Historic Germantown has been showing serious growth for years now, with new businesses, new construction and impressive rehabs popping up all over the neighborhood seemingly nonstop. But 2014-2015 might usher in Germantown’s full establishment as a food-lover’s paradise. 

The stylish urban enclave already has a host of fine-dining favorites — like Rolf and Daughters and City House (which, coincidentally, were both just named among the "Best Restaurants in the South" by Southern Living). But so, so many more are apparently on the way.

Check out just a few of the new fooderies set to open doors in Germantown in the coming months:
  • James Beard nominee/Chattanoogan chef Daniel Lindley is getting ready to open “regional and seasonally focused American” restaurant 5th & Taylor in the Flats at Taylor Place in the fall.
  • The new development at Sixth and Taylor that already houses coworking/learning space The Skillery and Pro Vita Fitness will welcome two other residents in the coming months: Steadfast Coffee (which is currently serving out of The Skillery 7 to 2 on weekdays, and plans to open in the fall), and neighborhood pub McGavock’s (which I’ve heard will serve barbecue and beer and the like). I haven’t heard a planned opening date on the latter, but I’m looking forward to it.
  • Nashville Tea House, which’ll serve organic and fair trade teas and “all the best Nashville eats” is planning to open up on Taylor St. in September.
Into the idea of living within walking distance of all this delicious stuff? I’d be glad to help you find the perfect Germantown home. Drop me a line.
