E3, Nashville Electric Transportation Team to Create an ‘Organic’ Music City Sweetheart Evening
If you’re looking for ideas on how to create the ultimate Valentine’s evening for the special person in your life, here’s a recommendation that will ensure everyone remembers this evening for years to come.
For many Middle Tennesseans, the emphasis on healthy lifestyle choices extends to both the food we consume and our transportation. That’s precisely the driving force for the owners of Nashville Electric Transportation (NET), a Tesla-only private car service, and E3 Chophouse, a ranch-to-restaurant steakhouse that’s taking Nashville by storm. Arriving at your destination in style is step one. Singer-songwriter Will Hoge and partner Bryan Johnson, formed NET three years ago to provide residents and visitors in and to the Nashville area a luxurious and environmentally clean transportation alternative. “We sat around thinking about how we could positively impact the ever-growing transportation needs of our community,” Hoge told Brentwood Lifestyle. “After exhausting every reason why we shouldn’t start the business, we were left with more reasons why we should, and that’s how we began.”
NET currently maintains an inventory of three Model S Tesla’s, along with one incredible Model X Crossover featured here. Once the Falcon Wing doors fly open, passengers will experience a multitude of high-tech
options situated inside a luxury cabin with clean lines designed to make the driving – or in this case – the riding experience, unforgettable. You can’t miss the 17-inch touchscreen infotainment system sitting mid-dash that gives the driver and passengers details ranging from street maps to nearby music venues, to multiple comfort options. “What separates us from other transportation alternatives is the car itself,” said Hoge when
describing his Tesla fleet. “Add our top-level service, and you’ll experience a luxury ride few providers can offer.” Rides can be booked through the Net Booking app, available in your app store.
The trip is only the beginning of a spectacular evening. Nashville’s E3 Chophouse is owned by the family of former Major League Baseball slugger Adam LaRoche, along with country music sensations Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan. After discussing the concept over meals in the company’s Steamboat Springs, CO restaurant, the trio joined forces to bring the concept to Music City’s Hillsboro Village in late 2019.
So far, the reception from area food enthusiasts has been incredible. Steve Perdue, E3 general manager, has a long history of working in upscale dining and hospitality establishments in Nashville, with this his most exciting project to date. “Everything is unique about E3 Chophouse,” Perdue said while giving us a guided tour of the restaurant. “From the moment our guests enter the first-floor reception area, they’ll sense the difference. They can enjoy a cocktail at our bar downstairs or venture to the third story that showcases a larger bar and outdoor seating area that captures the energy and momentum of Hillsboro Village.”
Weather permitting, the restaurant’s garage-style doors and windows on each level can be raised, further expanding the dynamic atmosphere Nashville showcases year around. Over 40 wines are available by the glass, and the restaurant also features a wine room with over 200 bottles.
Clean lines and mushroom wood accents showcase E3’s Western heritage. And the atmosphere is only a precursor to the perfect meal. E3 Chophouse has an extensive dinner menu highlighted by their devotion to all-natural, hand- cut beef raised on certified ranches where no antibiotics, steroids, or other hormones are ever used. A variety of starters, classic accompaniments, and desserts will add the finishing touches
to this special occasion. “From the service to our unparalleled mesquite wood cooking process, E3’s goal is to stand apart,” explained Perdue. “Executive Chef Eric Zizka, along with Private Events Director Jennifer McDonnell and Beverage Curator Brooke Sutter, will ensure your expectations are exceeded, whether it’s Valentine’s Day or a business dinner. Every day is special here.” Plus, diners will be glad to know that 10 percent of all net proceeds are directed to the E3 Foundation, which supports the needs of combat veterans and the fight to end human trafficking.
