about DAVID

Trust Fall is excited to introduce our next chef and Maryville native, David Rule. Chef Rule found his passion for hospitality early on, working in a small family-owned restaurant at the age of 15, and the restaurant scene quickly made a tremendous impact on his future. With over 18 years of experience in the hospitality industry, David has honed his skills alongside some of the top hospitality leaders in region, including stints with Aubrey’s Restaurant Group, Dancing Bear, Lodge, and Blackberry Farm. Through these experiences, David has developed a unique style that is as calm, confident, and relaxed as his demeanor.

As Chef and Proprietor of The Walnut Kitchen in Maryville, David’s vision is ingrained in the level of hospitality and cuisine that is provided. Most recently, David is currently working on an elegant new concept to be located in the historic General Building at the corner of Church and Market in Downtown Knoxville.

Ticketing info will be released soon, so be on the lookout.

The secret location of this dinner will be disclosed to guests on the day of the event. Part of the Trust Fall experience is placing your trust in the featured chef, so no special dietary requests or preferences may be made (no refunds are offered), as we let the chefs drive this train.
