Following in the footsteps of other supersized Restoration Hardware locations that have opened in recent years, the four-story outpost currently being built in Green Hills will offer food and beverage options from well-known Chicago restaurateur Brendan Sodikoff.
Sodikoff, founder and CEO of Chicago restaurant group Hogsalt (which counts Au Cheval, Doughnut Vault, Maude’s Liquor Bar, and more under its umbrella), partnered with the popular furniture store back in 2015 to launch RH Hospitality, an entity which oversees all food and beverage outlets related to Restoration Hardware. Its first venture, the 3 Arts Club Cafe (pictured below), opened in Chicago in the fall of 2015.
Located at 2101 Green Hills Village Dr. on the former site of Carrabba’s Italian Grill, construction on the 57,000-square-foot store began early last year. Online hiring posts for an executive chef, restaurant manager, and other Nashville personnel dating back to late December confirm the high-end retailer’s intentions. It’s not entirely clear as to what exactly this location will offer. But if the Chicago location, as well as the new Palm Beach, Fla. and Toronto stores that opened late last year are any indication, expect a large cafe with wine and coffee bars, accompanied by rooftop views from the 4th floor. Posted menus for the Chicago and Toronto cafes are virtually identical, so expect Nashville to follow suit
The Mall at Green Hills owner Taubman’s website pegs a spring 2018 opening for the store, so be on the lookout for more updates.
