Hot dog fans, barbeque enthusiasts, crêpe connoisseurs and foodies alike, this news is for you! There are several new eateries opening up their kitchens in Nashville this fall, adding to the delicious and unique mix of cuisine that already calls this city home. Make sure to keep your eyes (and stomachs!) on the look out for these buzz worthy new restaurants.
First, a Mt. Juliet original, Cori’s DogHouse chose Nashville as the perfect place to open their second location in August. While Nashville already has several restaurants that specialize in hot dogs, Cori’s shows minimal intimidation for the competition with its unique menu, which boasts 38 creative dog combinations. Not only are the concoctions unlike any around, they are served on thick, buttered and toasted New England style buns to make them even more tasty! In addition to hot dogs, Cori’s will serve bratwurst, kielbasa and Italian sausage as well as a few sandwich options.
Located at 106 29th Ave. N., just off of West End, Cori’s will have ample indoor seating, a sizeable outdoor patio and a beverage menu including both bottled and draft beers. Open daily, check their website for hours of operations and more information, http://www.corisdoghouse.com.
Just 15 minutes south in Cool Springs, Wholly Crêpe will begin to serve its dainty delicacies this October. The original café, located in Glen Falls, NY, is relocating to Franklin so that owner Paula Pike can be closer to family, including sister Donne-Lynn Greiner, whom she’ll be teaming up with in running the small café. Aside from crêpes both sweet and savory, Wholly Crêpe will offer a selection of salads, soups and gourmet coffee drinks, with hopes that the acquisition of a liquor license will bring opportunity for wine and beer in the months to follow their grand opening. Wholly Crêpe has plans to be located in the Meridian Development off of Carothers Parkway in Franklin.
Crêpes won’t be the only newbies in Cool Springs this fall. The 12th South neighborhood in Nashville is home to Burger Up, an original restaurant that opened last spring and has found extensive popularity by Nashvillians—so much so that a second location will be opening soon in Cool Springs. Burger Up was voted as the Best New Restaurant, Best Success Story, No. 2 Burger and No. 2 Fries in last years Nashville Scene “Best of 2010 Poll,” which may be an indication of what will be continued success and satisfied stomachs at their second location.

For those who can’t get enough of that sweet, Southern barbeque, The Pie & The Pig on White Bridge Road may just be the place for you. While some may remember its’ former location on Charlotte Pike, the new restaurant offers buzz worthy barbeque and a menu sure to please. Since his beginning days in the business, owner John Hamilton has made big changes, including substantially building up his catering business and getting his name out around town. The Pie & The Pig is a buffet-style lunch counter, where visitors will find classic Southern barbeque, red-and-white checkered tabletops and a welcoming, intimate interior. From pulled pork to chicken breasts, baked beans to fresh slaw, it offers the same simple dishes your grandmother used to make. The restaurant is open Monday through Friday 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, visit their website at https://www.pigandpie.net.
