On the heels of Capitol Grille chef Tyler Brown's successful visit to Manhattan, "culinary salon" City Grit has created a "City Spotlight" series dedicated to Nashville talent. Similar to a Beard Dinner, chefs are invited by City Grits organizer Sarah Simmons to cook in a kitchen and cozy dining area in a building tucked into the Bowery area of New York City.

City Grit focuses on Southern chefs for the most part, and Manhattanites are literally eating it up. The next Music City star to appear will be Tandy Wilson of City House, who will showcase his talents this Tuesday, April 22. Three days later on April 25, Carey Bringle will bring his Peg Leg Porker brand of barbecue to the Big Apple in what should prove to be an entertaining evening.

On May 7, chef Trey Cioccia of The Farm House pays honor to Tennessee ingredients with a six-course dinner, and he's excited to share the best of the Volunteer State with the assembled diners. “I will make New Yorkers feel like they are sitting in my home in Wilson County, Tenn. Every bite is sourced from 21 farms in the Nashville area in keeping with my passion for organic farming.”

If you have any transplanted friends up North who might be pining for home, send them to the City Grit website to grab a ticket at the table.
