Chattanooga-based chef and restaurateur Daniel Lindley said today he plans to open his first restaurant in Nashville.
The new 5th at Taylor Place is scheduled to open this fall in historic Germantown and will serve dinner daily, featuring a regional and seasonally focused American menu. Inspired by Lindley's culinary background and creative endeavors, 5th & Taylor will have an eclectic atmosphere in a 96-year-old barrel roof warehouse, formerly part of an old textile bag plant and cotton mill.
"I've spent a good amount of time in Nashville over the years and consider it an extension of home" Lindley said in a statement today. "I'm excited to bring this unique restaurant to Nashville's expanding market. It's my hope that 5th & Taylor will complement the amazing restaurants in Germantown and maintain the relaxed vibe of the neighborhood."
Lindley, a former executive chef and owner of the St John's restaurant in Chattanooga, has been sketching the renderings for the interior and exterior of the Nashville restaurant for the past year. Partnering with interior designer, Ruth De Jong, an L.A. based production designer, painter and interior decorator for notable restaurants like Son of a Gun, the space will incorporate many artistic elements .Architect Smith Gee and SWH Residential Partners will execute plans for the 6,200 square foot interior that will include a main dining room, two private dining areas and an outdoor patio and bar, adding an additional 2,500 square feet to the warehouse space. The private dining accommodations will be equipped with state of the art audio visual equipment for business meetings, presentations and social gatherings. Overall, indoor and outdoor seating will accommodate 250 guests.
5th & Taylor will be open daily Monday through Sunday. More information about 5th & Taylor will soon be available at 5thandtaylor.com and djenthospitality.com.
