MIDTOWN - Following last month’s closing of the Hutton Hotel’s 1808 Grille as it undergoes a complete renovation, the restaurant is also getting a new name: WestEnd. The 120-seat restaurant is planned to open by the end of the year and will feature ‘progressively Southern cuisine’ from executive chef Chris Anderson, a new bar program and a coffee bar.

THE GULCH - Chef Andy Little and the team at Prima are launching a special limited time tasting menu paying homage to one of Nashville’s most iconic restaurants, Arnold’s Country Kitchen. Starting Friday, Oct. 20 and running through the end of November, the 10-course, $90 per person meal will feature dishes inspired by Arnold’s classics (with a mandatory nod to that spicy chocolate pie). Reservations are recommended and can be made by contacting the restaurant. [EaterWire]

Located at 429 Houston St., the 4,000-square-foot bar will have an industrial art deco vibe and will feature the bar and pool tables from the old Melrose Billiards location, plus ping pong tables and of course a full bar serving wine, beer and liquor.
