Nashville's Green Food Scene Gets National Notice on TreeHugger

Posted By on Wed, Jan 18, 2012 at 7:37 AM

The national eco-news website TreeHugger — which is owned by Discovery and describes itself as "the leading media outlet dedicated to driving sustainability mainstream" — has made a discovery of its own: Nashville's vibrantly evolving food scene.

Under the headline "Local, Home-grown and Farm-to-Table Eateries Sprouting in Nashville" California-based writer Roberta Cruger checks off a list of locavore and eco-friendly food and restaurant developments in Nashville, including the Nashville Originals, our current Restaurant Week, certified green restaurant Tayst, the Nashville Farmers' Market, Las Paletas, Olive & Sinclair and Corsair distillery.

The most space was devoted to the Capitol Grille at the Hermitage Hotel, more specifically, the chef-run farm at the historic Glen Leven estate that supplies the Capitol Grille with fresh vegetables.

Cruger managed to botch the names of the Capitol Grille chefs — as of this writing, the site conflates Tyler Brown and his sous chef Cole Ellis into the erroneous "Tyler Cole" — but it's nice to be noticed, and they'll probably spot the goof and fix it soon.
