Noma Alum Moves to The Catbird Seat in Nashville

Nashville restaurant gets Noma vet for its new chef

Nashville's The Catbird Seat announced that its new executive chef would be Noma alum Trevor Moran.

In exciting news from Nashville, The Catbird Seat has hired its new executive chef, and it’s former Noma sous chef Trevor Moran.

Last month The Catbird Seat’s previous executive chef, Erik Anderson, left to move to Minneapolis. According to Strategic Hospitality, Moran plans to “slowly change the menu” at the 32-seat Catbird Seat “to simplify the cusine and incorporate his Irish upbringing and Nordic background.”

Moran had previously been working for Rene Redzepi at Noma in Copenhagen since 2009.

“We’re very excited to welcome Trevor to Nashville and see the next iteration of The Catbird Seat,” said owner Benjamin Goldberg.  “Since we opened The Catbird Seat two years ago, our vision was to be a place where young chefs can express their creativity with no culinary boundaries. Trevor is extraordinarily talented and takes a unique team approach to his cooking, so I know the creative minds collaborating in our kitchen are going to create some amazing dishes.”
