THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Andrew Chadwick's at Rutledge Hill Restaurant Review: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED All the cooking is done by induction at this upscale downtown spot, because the historic house the restaurant is in wasn't amenable to gas lines. But while the food is strictly modern, the look is classic: 14-foot ceilings, stained glass, travertine tile floors, fire places galore. The menu and wine list stress chef Andrew Chadwick’s West Coast background (he is a veteran of several Caribbean and California resort kitchens); savory sorbets and other such novelties are mainstays. Highlights among the entrées are a wild sturgeon accented with celeriac and a sauce of smoked tomatoes, as well as sous-vide lamb, served over Israeli couscous after a seared finish on the grill. Desserts like a cheese plate or apple tart are generally good but lack the bold composition of the starters and mains. Local ingredients and a backyard organic garden keep the kitchen in line with many others shadowing the Slow Food movement in Music City.
