GREEN HILLS - Restaurant news in the Green Hills neighborhood is a bit of a rarity, but Austin-based Freebirds World Burrito will finally open its doors on Tuesday, March 27. Only the second Freebirds’ store to open east of the Mississippi, the new location at 3800 Hillsboro Pike will be the first to offer a breakfast menu from 7 to 10:30 a.m. daily, as well as curbside pick-up.

EAST NASHVILLE - A commercial property located at 1414 Dickerson Pike is in line for a major upgrade, as Lyon Porter, owner of popular east side bed & breakfast Urban Cowboy, is teaming up with investors to revamp the Key Motel. According to the Nashville Business Journal, the hotel will include approximately 26 ‘affordable’ rooms, along with a pool and a yet-to-be-determined food and beverage outlet. [NBJ]

FRANKLIN - After nearly 80 years in business, one of Nashville’s oldest restaurants is going into expansion mode, as Elliston Place Soda Shop is opening a second location in Cool Springs. Slated for the former home of Puffy Muffin at 330 Mayfield Dr., the old school soda parlor, which nearly closed its original location back in 2011 due to a looming rent increase, should open by this summer.
