There’s quite a buzz going on by food lovers not only here in Nashville but all over the country about Cat Bird Seat. Chefs Erik Anderson and Josh Habiger are the artists getting the attention with their unusual and progressive approach to fine dining. While I’ve not yet had the privilege of dining at Cat Bird Seat, I did get to spend a couple hours there one afternoon on assignment for Bon Appetit magazine.
Bon Appetit featured Cat Bird Seat as one of “The Hot 10 – America’s Best New Restaurants” in their September 2012 issue.
In the short time I spent there with Chef Erik and Chef Josh I immediately saw their commitment to the art of preparation and presentation. Everything is thought out with great intention. I’ll be honest, the idea of Roasted Pigeon (featured in the photo I took) doesn’t really get me excited, but I certainly do appreciate their approach—and that might just convince me to at least try it. No offense…I’ll just hold out for the crème brûlée.
Until then, bon appetit!
