Nashville veteran chef Jason Matheson has decided to open his first full-service restaurant, Primrose Table, in Murfreesboro.

With the tables set for a spring 2019 opening, Matheson aims to serve fine fare at a fair price.

He said the menu will feature familiar favorites with refined flair like Korean BBQ-stuffed potato skins, cornbread panzanella salad, and a roasted chicken breast with Woodford Reserve wild mushroom sauce. Other offerings will include Wagyu burgers, shrimp and lobster rolls, fish and chips, hearty seasonal salads, grilled steaks and chicken, chargrilled lamb, pulled pork sandwiches, fresh fish and more.

Primrose Table plans to serve dinner six nights a week (closed on Sundays), offering a full bar, in addition to a ‘vibrant selection’ of wines.

Matheson has spent time in the kitchen’s of Nashville’s Watermark, Marsh House, and Cork & Cow. he started his career at 101st Airborne and New Orleans Seafood Manor.

Primrose Table will be located in the old Hasting’s building at 1650 Memorial Blvd. in the Parkside development owned by Baker Storey McDonald Properties.

Jason Matheson and his wife Nevada have also been selling flowers at craft fairs and food truck events out of the back of their classic GMC pickup but now they want to branch out with private events like baby/bridal showers, birthday parties and wedding receptions.

They will deliver your flower orders with their all original 1972 GMC pick-up truck with Primrose Flower Truck emblazoned on the side.

"We had The Very Idea put a frame and canvas canopy on the back for us to protect the flowers," Jason Matheson said.

You'll never find a mobile flower shop with more style.
