Nashville Restaurant Week Extended After Storm

Posted at 10:07 PM, Jan 25, 2016

Many restaurants participating in the Nashville Originals Restaurant Week have extended special menus until Jan. 31 due to last week’s snow and ice.

Restaurant week was scheduled to run from Jan. 18-24, but the weather forced many restaurants to close, and many customers to cancel their reservations. 

The Nashville Originals website said, “Due to the few days of canceled reservations and restaurant closures, we’ve decided to extend Nashville Restaurant Week another six days to give everyone the chance to experience our city’s local food scene and take advantage of all of the event’s tasty offerings.” 

Nashville Originals is a group of locally owned and operated restaurants that hosts Restaurant Week twice a year.  During the event, participating restaurants offer special menus of food and desserts for discounted prices.

At The Yellow Porch in Berry Hill, the owner said Restaurant Week is normally one of the busiest of the year, but last week many tables were empty and the restaurant was forced to close Friday.

“We threw out the idea we would offer the special menu to customers this coming week, and they were receptive, so we decided to do that,” said Gep Nelson, Owner of The Yellow Porch.  “I think people are probably ready to get outside.  I think it will be good.”
