Pop-Up Watch

  • Gemellis, from Lilette executive sous chef Edward Charles, pops up again at Lilette on Sunday, March 5, for a special four-course Italian, family-style, Lenten dinner. Sauteed jumbo shrimp, pasta “fazool,” cioppino, and marsala-poached pears with lenten biscotti are on the menu. Tickets are $60 and include wine pairings (but do not include tip).

Moving On

  • Beloved Willa Jean pastry chef and partner Lisa White has made a permanent move to Nashville as the executive pastry chef for John Besh’s new projects at the Thompson Nashville Hotel. Live vicariously and take a look at her new dessert menu at Marsh House. It may be worth a trip for the “bananas & rum.”
