new nashville restaurant 2017There are a massive number of new eateries coming to Nashville this year, and I’ve got the scoop and details on a few that are sure to be big hits!

Hopsmith Tavern in Midtown

Construction on Hopsmith Tavern has just begun construction, according to Eater Nashville! The interior appears to have a number of themed bars, with motifs including a car road trip, pop culture and a man cave of sorts. The exterior features two outdoor patios on the first and second floor down the left side of the building. Hopsmith Tavern has its origins in Chicago, and will be a multi-level bar and restaurant.

Attaboy in East Nashville

‘Attaboy’ is the name of a famed New York cocktail bar with no menu, and an East Nashville location. Tucked behind the East Nashville main street, it’s only distinguishable by signage on the side (which features a funky a chicken on a motorcycle) and is treated in the same way as the New York venue: you knock on the door, a server answers and asks how many, and you indicate whether you want the narrow galley open-seating or whether or not you want a private booth.

Taquiera Del Sol on Charlotte

Mexican fast-casual restaurant Taquiera Del Sol is a huge favorite with Nashville locals who love cheap eats, and is one of their many locations in town! This one will be next to the Charlotte location of M.L. Rose burgers & beer. If you’ve been a victim of the lines at their 12 South location (which have been as common a sight as the lines at Pancake Pantry in Hillsboro Village) make certain not to miss this location, which opened earlier in July!

Oak Steakhouse in Downtown

The Nashville outpost of Charleston-based Oak Steakhouse is now open next to the Westin Hotel. Located at 801 Clark Place, the 7,000-square-foot restaurant and bar is a looker, offering soaring ceilings, walls of windows and a somewhat subtle tree motif. Oak Steakhouse has gone to extraordinary lengths to source most of their products from local vendors, including Noble Creek Farms, Porter Road Butcher, Bells Bend Farms, Bobby John Henry’s Bakery, Carolina Heritage Farm, Carter Creek Greens Farm, Green Door Gourmet, Williams Honey, and a dozen other local greats.
