Loveless Cafe Chefs Return From Prestigious New York Dinner
by Jason Lamb
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Loveless Cafe is known for its simple southern food, but some chefs from the restaurant just returned from a trip up north -- serving up a fancy dinner that chefs from across the nation view as a crowning achievement.
They got an invitation to serve dinner at the James Beard House in New York City on Valentines day.
The chefs from the Loveless served up a menu including classic fried chicken and smoked trout.
"We knew we had served something not just for the Loveless Cafe, but for Nashville, for Tennessee and the South," said senior pitmaster George Harvell. "It's like we got the opportunity to take something really special up there and share it with them."
The Loveless Cafe found out they'd been invited to the James Beard House to prepare dinner back in October, but they had to keep everything a secret until the beginning of this year.
