We enjoy the energy of the growing neighborhood and appreciate the walkability and proximity of other great restaurants, bars, coffee shops and retail shops—including our neighboring gift store Hostus House—that will continue to make the Nations a must-visit destination for both locals and visitors alike.https://www.51northtaproom.com/

Bacon & Caviar
Bacon & Caviar began as the competition BBQ team of Paul Johnson and Ed Smith roughly ten years ago at Memphis in May, but requests from friends and acquaintances to do small events eventually spun the venture out into a full blown business.

Both locations and B&C's full-service catering arm offer food that is deeply southern in origin but with an upscale modern twist.http://baconandcaviar.com/

The Corner Market Catering Company
The original Corner Market was founded in 1988 by Emily and Jim Frith. It was Nashville’s original and most celebrated gourmet grocery, but it was so much more! It was a neighborhood hangout and a great lunch spot. It was the best place to buy fish, artisanal cheese, organic produce, and fabulous groceries from near and far. It spawned some of Nashville’s greatest chefs, who prepared inspired and amazing food to take home.
After a 16 year run, the Corner Market closed in 2004. It was the end of an era. But Emily and Jim stayed in the kitchen, and started a thriving catering business. In 2007, they purchased the Catering Company at 850 Hillwood Blvd. In addition to catering weddings, luncheons, cocktail parties, and corporate events, they also provide wholesale prepared foods for the Produce Place, and make vast quantities of the famous Sesame Vinaigrette salad dressing.
In early 2011, the Catering Company evolved into the Corner Market Catering Company. Emily and Jim connected their catering kitchen with small retail spot next door, where the same wonderful prepared foods are available to our friends. Come see us in our tiny new retail store brimming with good things to eat!
Childhood friends Darek Bell and Andrew Webber hit a snag while working on a prototype bio-diesel plant, causing Andrew to remark that making whiskey would be much more satisfying.

Corsair’s innovative and adventurous spirits have won 41 medals at international spirits competitions and have been called "hand crafted small batch ultra premium booze for badasses," -- high praise that we not only love reading, but also agree with.http://www.corsairdistillery.com/

After all, it’s just a burger joint…right? Sort of. But not really, actually. Farm Burger is defined by its mission, its farms, its team, and its family.
In 2008 our cofounders Jason Mann, an organic farmer & rancher and George Frangos, a hospitality veteran, attempted to answer that question with a single idea: redefine the burger by bringing together a community of ranchers, farmers, chefs, restaurateurs and eaters.
We depend on local farmers, ranchers and land stewards to make your burger as good as it is. From our beef to our tomatoes to our compostable containers to our owners, Farm Burger is sustainable, local, humane, and helping to reroute our food system to function more like an ecosystem than a corporation. Our goal is to connect soil, animal, plant, rancher, butcher, chef & customer…all in a simple chicken wire basket.https://farmburger.com/

Love & Exile Wines
With time running out until he was deported back to Canada, Tyler Alkins had to start a new business or be forced to leave the place he called home in Nashville, TN. So he decided to do what he always dreamed; make wine.
And though Tennessee is better known for whiskey, Tyler saw an opportunity to create a wine that was approachable in its taste, price, and presentation. So he recruited some of the most well-known winemakers from Italy and California to teach him processes perfected over centuries to create a wine that’s expertly crafted and perfectly chuggable.
The wine they create together is brought back to Nashville where it is finished and bottled or canned locally in a winery that Tyler and the small team built in an abandoned car garage less than a mile from downtown called Nashville Urban Winery. NUW now serves as the home for L&E and is a high end event space for events, concerts, tastings, and has an on-site Wine Shop that sells the full line of Love and Exile wines.

For this reason, our prized Tennessee Whiskey and Bourbon are a few years from release. The oak barrels only ask for time to work their magic, and as a self-respecting Tennessee Whiskey distiller, we’re not about to mess with what works.

Trazo Meadery is family owned and operated by David, Becky, and Travis Powell. We are proud to be the first Meadery in Tennessee. The origins of our mead run deep in our family, dating back to Travis’s beekeeping adventure.
It took a while to figure out how to take the three ingredients and turn them into a delicious mead. The first batch we made turned to vinegar. One bottle spontaneously popped its cork because we bottled it before the fermentation process stopped. After much experimentation, David hit upon the perfect combination of honey, water, and yeast. His first successful batch won a gold medal from the Tennessee Viticultural and Oenological Society.
Every bottle we produce draws from our family heritage, and we are proud to be able to share it with you.http://www.trazomead.com/
