Nashville is booming so hard, you could eat at a new restaurant every weekend and still have plenty to try. Here’s our latest list of new concepts coming soon to Music City.
The new E3 Chophouse is owned by country music superstars, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and their partner Adam LaRoche, but this is not another superstar-backed honky tonk. E3 Chophouse Nashville will be a high-end, three-story, ranch to restaurant in Hillsboro Village that will serve up high-quality, all-natural, antibiotic and hormone-free meats. E3 has one other location in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
The man behind the beloved Biscuit Love restaurants is opening a new concept, a wood-fired pizza restaurant called ‘za. This fast casual pizza place will be adjacent to the Biscuit Love location in Hillsboro Village and will serve up eight pizza options all served in to-go boxes. You can take out or hang out but the idea here is easy and delicious.
Prominent Atlanta-based chef and restauranteur, Ford Fry, is making his Nashville debut with Superica (pronounced “Super-Rica”), a new Tex-Mex hot spot opening in the Gulch in August. If you love delicious food like chicken verde enchiladas, skirt steak fajitas, al pastor tacos, and queso fundido, this will be your new jam. This restaurant will be the fourth Superica (other locations include Atlanta, Houston and Charlotte, NC) and the first of four concepts Fry’s bringing to Nashville.
It doesn’t get much more Nashville than this.. It’s chicken and, er, IN waffles. Then you choose from five homemade sauces to top off your creatively delicious dinner. Coneheads, which will be right smack in the heart of East Nashville, will have all the ice cream parlor vibes except you come here for dinner, not dessert.
We’ve been talking about this one for awhile. Fetch Park is a membership-based tricked-out dog park that’s coming to Germantown by the end of the year and we. can’t. wait. Twenty bucks a month will getcha access to a dog dream play area, a restaurant/bar, WiFi, outdoor TV’s, cooling stations, a dog bath area and “bark rangers” to keep an eye on all of the four-legged friends.
A second Pancho & Lefty’s is coming to Nashville in the former Local Taco restaurant in Sylvan Park. The original location is downtown and uber popular. They serve all the classic Mexican items we looove but they’ve also got some unique spins on dishes like hot chicken tacos. And you can never go wrong with their Big A** Nachos.
7. Ruby Sunshine – Expected Opening: Soon
The former home of Jackson’s in Hillsboro Village is finally getting a new resident.. all-day breakfast restaurant, Ruby Sunshine! This eatery will be the second location in Middle Tennessee with the first one opening in downtown Franklin in March and people have been loving it. The menu is full of New Orleans-style twists on classic brunch items. Yum.
8. Live + Breathe Wellness House – Expected Opening: Soon
Live + Breathe Wellness is all about wellness and relaxation in the heart of the Gulch, one of the hottest spots in Nashville. Here you’ll get to experience everything from massages to cryotherapy to float tanks and so much more. We’re feeling less stressed just thinking about this place.
You don’t have to travel to the other side of the world to experience amazing, authentic Asian street fare! “Hawkers” are street vendors in Asia who serve up delicious food with locally-grown ingredients and that’s basically what they’re bringing to Music City. In fact, Hawkers will be serving up the most popular street dishes as well as the owners’ family recipes handed down for generations!
Jonathan’s Grille is a household name around these parts. In fact, Jonathan’s is Nashville’s #1 Sports Bar! And for good reason. They serve up incredible food and have 55 TV’s in every location so you don’t miss a game. The newest location will be in the heart of Germantown.
Sometimes you just need some Mexican food in a hurry and Tacos With A Twist is your solution! They’re opening up a fast casual spot to get your tex-mex fill in the heart of the Melrose area. We love that you can build your own tacos at this place or indulge in one of their unique “twists” such as their Nashville Hot Tacos or their Teriyaki Chicken and Rice Tacos.
When you’re in the mood for upscale Latin fare, Babalu will be your new go-to. The owners have a mutual love for Latin food and music, even naming the restaurant after the signature song of TV character, Ricky Ricardo, from the hit show I Love Lucy. We think Babalu is a perfect fit for Nashville and we have a feeling you’re going to agree.
