Celebrity chef Kevin Gillespie, the man behind Gunshow and the newly-opened Revival restaurant in Decatur, will partner with one of the world’s largest electronic music festivals.
Gillespie will be a part of Tomorrow’s Table at this year’s TomorrowWorld festival. The festival will be held Sept. 25 through Sep. 27 in Chattahoochee Hills, Ga.
From the press release:
Tomorrow’s Table will focus on three key elements throughout the weekend:
– The music festival’s first sit-down restaurant experience, which will overlook the Main Stage and feature a new, fresh seasonal menu per day themed to one of Gillespie’s marquee restaurant concepts (traditional whole-hog barbecue Terminus City, award-winning restaurant Gunshow, and his newest Southern upscale eatery,Revival)
– A similarly-themed takeaway picnic basket service
– And an intimate, seated 10-course dinner cooked and served by Gillespie and friends on Saturday night of the festival
“Music and food together are a natural fit,” Gillespie said in the press release. “They both serve to enliven your spirit and bring people together in communion. Our team could not be more excited about being a part of such a wonderful event.”
Jamie Reilly, project director for TomorrowWorld, said the event is a chance to showcase taste experiences throughout the world.
“We pride ourselves on bringing together tastes from around the globe to the TomorrowWorld experience,” Reilly said in the press release. “Showcasing local flavor is a huge part of that, so partnering with Chef Kevin Gillespie and Red Beard Restaurants was a natural fit for expanding TomorrowWorld’s food offerings.”
