Since it opened two years ago, Catbird Seat has been a major force in transforming the Nashville dining scene—from a town of meat-and-threes to a city where atelier dining can thrive and push culinary boundaries on a national level. Its original chef duo has now departed, with Josh Habiger manning the kitchen at nearby Pinewood Social and Erik Anderson moving on to open his own project. No doubt incoming chef, Noma-alum Trevor Moran, will keep up the ground-breaking work, accessible to diners 32 seats at a time. And the team will keep in tact the intimate mingling of chef and somm and diner. The cook who toiled over your dish will deliver it to your table, explain it in detail, and rush back behind the line to prepare your next course. Sommelier Adam Binder is also a mixing genius, atomizing an aperitif-wine with Scotch and making his own cordials. Binder rounds out any experience at Catbird Seat, an experience that is sure to evolve in the coming months.
