Deb Paquette is well known in Nashville where she’s lived and worked for the last thirty plus years. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, she became the first woman in Tennessee to qualify as a certified executive chef. She’s been a trailblazer for chefs in the area, a mentor, and consultant to some of Nashville’s best talent. She’s won countless awards and accolades and was the chef/owner of Zola – named in Gourmet Magazine as one of the Top Sixty Restaurants in the United States – where diners flocked to her big, bold flavors for thirteen years.
In 2010, she and her husband, Ernie, closed Zola and headed for the ocean. After stops in the Turks and Caicos Islands, Cape Cod, the Bahamas, and Mexico, the two returned to Nashville. That’s when the owners of Amerigo restaurants made Deb an offer she couldn’t refuse and ETCH was born in the summer of 2012.
Etch was designed to be everything Deb has ever wanted in a restaurant, allowing her to be at her creative best. She says that being just a little bit older and wiser gives her the advantage of perspective, and having the equipment she’s always wanted gives her the opportunity to explore all the changes going on in the food industry.
In August of 2016, Deb and the owners of Amerigo & Etch opened her newest concept – etc.– in the Green Hills neighborhood. This smaller, more intimate version of Etch boasts a swanky vibe with a menu that incorporates all of Deb’s favorite spices, produce and global recipes. A succinct wine and cocktail menu includes wines from around the world, select craft beer and a handful of culinary-minded cocktails. etc. serves lunch, dinner & Sunday brunch to a heavily local crowd that has been dining at Deb’s eateries for many years.
This past October, Deb opened Jasper’s - a casual eatery + market. Named after her beloved, playful Jack Russell Terrier, Jasper’s food and atmosphere convey a similar attitude, fun and playful! Equipped with TVs, a grab & go market, shuffleboard, and a game room available for private events, this neighborhood spot is Nashville’s new go-to restaurant + bar to gather, play, eat, and drink.
