Capitol Grille at The Hermitage Hotel is easily one of Nashville’s best restaurants. Chef Tyler Brown has helmed the kitchen there for more than 10 years, taking a storied but traditional program and transforming it into a model for hotel dining. His plates draw from a four-acre vegetable garden he and his staff farm through the Land Trust for Tennessee, and last fall, Brown and The Hermitage launched 65-acre Double H Farms, raising red poll cattle for the restaurant and area chefs. For lunch, that beef might be served as meatloaf on a blue plate special, and in the evening, Brown might cook it sous vide with turnips, apples, and truffles as accoutrement. Rising Star Pastry Chef Kayla Swartout upgrades Southern desserts without losing sight of their origins. Her coconut cake is simply the best possible (and most beautifully plated) version you can imagine.
