New Restaurant in Nashville: The Redheaded Stranger
by:  Chris Chamberlain

Redheaded Stranger

Chef Bryan Lee Weaver has earned legions of fans for his work at Butcher & Bee, a Mediterranean-inspired eatery in East Nashville. However, the chef has a secret passion for the cuisine of the American Southwest, born from years working in kitchens in Colorado and California. In particular, Weaver is a big fan of a proper breakfast taco, and he has designed his next restaurant and bar project around that humble Southwestern classic dish as well as some fine smoked beef brisket and a green chile cheeseburger.

Named Red Headed Stranger after one of his musical heroes, Willie Nelson, Weaver is proud to have been granted permission to use the name by Willie’s granddaughter Raelyn Nelson. She also promised to be a regular customer at the Meridian St. restaurant when it opens early in the spring of 2019.
