Pat Martin of Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint—celebrated pitmaster, restaurateur, and author—and chef Vivek Surti—founder and owner of acclaimed dinner party-style restaurant Tailor—have teamed up for a collaborative dinner that combines true Southern hospitality with a range of beguiling flavors that represent Nashville's iconic and growing culinary scene.

Martin and Surti are frontmen in the Music City’s hospitality industry, leaving indelible marks on the city’s foodscape during the early 2010s culinary boom and leading the food community as it continues to expand and evolve. Martin is one of few pitmasters still carrying the torch of West Tennessee–style whole-hog barbecue and is a dedicated independent restaurateur with a growing footprint across the Southeast, including award-winning Southern comfort food destinations Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint, Hugh Baby’s BBQ & Burger Shop, and SweetMilk.

A James Beard Award semifinalist for Best Chef: Southeast, chef Surti is a pioneer in the first-generation American food movement at his South Asian American restaurant, which honors Surti’s heritage as the son of Indian immigrants. Join these two chefs as they team up for the first time for a memorable, one-night-only collaboration combining flavors that celebrate the diversity of Nashville’s culinary offerings.
