A vintage masonry commercial building located one block south of Broadway has changed ownership hands for $3.56 million, according to Davidson County property records.
Located at 120 Third Ave. S., the building (seen in below image courtesy of Google Maps) is home to events space aVenue and restaurant/bar Past Perfect, both of which are expected to remain as tenants, according to The Tennessean.
The buyer is a group of investors who created Third Ave South 120/122 LLC for the transaction.
The hot chicken purveyors at Hattie B's are preparing to take over the space at 5209 Charlotte Pike from Nuvo Burrito owners Sean Perry and Tom Justice. It will be the concept's second spot. Perry and Justice, meanwhile, also will close the doors to their original spot in East Nashville later this month so that they can focus more on SoBro. Dana Kopp Franklin has the details here.
There is a reason that Etch is packed at 8:30 on Monday nights.
Officials with the SoBro-based restaurant and bar announced today their culinary creation has been selected Nashville’s No. 1 restaurant in Zagat’s America’s Top Restaurants 2014.
Etch captured a near-perfect rating (food: 28, décor: 27, service: 27), according to a release.
Zagat describes the Etch menu as an “array of flavor, texture and olfactory experiences” that are “worth savoring.” The review notes prices “reasonable for the quality” and mentions a helpful staff and entertaining atmosphere with a view of the open kitchen.
A list of “20 Top-Rated Restaurants Across America” was also compiled and ranks Etch favorably with perennial favorites like Le Bernardin in New York City and Joël Robuchon in Las Vegas.
In addition, and earlier this year, Zagat named Nashville one of its “7 Up-and-Coming Food Cities Around the U.S.,” noting “incredible creative talents, accessibility to locally-made products, and an exciting energy surrounding the city.”
Etch is led by partners Doug Hogrefe, Deb Paquette (who serves as chef) and Paul Schramkowski. The restaurant opened in August 2012 in the Encore condominium building.
More than 224,000 diners in 36 major markets voted in Zagat’s annual survey, ranking their picks of the best food, décor and service among 1,478 restaurants.
Cranes are being erected at construction sites within two of the city’s most prominent mixed-use districts, signaling major on-site work is ready for the pair of projects.
The Texas investment group that this summer signed a letter of intent to buy the plum United Methodist Publishing House site across from the Music City Center has let that agreement expire. A Terra Verde Group official tells Getahn Ward the project would have to deal with interest-rate risk that was too high.
Approximately two months after beginning operations, Tennessee Brew Works signed its 25th restaurant customer today.
The SoBro-based craft brewing company expects to have 30 restaurant/bar clients by week’s end, according to Christian Spears, Tennessee Brew Works co-owner with Garr Schwartz. In addition, Spears said the fledgling company, which is self-distributing at this point, is looking to eventually distribute its beer to restaurants and bars located outside Davidson County.
“By law, we can distribute only in Davidson County unless we hire a wholesale distributor,” he said. “We’re having conversations with distributors that could allow us to distribute in other counties. We want to self-distribute as long as we can physically handle it.”
Spears said it is “difficult to say” when Tennessee Brew Works beer will be found in at least 50 area bars and restaurants.
“We’re certainly pleased by the support of the bars and restaurants and by the community,” he said.
Tennessee Brew Works, the taproom for which opened last Thursday, offers five beers. The company will add a sixth this month.
The soon-to-be completed Hyatt Place Nashville located in SoBro will open Nov. 12, according to the building's developers.
The hotel, which fronts Third Avenue South and is located next to the Encore condominium tower, is owned by affiliates of Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc., and White Lodging and is the first new select service construction venture for Host.
Ground broke on the 255-room hotel in July 2012.
