Sunda Celebrates Grand Opening in Nashville Today, April 16

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Chicago-based hospitality group Rockit Ranch Productions is excited to announce the opening of its second Sunda location today, Monday, April 16 in Nashville’s Gulch neighborhood.

“After a lifetime of culinary and culturally immersed travel throughout Southeast Asia, I’m so blessed to be working alongside such incredibly talented teammates and sharing in our love and passion for hospitality and New Asian cuisine,” said Billy Dec, owner of Sunda. “Through elevated ingredients, cooking techniques and presentation, we create tasting experiences that are completely new and exciting, while still retaining the deep-rooted spirit of the traditional dishes that have inspired us.”

A VISUAL, CULTURAL AND CULINARY TOUR THROUGH SOUTHEAST ASIA

Sunda’s food and cocktail menus showcase modern interpretations of culturally important classics from Southeast Asia and its surrounding islands by drawing inspiration from Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and more. The venue will also allow guests to participate in cultural experiences, including sake and Japanese whiskey tastings, sushi rolling classes and a monthly Kamayan Feast—a family-style meal you eat with your hands, featuring an array of traditional Filipino food spread across a table covered in banana leaves.

In addition to signature dishes from its flagship Chicago location such as Miso-Glazed Black Cod, Adobo Braised Pork Belly, Lemongrass Beef Lollipops and the popular Peared Sake cocktail, guests can also expect an assortment of sushi, sashimi and nigari, as well as an extensive list of premium Asian beers, sake, wine and seasonal craft cocktails.

By drawing inspiration from the vision of internationally-acclaimed interior designer Tony Chi for Sunda Chicago, design firm Strada, LLC has brought the spirit of Sunda to Nashville. Rockit Ranch has also partnered with Fresh Hospitality, the Nashville-based hospitality group behind Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint, Biscuit Love and a handful of other thriving concepts, to introduce Sunda to the Nashville market. 

ALL IN FOR NASHVILLE

Dec himself has not only relocated from Chicago to Nashville to become a part of the community, he’s brought with him his leadership team, including executive chef and partner Michael Morales, lead mixologist Nahm Kim, general manager Choon Lai and operations partner Brett Shane, to bring the very best of Sunda to Music City.
