Tuesday, May 12, 2020, 7:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m.

Joining us for pre-conference training or arriving early? Enjoy conversation with peers and attendees over dinner at your choice of one of three highly rated local restaurants, co-owned by Food Network celebrity chef Maneet Chauhan:

  • Chauhan: Chauhan Ale & Masala House is devoted to creating a unique dining experience in Nashville, Tennessee’s bustling food scene. Executive Chef Chauhan’s Indian roots, zest for travel, and affection for Southern cuisine have beautifully collided to offer a menu featuring globally influenced Indian cuisine that highlights aspects of the culinary scene not only in Mumbai or New Delhi, but Nashville as well, perfectly combining Indian fare with traditional Southern dishes.
  • Tansuo: Meaning ‘to explore’ in Cantonese, Tansuo serves as an exploration of contemporary Chinese cuisine reminiscent of China’s night markets and traditional street fare. The menu is full of delicious dishes using humble ingredients yet presented in an extraordinary way.
  • The Mockingbird: The Mockingbird is an elevated, modern diner drawing inspiration from that of a classic diner, offering comfort foods creatively executed with a global spin. While the restaurant remains casual and relaxed, reminiscent of an American diner, the dishes are carefully crafted and artfully presented.

Transportation provided.
