Dinner Lab is coming to Nashville!

Dinner Lab is coming to Nashville!!

I recently sat down with 2 really cool guys bringing an exciting new experience to Nashville! Dinner Lab's CEO Brian Bordainick and COO Drew Barrett, have created a unique dining experience unlike any other that you've participated in before. "Why?" you ask.........Well, the dining experience you participate in during one of Dinner Lab's events takes place in a new non-restaurant location, with a different Chef and unique menu each and every time so that no dining experience will ever be the same!

(There is a cool video below that gives a visual of how it works!!)

Created in New Orleans, Dinner Lab has grown by leaps and bounds recently. Their events are so popular that they have expanded to Austin, TX and now Nashville! They officially kick off in Nashville this week and if you want to be a part of these great events you can check out their website and become a member. To become a member, you pay one flat yearly fee that entitles you to the notification of events and gives you the ability to register for the dinners. 

There will be 2 dinners per week and they fill up fast - like FAST, because of how awesome they are! After you sign up for a dinner, you will receive instructions for attending the event. One of the cool aspects of this model is that you don't know the location of the event until 24 hours prior...How cool is that!! This is also a fabulous opportunity to sit at the table and socialize with people you've never met before (This is right up my alley!!!)


I will have more info to come over the next couple of weeks as I definitely plan to be in attendance for the first event in a couple of weeks! For now, here is an excerpt from the Dinner Lab website along with a cool video ( The video had me hooked from the beginning!!) that gives you more info:

"Dinner Lab is a membership-based social dining experiment that unites undiscovered chefs with adventurous diners who are looking for something different from the traditional restaurant experience. Whether it happens on the roof of an abandoned building, the floor of a paper mill, or inside a motorcycle dealership, we believe that good people, good food and good drink are the only elements needed for a truly memorable meal.

Our events bring together a group of interesting strangers around a common table to share cuisine crafted by up and coming chefs from all over the country. We don’t dictate what our chefs cook, but instead encourage to them to tell a story through the menu – recipes that speak to their background or heritage, ingredients they are passionate about, or completely new dishes they’ve been experimenting with on days away from the restaurant.

Because we keep our cuisine, our environment and our patrons constantly in flux, each Dinner Lab event exists for only one evening. Over the course of a year we may host up to 100 events in a single city, but no meal will ever happen in the same way, with the same food, with the same people, in the same space."
