The Chef’s Table

esmeralda-inn-restaurantThe Chef’s Table allows guests to become fully immersed in our Restaurant at The Esmeralda Inn. The Table is located in a private dining room in the kitchen that allows guests to view the chef as he prepares their selected meal for the evening dining experience. Our amazing chef is not only a talented culinarian, but also a fun showman as he creates your meal before you at your private table.

Come early for this coursed meal to give yourself plenty of time to enjoy each dish. Every menu is carefully curated by talented Chef John Venuto to match your exact tastes and preferences. Be sure to amp up the experience by including wine pairings.

The Esmeralda Inn hosted the inaugural group to The Chef’s Table with guests that included restaurateurs and CEOS from Red Robin, McCallister’s, and Red Lobster. Former Rutherford County citizen and owner of two restaurants called City Range, Edna Morris was also in attendance. This first trial was the perfect opportunity to perfect our Table dining experience and to ensure that our guests will receive the very best!

The Chefs Table experience is available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 5:00pm by reservation only and can accommodate up to six guests. The Table’s menu features up to an 8-course meal with wine pairings for your private party. Pricing is $95/person, with a $500 food and beverage minimum.
