Jack's BBQ opening third location at Charlotte & 16th
This news appeared today in The Nashville Post:
Meanwhile, a little farther east on Charlotte, one of Nashville’s best-known barbecue joints has announced plans to open a new location in an up-and-coming area on the outskirts of downtown.
Veteran Nashville barbecue man Jack Cawthon will launch the third Jack’s Bar-B-Que location this spring at the intersection of Charlotte and 16th Avenue North.
Cawthon’s best-known restaurant is the popular Jack’s Bar-B-Que at 416 Broadway downtown. There’s also a Jack’s at 334 W. Trinity Lane.
The new restaurant will have 80 seats indoors and a 36-seat patio. We’ll see if it heralds more development in the Midtown portion of the Charlotte Avenue corridor, what with the new 28th/31st Avenue Connector linking North Nashville to Charlotte to West End, and some other big projects under way in Midtown.
This is the building that will house the new Jack's BBQ...the banner on the outside says that a Nuttin' But Wings is coming soon, but this image is from Google Streetview and could be dated.
Also some news on Headquarters offerings...looks like they'll be ready to open on Tuesday.
Headquarters, a charming little coffeehouse on Charlotte Avenue across from Richland Park, is opening its doors soon, perhaps as early as Tuesday.
Owned and operated by Louisa Green and her husband James, Headquarters fills a renovated storefront that James, a professional carpenter, has stylishly outfitted using reclaimed wood.
Headquarters will serve coffee from local roaster Roast Inc., along with pastries.
East Nashville’s Dozen bakery will supply some of the treats; another local bakery, Vegan Vee, will provide vegan and gluten-free versions.
Louisa Green said she’ll be serving up a signature espresso drink spiked with chocolate and cayenne, and a similar sweet-and-spicy flavor profile can also be found in the house roast that Roast Inc. created specifically for Headquarters. In addition, you can look for teas and herbal infusions from another local company, High Garden.
The Greens will open their coffeehouse early in the morning to supply morning java to folks heading down Charlotte to work. It will operate Monday through Saturday, and at least at first, it will close in late afternoon. Headquarters is at 4902 Charlotte Pike.
