The Catbird Seat/Facebook

The Catbird Seat is one of Nashville’s most highly lauded restaurant experiences: diners sit at a U-shaped bar and watch chef Ryan Poli and his team turn out their meal, serving bites and chatting about ingredients during service.

So for the real Catbird Seat experience, you’ll have to spend the time and money to travel all the way to Tennessee.

Or you can just pop over to Vetri’s private dining room on May 8th.
