Drusie & Darr
Under the direction of internationally celebrated chef and restaurateur Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Drusie & Darr is The Hermitage Hotel’s premier restaurant and bar. The restaurant is named after brother and sister Drusie and Darr Hall, the children of the hotel’s former General Manager, Dick Hall. With a childhood seemingly plucked from a storybook, the duo lived, played and grew up in the hotel during the 1950s and ‘60s.

Drusie & Darr matches a convivial atmosphere with contemporary design. Award-winning interior designer Thomas Juul-Hansen, the mastermind behind the interiors of all Jean-Georges’ restaurants, created a glamorous space, introducing modern touches while honoring the hotel’s iconic architectural details. Dramatic lighting and bespoke furnishings introduce warmth and ambiance into the space, making the restaurant a destination unto itself.

Showcasing the abundance of Tennessee’s regional produce, some of which is sourced from The Hermitage Hotel’s Garden at Glen Leven, the menu is inspired by the seasons and Tennessee’s culinary heritage. From cocktails and a sophisticated evening out, to a glass of wine and pizza from the wood-fired oven, or a relaxed family dinner, guests are sure to enjoy their dining experience at Drusie & Darr.

The Pink Hermit
For Pastries, Light Bites and Pre-Theater Champagne, Think Pink. The Pink Hermit is a chic café and take-away conceived by Jean-Georges and The Hermitage Hotel team and designed by Juul-Hansen. Its name is derived from the word “hermitage,” meaning a “secluded retreat.” This intimate space, clad in pale pink and gray marble, welcomes guests with cozy seating, both indoors and outdoors. The café’s concept will evolve throughout the day – from a coffee bar serving delectable pastries in the morning, to a casual take-away for lunch, and later, a wine bar serving small bites, Champagne and craft cocktails in the evening, perfect for pre- and post-theater gatherings.

Suffrage High Tea
Every Thursday through Saturday, guests can experience the Suffrage High Tea series. Inspired by the history of the Woman's Suffrage Moment at the Hermitage Hotel, guests can enjoy tea, scones, and sandwiches while learning about the events that occured at the hotel leading up to the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

The Hermitage Heirloom Garden
The Hermitage Hotel maintains a commitment to serving fresh and local ingredients. Through a partnership with the Land Trust for Tennessee that began in 2008, the hotel has been able to participate in the conservation of over 85,000 acres of land. The hotel runs a heirloom garden on the Land Trust’s historic Glen Leven estate – a location they helped restore. Today, the heirloom garden produces crops for the hotel’s seasonal menu offerings.
