The magazine said the "young talent in the world of edibles and potables" in America is so dynamic that the panel (Forbes editors and experts from the business scene) retired last year's list of honorees and came up with a completely new list of notables in the restaurant industry.
Goldberg, who runs Strategic Hospitality (including the nationally celebrated restaurant The Catbird Seat) with his brother Benjamin, is 29. Here's what Forbes says:
The Nashville native is slowly transforming his hometown into a dining destination with the multi-award winning chef's tasting room, The Catbird Seat, and a kitschy honky-tonk on Broadway called Paradise Park. He and co-owner Benjamin Goldberg currently own five businesses with a combined revenue of $10 million.
Peisker is 27 and opened Porter Road Butcher with his business partner Chris Carter. (They are both classically trained chefs who met working in the kitchen at Capitol Grille.)
Trained at Hyde Park's Culinary Institute of America, Peisker discovered his love for butchering as a sous chef at Niche in St. Louis. Before opening Porter Road, he did a stage at Chicago's The Butcher and Larder to further his education in whole animal butchering.
Congratulations, gentlemen! Glad the national media continues to notice Nashville and its thriving culinary scene.
