DRUSIE & DARR

The flagship of Chef Jean-Georges’ culinary program, our signature restaurant Drusie & Darr welcomes guests with refined seasonal cuisine and impeccable ambiance. The restaurant is named after real life sister and brother Drusie and Darr Hall, the children of the hotel’s former general manager, Dick Hall. During the 1950’s and ‘60’s, Drusie and Darr lived and grew up in the manager’s sixth floor apartment, making The Hotel Hermitage their personal playground. Their wondrous spirits and marvelous, storybook-like adventures won the hearts of staff and guests alike. Today, the exquisitely designed restaurant and bar serve as a backdrop for Jean-Georges’ world-renowned epicurean adventures. The Drusie & Darr menu showcases the abundance of Tennessee’s regional produce while also featuring Jean-Georges’ signature plant-based offerings and oven-fired pizzas.

The Pink Hermit

Tucked into a charming corner of the hotel, The Pink Hermit is a casually elegant all-day café under the direction of Chef Jean-Georges. The light-filled space with both indoor and outdoor seating will evolve throughout the day, serving as a coffee bar with an array of pastries in morning, shifting to casual take-away fare mid-day before serving as a destination wine bar in the evenings, with special vintages and light bites.

In-Room Dining

With our warm and welcoming collection of accommodations, you may never want to step foot out your door! At The Hermitage Hotel, we invite you to settle in and enjoy a world-class meal without leaving your room or suite. Available from dawn to dusk to dawn again, savor Chef Jean-Georges’ celebrated cuisine from Drusie & Darr in comfort and style, whether it’s breakfast in bed or a relaxed supper in your sitting area.
