Butchertown Hall is one of Nashville’s new favorite places to eat. It’s a Texas-inspired and German-influenced concept according to general manager Shane O’Brien. Created by restauranteur Terry Raley, owner of the Pharmacy and Holland House, Butchertown is inspired by his Texas Hill Country upbringing and favorite German and Mexican flavors fused together. Here is a look at this new restaurant that just opened on Valentine’s Day of 2015.
Where did the name come from?
Butchertown Hall was named after one of Germantown’s nicknames from a long time ago. When Germantown first saw German immigrants that were working at butchers in the neighborhood, the nickname “Butchertown” was started.
When you arrive, you’ll notice the smokey scent right away from the Grillworks Infierno 96 Grill. It’s actually one of only three of these grills in the country. You’ll love the beautiful natural light, high ceilings and the large open feel of the space. Among the two-top tables, four-top and community tables, there is a moss rock wall separating the dining area from the bar.
The restaurant can hold 130 indoors and 120 on the patio which will open in the spring. The dress code is casual attire and they do not take reservations. You can visit the restaurant daily from 11am-10pm or later, plus there is a special weekend brunch at 10am. The location is 1416 4th Avenue North in Nashville.
The restaurant offers beer, liquor and wine. There is a strong focus on the tequila and mescal, which isn’t accessible within 500 miles of Nashville making this a really exciting thing to try at Butchertown. Along with specialty tequilas and mescal, there is a small selection of well liquor and boutique wines.
The beer program at the restaurant is really important with small-batch, private beers made by local breweries. You’ll find brews from Little Harpeth, Jackalope, Blackstone, Czann’s and Bearded Iris. Not only are you getting local beer, but these breweries have made custom beers only found at Butchertown Hall.
Since the restaurant is focused heavily on meats, the outdoor smoke runs 24 hours a day requiring new wood every 30 minutes. You’ll find delicious meats like chicken, beef brisket and sausage, plus the menu offers fajitas, sandwiches, tacos and burgers.
