Erik Anderson at Grand Cafe


After staging at the prestigious Noma restaurant in Copenhagen, Anderson relocated to Nashville to co-helm the kitchen at The Catbird Seat. At The Catbird Seat–now considered one of Nashville’s most groundbreaking restaurants–he delivered an ever changing, ten-course tasting menu in an interactive format. In 2012, Anderson was named one of Food & Wine’s “Best New Chefs.” The following year, the magazine bestowed him with the additional honor of being named “Best New Chef All Star,” where a talent from each class of the past 25 years was highlighted. The Catbird Seat also received accolades including Bon Appétit’s “Best New Restaurants in America” and one of GQ magazine's “Top Ten Best New Restaurants in America.” Anderson has also appeared on Bizarre Food with Andrew Zimmern, the PBS Series The Mind of a Chef, and Vice’s Munchies.
