NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Assembly Food Hall announced its plans to open in downtown Nashville during the spring of 2021.

The 100,000-square-foot European-style dining hall will be placed at the nearly finished Fifth + Broadway development. The property will include shopping, residential and business towers and the National Museum of African American Music. Fifth + Broadway's office tower has already begun tenant move-ins and the apartment tower is now open to residents. The NMAAM is set to open this fall.

On Wednesday, three new restaurant partners were also announced. The Donut Distillery from East Nashville, Saffron, an Indian kitchen from Franklin, and Oke Poké, a fast-casual Hawaiian restaurant, have joined the list of restaurants that will fill Assembly Food Hall.

Other previously-announced restaurant partners include Desano Pizzaria, Edley's Bar-B-Que, Hattie Jane's Creamery, NoBaked Cookie Dough, Prince's Hot Chicken, Smokin Chikin, Steam Boys, Thai Esane, The Liege Waffle Co., and The Pharmacy Burger.

“Now more than ever, restaurant partners are attracted to the food hall model due to the ease of operations and lower financial risk. We’re seeing that momentum and excitement at Assembly Food Hall and are well-positioned for a successful opening in spring 2021,” said David Daniels, senior vice president of marketing at The Food Hall Co., Assembly Food Hall’s parent company. “We are excited to announce these new restaurants as part of our expanding deep roster offering a Taste of Music City in one destination for locals and visitors alike.”

Assembly Food Hall will house 30 food stalls, cocktail bars and a rooftop venue for local musicians.
