6-Course Ode to Old Nashville Dinner Series
Opened two years ago in the historic Printer’s Alley neighborhood, Black Rabbit is Executive Chef/Owner Trey Cioccia’s homage to the 1900’s speakeasies that once dominated downtown Nashville. Housed in a vintage building with 16-foot ceilings, exposed brick, and original hardwood flooring, Black Rabbit specializes in small plates like mushroom tamales, charred brussels sprouts, and roasted cauliflower, but has plenty of protein to go around as well, from roasted chicken and trout to brisket, bone-in ribeye, and extraordinary “rabbit rolls.” Chef Cioccia, a native of nearby Mt. Juliet, gave Nashville his celebrated The Farm House restaurant. Now, at Black Rabbit, he is reaping hosannas from restaurant reviewers like Ashley Brantley at the Nashville Scene, who references the “wild, wonderful bites” and salutes food that is “unique, delicious, and real.” We will be taking over Black Rabbit for this event, and Chef Cioccia will be in and out of the kitchen to answer your questions and discuss his commitment to preserving a precious piece of Nashville history.
About the Host:
Executive Chef & Owner
Chef Cioccia's fondness for humble Southern ingredients comes directly from his roots in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Raised on his family's 100-acre farm, he channels his ingrained love of fresh, local ingredients into all of his restaurants. He opened his first restaurant, The Farm House, in 2013, following its success up with Black Rabbit in November 2017.
