Alas, the time has come to say goodbye to July. But, before we do, we can’t help but indulge ourselves with the dessert of the month one last time. And take full advantage of all the summer sample sales. And maybe even do a good deed or two. Heck, if August turns out to be anything like this past
It’s been over a month since any of our friends from Nashville paid us a visit and, quite frankly, we’re suffering from withdrawal.
Thankfully, Chef Andrew Little from Josephine on 12th, Nashville’s hottest new restaurant, is coming up to give us our fix.
Since he opened earlier this year – the great citizens of Nashville have been clamoring for a seat at the table! So it’s no surprise, it’s right at the top of Eater Nashville’s Heat Map!
You’re not going to want to miss out on your last chance of the summer for some guest chef grub — and this is some good grub!
We’re always on the look-out for chefs who do things just a little differently — unexpected food combinations, unique flavor profiles, ever-changing themed dinners set in a nondescript location.
Sounds a lot like a little culinary salon in Nolita. But, alas, we’re talking about Chef Evan Hennessey.
We hate to brag…really we do…but we’re going to do it…just this once.
He’s worked with some of the best chefs in the country - Charlie Palmer, Grant Achatz, Thomas Keller, and Andrew Carmellini!!!
So it’s no surprise he was a 2014 JBF semi-finalist, a Star Chef’s Rising Star, and his restaurant Stages at One Washington was named the #1 Hottest Restaurant by New Hampshire Magazine.
Don’t miss your chance to experience his perfect balance of classic and modern technique to prepare dishes highlighting New Hampshire’s locally farmed and foraged food.
Some call his style progressive New England cuisine. We call it one of the best meals you’ll eat this year!
Last week we invited a mess of Southern chefs — both visiting from the South and transplanted in New York City — to stop by the Food Republic test kitchen and talk about the state of Southern food in
It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Memorial Day and today we’re planning for July! Since we run a limited schedule in August, we wanted to make sure you got your fill of fun with the CITY GRIT dinners we’ve got planned for the rest of the summer!
We’ve got everyone’s favorite dinner, Southern Comfort, featuring some new dishes we’ve been working on with the bounty of produce hitting the market.
Corn, Tomatoes, Strawberries, Oh my!
AND we’ve got a Low Country Shrimp Supper on the books. Imagine a Low Country Boil like you’ve never seen book-ended with some of our favorite shrimp snacks! We can hardly wait!
Finally we’ve made some room for Southern Small Plates- a dinner featuring…you guessed it…a CITY GRIT twist on traditional tapas!
Meet Sarah Simmons, the chef and founder of City Grit, a New York “culinary salon.” After being named America’s Home Cook Superstar by Food & Wine magazine in 2010, Sarah made the transition to…
You know what we’re obsessed with? Our baller chef friends who are stepping out of the high-end kitchens they’ve been in for years to venture out and open up their first joint, which also just happens to be the first of a kind in their city — ballers.
Like our pal Liza Shaw formerly of A16 (we dream about those duck meatballs!!), who was craving the Italian subs us East Coasters take for granted—boom she opened Merigan Sub Shop.
And our buddy, Mike Gulotta, who left the helm at John Besh’s August Restaurant to open up a Pho spot in New Orleans.
The newest baller on the block is Scott Crawford, who just left his post running both the kitchen and the bar of The Umstead Hotel & Spa, in order to open up a bodega.
Yes, you heard us right, a BODEGA!
But this ain’t your corner store. It’s every food lovers fantasy market. We’re talkin’ farm fresh produce stand meets whole animal butcher shop meets sustainable seafood and prepared foods that makes Dean and Deluca looks like…well the bodega that’s your corner store!
Now that you have showered your mom with love, affection and gifts, it’s time to think about dad. This guy probably won’t ask for anything, or expect anything, but he’s pretty important and deserves a little love—at least some delicious snacks!
Our CITY GRIT Father’s Day Gourmet Gift Basket - exclusively sold online at Williams-Sonoma - is pretty much the ultimate gift for your food-loving father with

Our friends from D’Artagnan’s are hosting a Duckathlon starring some of our favorite local chefs like Anita Lo, Harold Moore, Brad Farmerie, Saul Bolton, and Damon Wise.
Join our pals who are teaming up with local farmers for an afternoon of food-focused, interactive challenges, tons of tastings, and three of our favorite things – beer, wine, & whiskey! Proceeds go to Food Love by Action Against Hunger – one of our favorite charities! Hope to see y’all there!
We wait all year for the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party to enjoy plate after plate of pulled pork, ribs, Jim N Nick’s Hot links, Pappy on the porch at EMP, and most of all hanging with our chef besties all weekend!
Speaking of besties, since we opened we’ve been trying to get two of our favorite pitmasters - Chefs Justin and Jonathan Fox of Fox Brothers Bar-B-Que - to bring their signature barbecue to CITY GRIT.
And after begging and pleading, they said YES!
We don’t typically do this but we peeked at the menu and [SPOILER ALERT!] we’re sharing the wealth… Benton’s Bacon and Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs, their infamous Frito Pie and our favorite - Beef Short Ribs - all made the cut!
Don’t worry veg-heads! It’s not just going to be a pile of meat! They’re planning on serving some market driven sides, but who really cares when there’s Frito Pie!!
Fresh off the heels of an adventure exploring her Brazilian heritage and diving deeper into the cuisine of South American, NEXT BIG THING Chef Shanna Pacifico is back in town and getting ready a new restaurant.
What new restaurant? Well, we don’t know ourselves. She’s not spilling any details on her first solo spot until next week when she’s comes to the CITY GRIT kitchen to cook us a market driven menu inspired by the flavors of Brazil.
Finally! That warm, bright yellow thing in the sky is back! You know that thing… the sun. We’d almost forgotten what it looked like!
Along with the sunshine, comes an abundance of produce (so long root vegetables!). So we’re making the most of May with new dishes celebrating the new season starting this week with Spring Fling!
We have such a great guest chef line up that could only squeeze in two more CITY GRIT dinners at the very end of the month, so we brought back two fan favorites – Southern Comfort and Southern Shabbat!
Oy vey, we’re SO excited we’re starting to schvitz.
And since there isn’t a Sunday Supper this month, don’t be surprised if one or two of the dishes for Birds & Bubbles shows up at one of these dinners!
