If you’ve been reading Bites for any length of time, you are no doubt familiar with the concept of the pop-up restaurant. In other cities, pop-up restaurants are a bit of an underground movement. Here in Nashville, they tend to be run by chefs (or otherwise fantastic cooks) who are just looking to stretch their creative legs a bit — stepping out of their home kitchen, their food truck or from behind the pastry counter to serve in well-established restaurants or at the Nashville Farmers Market.

One of the newer pop-ups is Sycamore Nashville. At the helm is chef Tony Galzin, currently master of desserts at Flyte World Dining and Wine, and his wife, Caroline Galzin, a veteran of restaurant management currently at Café Fundamental. With Sycamore, the Galzins are working toward opening their own restaurant while building strong ties with the community. Two big parts of that include working with local farmers (and brewers/distillers) to source ingredients, and with Hands On Nashville’s Urban Farm. Proceeds from the first Sycamore pop-up dinner and now the upcoming second pop-up dinner go to the Urban Farm project (which focuses on helping kids learn more about, and gain access to, healthy food).

The next Sycamore dinner will be Jan. 27 at Flyte. (It had been scheduled at Café Fundamental, but it has been moved to accommodate more people.) Tickets are $70 per person for the four-course meal and include cocktail pairings prepared by PourTaste. Check out Sycamore’s blog for the menu (as well as photos of the main course, ahem).
