The Titans Press Box Brings a Casual Approach To Upscale Dining

Inviting guests to “Travel Like a Titan,” this full-service restaurant and bar adopts a casual approach to upscale dining with its “lived-in luxury” feel. Spanning a generous 3,967-square-foot area, its soulfully modern interior design, inspired by its Titans namesake, features shades of blue throughout the space and is enriched by subtle football-inspired abstract designs.

An expansive 44-foot oval-shaped bar is the focal point of the dining room, framing the “Ring of Fire,” a one-of-a-kind sculpture created by celebrated local artist Herb Williams that pays homage to the Tennessee Titans’ New Stadium Project. Tables and banquettes span the dining room, exuding a welcoming atmosphere that is seamlessly complemented by its exquisite design.

Boasting a made-to-order, chef-inspired menu, The Titans Press Box offers a daily breakfast, lunch and dinner, and bar menu. The breakfast menu, served from 3:30am to 11:00am, ranges from classic breakfast items to specialties like The Titans French Toast, stuffed brioche with chocolate hazelnut mascarpone filling, topped with sliced strawberries, blueberries, and candied almond crunch, and Biscuits & Chorizo Gravy, buttery biscuits and scrambled eggs, smothered in house-made roasted poblano chorizo gravy and topped with poblano relish.

The lunch and dinner menu, served from 11:00am until the final flight of the day, features appetizers ranging from Shrimp Cocktail to Nashville Hot Onion Rings, soup and salads, classic and specialty burgers, and sandwiches with highlights like the Prime Rib Sandwich, with slow-roasted beef, shaved and served medium, pickled red onions, and horseradish aioli served on a club roll with a side of au jus.

Kitty Hawk Eat + Drink: Where Quality Meets the Hurried Traveler

Kitty Hawk, encapsulated by its slogan “Good Eats on the Fly,” is a fast-casual restaurant exclusive to Nashville International Airport. Sharing the space with Voodoo Doughnut, the restaurant boasts a bright, playful interior centered around Hawk, its affectionately named mascot.

The food menu, blending fresh ingredients and affordable fare, features made-to-order breakfast sandwiches and bowls, soup and salads, sandwiches, and sides.

Voodoo Doughnut Brings Its Magic to BNA®

Voodoo Doughnut makes its Nashville debut in partnership with Strategic Hospitality, filling the remainder of its shared space with Kitty Hawk. The iconic pink, black, and gold décor synonymous with the Portland-based brand adorns the vibrant interior, complimented by its black and white-checkered floor. The walls of Voodoo Doughnut feature a series of framed pieces of art celebrating the brand, one of which by local Nashville artist, Caitlin Mello, depicting the brand’s logo caricature, Baron Samedi.

A window from the dining room into the kitchen offers travelers a glimpse into the doughnut-making process, which are made fresh daily. Two spinning doughnut display cases showcase the innovative, handmade confections where Voodoo Doughnut will feature its craveable lineup, including the award-winning Maple Bar, Voodoo Doll, Homer, among other favorites for travelers to enjoy. Available by the doughnut or by the dozen, Voodoo Doughnut features raised, cake, vegan, and specialty options.
