Chef Tyler Brown: Local Boy Makes Good (Food)

Nashville's own Tyler Brown of the Hermitage Hotel's Capitol Grille has been named one of Four New Chefs to watch in Esquire's Best New Restaurants 2011 issue. In praise of Brown, John Mariani says, 

"Using a 66-acre farm for most of his provender, Brown shows how far southern cooking has come without losing what made it great in the first place."

This isn't your average farm-to-table operation though, as Tyler Brown, in addition to his duties as head chef, created the garden at Glen Leven and does much of the dirty work (planting, weeding, harvesting) himself. We'll definitely be stopping in for his signature sweet onion bisque soon, as well as spending some quality time in the unspoiled art deco bathroom adjacent to the Oak Bar downstairs - the shoe-shine station is an ideal place to take a seat and hold forth about politics and other manly matters.
