Nicky's Coal Fired

5-Course Elevated Italian Dinner Event

“Enrico,” a custom-built, 4.5-ton coal-burning oven, is the heart and soul of Nicky’s Coal Fired, housed in an old hosiery mill in West Nashville. The only coal-burning oven in Tennessee, “Enrico” is named for Chef Tony Galzin’s great-grandfather, who immigrated to the U.S. from Lazio, Italy. Chef Galzin, whose resume includes stints at such Chicago institutions as Michelin-starred Naha, Michelin-Bib Gourmand winning Perennial, and mk, where he worked with four-time James Beard Award-nominated chef Michael Kornick, relies on “Enrico” to turn out memorable meals that draws upon his Italian heritage. Devising a seasonal menu that sources only sustainably caught seafood and local meats, Chef Galzin shows why his first eatery, Fifty-First Kitchen & Bar, was named best new restaurant by Nashville Scene and why he was named Eater Nashville’s Chef of the Year. “Splendid dining,” says Nashville Scene of Nicky’s Coal Fired, and you’ll be sure to agree when we take over the restaurant for our event. Chef Galzin will be on hand to answer your questions and introduce you to the splendors of coal-fired cooking.
