WAAAIITT! One second before we start, I'm getting my coffee. I'm sorry, I know. I'm being so #extra.
Restaurants That Opened THIS MONTH!

EG & Mc, a new cocktail bar and southern-rooted tapas spot took over the former home of the much-missed Garden Brunch Cafe. EG & Mc is the brainchild of Clint Gray, Derrick Moore, and EJ Reed (the crew behind Slim + Husky’s Pizza Beeria), alongside craft cocktail guru Gemaal Pratts of Aperitif. The menu is a refreshing and interesting one — with shared plates like cheddar bourbon fondue, stuffed lamb meatballs with cheese grits, and peach barbecue glazed candied yam mac and cheese on the menu alongside drinks like the EG&Mc signature drink with raisin-soaked Uncle Nearest, Amaro, vermouth, bitters, and chicory liqueur. 924 Jefferson Street (Eater Nashville )
South Indian restaurant 615Chutney ventured out to just west of the city center for its new home. 615Chutney began its life as a food truck, with a focus on gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian South Indian dishes. Some popular choices include samosas, pickled idli (steamed rice cakes with South Indian spices), Malabar parotta (a layered flatbread), and Chutneyville sambar (lentil-based vegetable stew cooked with dal and tamarind broth). 7075 Hwy 70 S (Eater Nashville )
Chilangos is the next opening inside Assembly Food Hall at Fifth + Broadway. The new Mexican taqueria from chef Joel Mendoza is located on the north side near DeSano, serving barbacoa tacos and other spit-grilled meats alongside cheesy quesaberria tacos. 5055 Broadway Place (Eater Nashville )
Chicken Guy, Guy Fieri’s fried fowl-focused chain, opened up adding to the plethora of chicken options peppering Nashville. Located in one of the buildings damaged in Nashville’s Christmas Day bombing, the restaurant also offers grilled chicken options in tender and in sandwich form, plus salads, plenty of fries, and a whopping selection of 22 sauces, plus apple cinnamon cereal shakes for a sweet finish. 139 2nd Avenue N (Eater Nashville )
