Ramen lovers in Nashville can now order “Southern comfort ramen” with the launch of NASHi Noodles, a new virtual restaurant operating out of the kitchen of Deacon’s New South. Developed by Deacon’s Executive Chef Chris Calder, NASHi Noodles offers a pared down menu that pays homage to traditional Japanese fare with a distinctly Southern twist.
“We felt there was an underserved market in Nashville for high-quality ramen available through the convenience of take-out or delivery,” said Calder. “We were able to create a unique ramen offering complete with the Southern flavors that fans of Deacon’s expect.”
Calder, who was recognized as one of Nashville’s top three chefs in Nashville Scene’s 2020 Best of Nashville Awards, oversaw the creation of the menu which features ramen bowls with a choice of Nashville Hot Chicken, Smoked Pork Shank or Short Rib with house-made broth and a variety of customizable add-ons. Hand-made gyoza (Japanese) dumplings and beverages including house-made Hot Green Tea and Iced Green Tea with Mint are also available.
NASHi Noodles opened on Wednesday, March 3, and is only available for pick-up at Deacon’s New South or through delivery (DoorDash and UberEats). NASHi Noodles items are not available on the Deacon’s New South.

This is the second virtual kitchen opened in the past two weeks by A. Marshall Hospitality. The hospitality company also recently launched Burger Dandy, a classic burger, fries and shakes concept, out of its Americana Taphouse restaurant in Franklin. A third virtual concept is under development at Scout’s Pub in Franklin.
“COVID-19 created a revolution in the restaurant industry with increased demand for the comfort, convenience and safety of pick-up or delivery options,” said Andy Marshall, CEO of A. Marshall Hospitality. “We don’t see this going away even when things get back to normal as consumers have grown accustomed to this type of service. We are fortunate to have talented folks like Chris who can create new concepts like NASHi Noodles that provide great new options for consumers while also allowing us to maximize our existing facilities and staff.”
