Nicky's Coal Fired

Restaurant In The Home Series: Pt. 5

With the fifth installment of our Restaurant In The Home series, we're heading to Nashville (virtually, of course) for a collab with Music City's most beloved Italian eatery: Nicky's Coal Fired. Boasting the only coal-burning oven in Tennessee, Nicky's is where Chef/Owner Tony Galzin pays tribute to his great-grandfather, who immigrated to the U.S. from Lazio, Italy. Before planting roots in Nashville, Chef Galzin honed his craft in Chicago at Naha (Michelin-starred) and mk (under James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Kornick). His extensive training has certainly paid off, as Nicky's has garnered nothing but glowing praise form Nashville's food press for its contemporary take on classic Italian cuisine. The restaurant is regularly featured in Eater Nashville's "38 Essentials" List and was selected as Nashville Scene's Restaurant of the Year '17. Did we mention that Chef Galzin also won Eater's prestigious Chef of the Year Award in 2015? He'll be welcoming us into his home for this class where he'll be teaching us how to cook a 3-course Italian meal showcasing a few of his favorite Nicky's dishes.
