After spending about 20 years in New York City, and making a name for himself at his Brooklyn restaurants Seersucker, Nightingale 9, and Wilma Jean (among others), Arkansas native Rob Newton returned to the South and took over the kitchen at Gray & Dudley in Nashville, Tennessee. While back in town for Heritage’s annual holiday gala, Rob made time to join Andrew for lunch and an interview. They discuss modern Southern food, how it feels to return to the South after so long in New York, and talk a little about Rob’s forthcoming debut cookbook.
