Jordan Greene, a Greeneville native with nearly 20 years of culinary experience, has been named the new executive chef at Brumley’s Restaurant. Greene will unveil a new dinner menu at the restaurant today from 5-9 p.m.
“The menu pays homage to East Tennessee and our Appalachian roots,” Greene said. “We live in an amazing area for fresh produce and one rich with history. I will showcase dishes that tell the stories of our region and feature some of the food my parents and grandparents cooked. I plan to elevate those dishes with a modern take on classic, Southern cuisine.”
Greene said he believes food should conjure up fond memories from childhood, special moments and family gatherings. “Food should be welcoming and nostalgic,” he said. “You should take a bite and have it take you back to your mom’s or grandma’s kitchen. I know that anytime I smell bacon it reminds me of eating at grandma’s house before church as a child. There’s no easier way to bring a smile than through good food.”
Reservations are highly recommended.
