NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Nashville's highly anticipated downtown food hall has been given a name.

Assembly Food Hall will be apart of the upcoming Fifth + Broadway development which will include shopping, a residential tower and the new home of the National Museum of African American Music.

“We wanted the name of the food hall to reflect the Southern tradition and culture rooted in Nashville,” said Joseph A. Magliarditi, president and CEO of The Food Hall Co. “The name ‘Assembly Food Hall’ is a nod to an authentic gathering place in the South, one that welcomes locals and visitors alike and features a snapshot of the most iconic dishes and entertainment Music City has to offer. We want Assembly Food Hall to be Nashville’s gathering place.”

The nearly 100,000 square foot dining and entertainment space will host 30 food stalls, cocktail bars, an onsite craft brewery and a rooftop venue for local musicians.

On Monday, Food Hall Co. announced three new restaurant partners that will be apart of the space: DeSano Pizzeria, Zulema's Taqueria and NoBaked Cookie Dough.

Other restaurants that have previously said they will be joining include Prince's Hot Chicken, The Pharmacy Burger, The Donut + Dog, Von Elrod's Beer Hall & Kitchen, Edley's Bar-B-Que, Hattie Jane's Creamery and Seed Hospitality.

Assembly Food Hall will employ between 400 to 600 people. It is scheduled to open in fall 2020.
