Little Rock is losing one of its culinary icons. Chef Matt Bell is making the move to Nashville.
The chef-owner of South on Main, Bell is taking over as the executive chef for Gray & Dudley at Nashville’s 21c Museum Hotel. He reportedly is set to start in Nashville in February.
“We are thrilled to welcome Matt as the executive chef of Gray & Dudley,” Melanie Tapp, Senior Director, 21c Food and Beverage, said in a statement. “Matt’s skill and experience in the kitchen are matched by his love of community and compassion for others, which makes him a perfect addition to the 21c Nashville team. We can’t wait for locals and travelers alike to visit him at Gray & Dudley.”
Bell will be selling South on Main as part of the move.
