Sitting in Forbes' Catbird Seat

Forbes magazine has named Nashvillian Max Goldberg (pictured) — he of Catbird Seat, Paradise Park and Patterson House fame with brother Benjamin — to its 30 Under 30 list for the Food and Wine category.

In addition, the list includes James Peisker, co-founder of Porter Road Butcher in East Nashville, which opened its doors about a year ago.

The Nashville native is slowly transforming his hometown into a dining destination with the multi-award winning chef's tasting room, The Catbird Seat, and a kitschy honky-tonk on Broadway called Paradise Park. He and co-owner Benjamin Goldberg currently own five businesses with a combined revenue of $10 million.

Trained at Hyde Park's Culinary Institute of America, Peisker discovered his love for butchering as a sous chef at Niche in St. Louis. Before opening Porter Road, he did a stage at Chicago's The Butcher and Larder to further his education in whole animal butchering.
