Last week Team Food Republic visited one of our favorite cities, Nashville, to help celebrate the launch of Skyline — a print publication we produced in partnership with Crescent Communities. The event was held at Peter Nappi, a luxury leather studio housed in the former Neuhoff Meat Packing plant in the city’s vibrant Germantown neighborhood. Members of the city’s food, art, fashion and music communities were on hand to sip cocktails mixed with Nelson's Green Brier Distillery Belle Meade bourbon, and fine craft beers poured by Hops & Crafts. Nashville chef Sarah Gavigan, no stranger to Food Republic, served bowls o’ noodles and Japanese meatballs from her East Nashville restaurant Otaku South. Here are some photos from the party.
