Nashville restaurant that threw out Kermit Lynch?

SteveTimko May 2, 2010 11:34 AM

Wine importer Kermit Lynch was interviewed recently by Gary Vaynerchuk. He said he got thrown out of a Nashville restaurant recently after he complained the food had too much salt. He didn't give the name, but described it as a high end restaurant. I'm curious if anyone knows of the restaurant.

    A lot of people complain that City House has a very strong hand with salt...I haven't encountered it with anything I've had there.

      Thanks. I checked reviews on another Web site that I guess we're not supposed to mention on Chowhound and a common complaint there about City House is that they over salt the food.

        I don't think they are talking about city house for these reasons. I have dined at City House many times and not found there food to be oversalted. Remember this is an Italian Restaurant so the Italian cheese can be pretty salty on their own. The 2nd reason is he said in his interview that it was a pretty fancy place, City House is many things but fancy it isn't. My guess is it was either Capital Grill, Watermark or Miro District.

          Sorry to disappoint you but it was in fact City House.

        Still, City House doesn't strike me as the kind of place that would THROW SOMEONE OUT for compaining about the salt...

          I agree with Jamie Carroll -- I can't imagine Tandy or anyone there throwing someone out. And I have dined there several times and tried many menu items and not once have we thought anything was too salty. In fact it's one of our favorites.

            Kermit Lynch has a reputation for being pretty crusty.
