with a variety of influences inspired by the Mediterranean, regions of France and Italy and his own West Coast Roots."
Focusing on "traditional hearth cooking" that's used across many of these regions, the menu will change frequently offering dishes that are "fresh, bright, simple and playful".
Gray and Dudley will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner daily as well as weekend brunch. In addition to the daily food offerings, guests can choose from a carefully curated wine and cocktail menu which will focus on timeless classics while delivering a few elements of surprise.
At this time, an exact opening date is unknown, but room reservations at 21c Nashville are now available for May 14, 2017. For booking information, click here.
