Rolf and Daughters, the Nashville restaurant which last year earned the number three slot on Bon Appetit’s “best new restaurants in America” list, is planning to occupy Butcher & Bee on June 19 to serve a five-course supper.
According to the event announcement, “The Rolf and Daughters team will be serving a selection of hit dishes from their menu, including their dynamite handmade pasta.”
Butcher & Bee’s Nadya Freire says additional menu details are still being developed, but “we’d like to take advantage of seasonality as much as possible. We definitely want to source some great local ingredients for the menu, both on the produce and protein side.” She mentions Abundant Seafood and Grassroots Wine as possible partners.
High Wire Distilling Co. will provide a cocktail tasting before the second seating; Butcher & Bee is handling the accompanying snacks, as well as the salad and dessert courses at dinner.
Philip Krajeck — a Floridian who grew up in Belgium, and later parlayed the pasta prowess he honed abroad into multiple appearances on the James Beard Foundation’s “longlist” of potential award recipients — aimed to showcase “modern peasant fare” when he opened Rolf and Daughters in 2013.
“When I tried Krajeck’s takes, like the earthy hand-cut farro gemelli with mushrooms, kale, and Parmesan…I was mesmerized,” Bon Appetit’s Andrew Knowlton wrote. “His rustic sauces and house-made doughs—some flavored with whole grain flours, others, like the garganelli verde, green from fresh spinach—are standouts in a crowded field.”
The 6 p.m. dinner is priced at $59.66 with fees; the 8:30 p.m. seating, which includes wine pairings, is $91.52. The restaurant’s standard BYOB policy will be rescinded for the evening, but beer and wine will be available for purchase.
