Brothers Ben and Max Goldberg have recruited back to Nashville Jason Brumm, the brain behind former Gulch restaurant Radius10, to take over the kitchen at Lower Broad institution Merchants. The Goldbergs bought Merchants almost a year ago.
“I plan to not only embrace southern cooking traditions, as I always have, but also bring some of my new perspectives from other parts of the country,” said Brumm. “The mountains in the west, the Big Apple, and our nation’s capitol have all given me dishes and techniques I will incorporate into the Merchants menu. The classics never go out of style.”
