Vox Table has a new pastry chef: Annabelle Turner, who comes to the New American restaurant from dessert bar Nightcap. Her new position means new sweets for Vox, including ice cream sandwiches like the boozy Dreamsicle, a gluten-free and vegan coconut fudge sundae, and plated ones like the toasted sesame semifreddo.

Turner takes the place of Adam Bocce, who replaced Vox’s founding pastry chef Allison Henschel. She also previously worked for Paggi House and Perla’s.

With Turner gone from Nightcap, the Clarksville bar is looking to refocus on more savory dishes helmed by executive chef Drew Dunston. This is indicated by its new tagline: "We’ve got more than just a sweet side." A new late night menu will include burgers and steak frites. Sweet options will still be available.

Vox Table’s keeping busy by opening an unnamed modern Mexican restaurant in Lamar Union’s second building, across the way from Cantine. This was originally slated for David Garrido, before he joined Dine at the Radisson.
