Loved chef's market!

We used Chef’s Market for our wedding dinner. Our guests absolutely loved it, and we received countless compliments on the appetizers and meal. We chose the Jack Daniels’ braised short ribs and shrimp and grits as our entrées. For the appetizers we chose hot chicken sliders, beef tenderloin crostini, bacon topped deviled eggs, crab cakes, fried green tomato with pimento cheese, and avocado tacos. Everything was fantastic!

Would Highly Recommend!

Best food I've ever had at a wedding. We had a plated dinner and had a great experience. Food was warm, service was excellent. In particular would recommend the edamame bite and deviled egg as apps, the winter pear salad, mushroom and gruyere risotto, the hot chicken in a waffle cone, and the mini cannolis (A+).

Fabulous Food and Organized Team!

The Chef’s market teams are definitely Pros! They have tons of options to customize for your event. My guests were so complimentary of all the food and they were great about various dietary needs. When we walked out of our ceremony chefs market had apps ready for my husband and i, which was so considerate. The service was incredible and planning was low stress with such a responsive and polite team of planners. I definitely would pick chefs market again for any future events!

Chef's Market did all of the food for my own wedding and was an a absolute joy to work with! I got so many compliments on how delicious everything was (especially that Smoked Gouda mac and cheese!!) and Taylor handled everything beautifully. The fact that they have a restaurant so close to Nashville is just icing on the cake!
