Word is out regarding yet another high profile steakhouse hitting Nashville, as Charleston-based Indigo Road Restaurant Group's Oak Steakhouse has been announced as the anchor restaurant for the Westin Nashville, joining Decker & Dyer and rooftop bar L27 at the hotel currently under construction in SoBro.
According to a release, the contemporary steakhouse, which opened in Charleston, SC in 2005 and expanded with an Atlanta outpost in late 2014, will occupy 7,000 square feet and offer seating for 200 guests, with additional private dining space for up to 100. The space will feature "signature Oak design elements including exposed light bulbs, reclaimed wood and leather banquettes."
Looking at the other locations' menus, Oak's brunch and dinner offerings tick off all the usual steakhouse boxes with appetizers, shellfish towers, larger entrees, steaks and sides. The beverage program will include cocktails, a variety of beers and a wine list featuring 200 by the bottle and 20 by the glass.
Steve Palmer, managing partner for The Indigo Road Restaurant Group, whose other restaurants include The Macintosh, The Cocktail Club and Indaco, says that he has "wanted to open a restaurant [in Nashville] for a long time" and "[a]fter two years of searching for the right space" he finally found the right fit.
