Maneet Chauhan — the New York- and Nashville-based chef whose Chauhan Ale and Masala House in the North Gulch has captured attention, in part, for its Indian-spiced beer — will team with Derrick Morse of Cool Springs Brewery to operate a microbrewery in the Franklin space Turtle Anarchy will soon vacate. The facility will brew, among others, some Indian cuisine-influenced beers.
Chris Chamberlain, who knows his craft ales and lagers, has the details here at Post sister pub Nashville Scene.
The team behind Alabama-based Moe's Original Bar B Que has begun working on its second Middle Tennessee location, the downtown Franklin site formerly home to both a Copper Kettle outpost and Uncle Bud's Catfish Shack. The restaurant is expected to open its doors around Labor Day and be able to house 85 people inside and another 50 on a patio. Check out more info here.
Bound'ry — which opened in 1995 and garnered immediate acceptance as one of Nashville's best restaurants at the time — has closed.
Dana Kopp Franklin, our colleague at Post sister publication Nashville Scene, reports that employees were reportedly told Monday that the restaurant, currently closed this week in what originally was described as renovation of its space, would actually shutter for good.
An employee of Bound'ry sister restaurant South Street told the Scene a different restaurant concept will soon open within the space.
Word this week that Eakin Partners has landed Del Frisco’s Grille as a future tenant for its under-construction 1201 Demonbreun (read more here) may not be the high-profile Gulch's last bit of restaurant news for now.
Specifically, mixed-use tower Twelve|Twelve (located next to the aforementioned 1201) may soon have a tenant for its ground-level retail/restaurant space that fronts 12th Avenue.
With the Post editorial offices located in a building across the street from the 23-story Twelve|Twelve, we have a front row view of the happenings. Various prospective restaurant operators and officials have been spotted on the site — including, recently, those with M Street Entertainment Group (think Virago, Kayne Prime and Whiskey Kitchen, all of which are located one block north of Twelve|Twelve).
Ray Henlser, who co-developed Twelve|Twelve with Florida-based Stiles Corp., said progress is being made in landing a tenant.
“I can only confirm that we are working to finalize a deal with a local restaurateur,” Hensler told the Post in an email.
Local entities believed to be interested in the space could not be reached for comment.
A Charleston-based upscale women's apparel and footwear boutique plans to soon open its first store in Tennessee in the CityPark development on Franklin Road in Brentwood. Copper Penny will take up space in Building E of CityPark's 40,000-square-foot retail section, sitting close to the Hilton Garden Inn being built adjacent to the Mooreland historic home. The CityPark site will be the ninth location for Copper Penny, which first opened its doors about 25 years ago.
