Act Fast — Like Yesterday — to Eat Sean Brock's Food at City House

I'm kicking myself for a couple of reasons. First of all, I'll be out of town over Labor Day weekend so I can't take advantage of the usual deal where I make my own reservation and then tell y'all about a really cool guest chef dinner coming to town. And secondly, I waited too long to share the details with you Bitesters so this dinner was almost sold out as of last night, but hopefully at least some of you can still get in, enjoy the meal, take some pictures and let us all live vicariously through your experience. (Or even better, from a doggie bag.)

Remember when Dana told you a few weeks ago that ex-Nashville chef Sean Brock's Husk had been named the best restaurant in the U.S by Bon Appetit? Well, Chef Brock is bringing his amazing culinary talents back to town for one night only to cook dinner in Tandy Wilson's kitchen for a Sunday supper at City House this weekend on Sept. 4. The family-style dinner begins at 6 p.m., and the meal is ridiculously inexpensive for a chef of his caliber at $90/person, all including tax plus gratuity.

Add to that the fact that Sean will have just returned from a trip to Denmark to experience MAD FoodCamp, where he will have been the guest of host chef René Redzepi of Noma, a restaurant that has been named the best restaurant in the world two years running, and we can only expect that his creative juices will be running full-tilt to share with his old friends here in Nashville.

So call 736-5838 yesterday to try to make reservations. And wear your pants with the Ziploc pockets in case there are any leftovers you'd be willing to share with a huge Sean Brock fan who will be out of town and have to miss this extraordinary event. Dammit.
