What happens when the chefs from one of Nashville’s finest food trucks teams up with Nashville’s award winning spirits distillery? Well, I can’t say for sure, but I’m guessing it’s going to be one hell of a party!

Riffs Fine Street Food is once again hosting a pop up restaurant, and this time, I get to break the exciting news that it will be held at Corsair Distillery in Marathon Village!

Not only that, but this pop up is going to feature a jam session of sorts between BJ and Carlos of Riffs and the Corsair mixologist. That’s right. They’ve all been collaborating on a cocktail for each course. We’re talking multiple courses, each paired with a Corsair inspired cocktail. There has even been some talk of liquid nitrogen being involved.

Hello people. This is good stuff.

I had the pleasure of attending Riffs first pop up restaurant a couple of months back and the food and drink were fantastic. The dishes were creative. The location was unique.

But this concept of teaming up with Corsair? Brilliant.

You don’t want to miss this one. Trust me!
