Former Copper Kettle chef Sean Begin and his wife Linda will launch a new restaurant in Franklin this month. After selling their interest in Copper Kettle earlier this year, the couple are preparing to open Daily Dish, a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, in the former location of Grassland Grille.
With a culinary résumé that includes stints in Vail, Colo., Palm Beach, Fla., and Cape Cod, Mass., chef Sean moved to Nashville in 1994. He worked under chef Willie Thomas at Capitol Grille in the Hermitage Hotel before working for Bound'ry affiliate Big Guns Catering, where he was named Chef of the Year in 2001 by the Tennessee Restaurant Association. In 2002, Begin helped open Copper Kettle.
Daily Dish will combine Begin's various culinary experiences for a menu that includes traditional Southern cuisine, as well as items such as salad with glazed mahi mahi, grilled pesto-and-chicken salad, various sandwiches, paninis and milk shakes.
Located at 2205 Hillsboro Road, Daily Dish will be open Monday through Friday, serving breakfast from 6 to 10 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. For updates on the restaurant opening, call 791-1255.
