Opened in 1910, The Hermitage Hotel has been woven into the history and memories of Nashville and her residents for over 100 years.  In keeping with a deep respect for Nashville and the state of Tennessee, The Hermitage Hotel is committed to preserving the region’s heritage by putting into practice the traditions that make hospitality synonymous with The South.  This commitment extends to protecting the state’s historic and scenic landscapes through a relationship with The Land Trust for Tennessee.  This relationship began in 2008 when a program was created in which guests may donate $2.00 for every night they stay in the hotel.   To date guests have donated over $150,000.  The relationship was furthered in 2010 when the Trust graciously allowed the Capitol Grille to create a substantial period garden using sustainable practices on the property at Glen Leven.   Glen Leven is an historic 66 acre farm located just 5 miles from The Hermitage Hotel and owned by the Land Trust for Tennessee.   The Hermitage Hotel is the only Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond hotel in Tennessee and five contiguous states.

The commitment to preservation continues in the hotel’s Capitol Grille and Oak Bar.  Relaxed, low key, and known as the place for Nashvillians “in the know”, the Capitol Grille is the best example of a regionally inspired southern steakhouse in Nashville.  Chef Tyler Brown has found the best source for heritage breed beef which now graze on the grasses at the farm at Glen Leven.  The farm at Glen Leven also provides the vegetables that are used in all seasonally planned dishes.   The adjacent Oak Bar is inviting and quickly becomes a favorite for all who visit.


Chef Brown is actively involved with Share Our Strength, an organization whose mission is to end childhood hunger by 2015, and the Chef’s Move to Schools program, an offshoot of the Let’s Move program.  Also, by supporting the Southern Foodways Alliance, the team at the Capitol Grille works to assure that the recipes and methods passed from generation to generation are not lost.  The Capitol Grille is Nashville’s only Forbes Four Star and AAA Four Diamond restaurant.
