The Chef and I is a locally owned, award-winning restaurant, catering, and teambuilding company with locations in Nashville, TN and Orlando, FL. Husband and wife duo Chris and Erica Rains have been creating culinary experiences locally for 15 years. The teambuilding division is fast becoming a major draw to local and national clients sending employees and vacation groups to Nashville for food and fun! Cooking and competing is a great alternative for group activities for locals and visitors! Live music brunches and chefs' tastings at the various show kitchens are part of the unique dining one can experience once inside this unique spot. The company recently grew by relocating to a bigger space in midtown and doubling their staff. As a Nashville native, Erica Rains is proud to be located in a neighborhood that truly embodies the spirit and history of Nashville.
