Music City Food + Wine Festival brings the unexpected

Nashville itself and Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill inspired Waxman to open the restaurant Adele’s here earlier this summer. And he’s not the only renowned chef planting roots in Nashville.
“Top Chef” contestant Dale Levitski is executive chef at Sinema, which opened in June. “Chopped” judge Maneet Chauhan is expected to open Chauhan Ale & Masala House this fall. “Top Chef” contestant Richard Blais also is opening FLIP Burger this fall, and James Beard Award winner Donald Link is bringing Cochon Butcher next year.
