Flyte World Dining is on the edge of the Gulch, just a block or so away from Third Man Records. Housed in an open warehouse, its raw interior (concrete floors, exposed duct work, etc.) is juxtaposed by large-scale art, bright orange walls, and the intimate glow of candlelight. After working for Sean Brock in Charleston, South Carolina, Rising Star Chef Matt Lackey moved back home to Nashville, took on the sous chef role at Flyte, and was quickly thrust into the role of executive chef—and for good reason. Lackey’s food speaks of now, and the deep devotion he has to the land and farmers who supply his pantry. Lackey devotes much of his time to sourcing and growing product (he helps run a family farm outside town), and when it’s time to cook, he cleverly works to lightly manipulate that product—showing deference for the effort it took to grow or raise.
