Polish up on your foodie filters, Nashville - next week is Restaurant Week, brought to you by Nashville Originals! We at Puckett's are proud members of this group, and in fact, I sit on the board with a bunch of other insane awesome restauranteurs. For those of you that don't know, Nashville Originals is a non-profit independent restaurant association dedicated to sustaining the Independent Restaurant as a fixture of Nashville's culture and community. We have a wide variety of members in both Davidson and Williamson County, and almost all of them participate in Restaurant Week. You can find a full list of those restaurants here.
So what is Restaurant Week? Basically twice a year, your favorite local restaurants offer special menu items and deals that are a crazy value. The price points are $20.15 or $30.15 and typically come in the form of a 3 course meal, though offerings vary between restaurants. Our winter series will be kicking off this coming Monday, January 19th and run through the subsequent Sunday, January 25th. We have a ton of fun and get to meet a lot of new people that use this week as an opportunity to try restaurants they've never had a chance to get to before. And we take LOTS of pictures. This year we'll have a photo booth at our restaurants, so be on the lookout for that!
I wanted to give you a little sneak peak at what we're doing at Puckett's in Downtown Nashville and Puckett's Boat House in Franklin so that you can start planning your week now.

There you have it! What sounds good to you? Who are you excited to check out next week?
Please note that Puckett's Grocery in Franklin will be participating in Restaurant Week but we are keeping it low key this year since we were booked for 3 private events well in advance of the Restaurant Week dates being announced. The dates we are closed in Franklin for dinner are Monday 1/19, Tuesday 1/20 and Saturday 1/24. We will have our specials available all 7 days for lunch and on the nights we're open. We are sorry for the inconvenience!
