Rolf and Daughters Restaurant Review

: The vacant old Werthan bag factory has become a nexus of cool for Nashville, first with lofts carved out of its cavernous space and now with this hybrid Southern American and Northern Italian restaurant. Rolf and Daughters makes a name for itself with self-styled “modern peasant food.” What does this mean? How about a raw Brussels sprout salad/slaw with the main ingredient tossed with Sardinian cheese, apples and hazelnuts, perhaps followed by shredded heirloom pork with broccoli rabe and old-world beans? They also make some mighty fine turnip greens, and if ordering those alongside a dish of farro, hen-of-the-woods mushrooms and Parmesan doesn’t throw you for a loop, then this place has got you covered. Nashville is becoming quite a cocktail town, and the bar keeps up with creations such as the “Transcend and Include,” which throws artisanal tequila and mezcal into the ring with an Italian Asti apéritif, Aperol and grapefruit bitters. The wine list is of medium length and reasonably priced, featuring many small producers. For dessert, don’t miss the bombolini, little beignets filled with vanilla cream and garnished with a chocolate dipping sauce.
