Event Celebrates Nashville’s Local Restaurant Scene
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — From Jan. 16 to 22, Nashville Restaurant Week is ringing in the new year with delicious food, inviting locals and visitors alike to enjoy special menus and deals around town.
The 60+ participating restaurants are part of the Nashville Originals, Nashville’s independent restaurant association whose members are committed to sustaining Music City’s diverse dining culture. With member restaurants ranging from barbecue joints to steakhouses, there is something for everyone at every price point.
The biannual Nashville Restaurant Week allows participants to explore the best food that Nashville has to offer and snag deals that make dining at upscale member restaurants more affordable. Diners will have the opportunity not only to test an array of food genres, but also to support homegrown restaurants and get behind the #EatLikeALocal movement.
Originals member restaurants reach from The Gulch to East Nashville to Franklin and everywhere in between. The newest participant for the upcoming Nashville Restaurant Week is Fifty- First Kitchen & Bar located in The Nations.
Downtown Franklin’s Red Pony Restaurant is featuring a prix fixe menu for $39.17. Entrée options include shrimp and grits with applewood bacon and wild mushrooms or duck breast with butternut squash semolina and an herb braise. Chocolate bread pudding with coffee ice cream or carrot cake cheesecake with sea salt caramel tops off the meal.
