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.”
