At 11 a.m., on Wednesday, May 2, highly anticipated Saltine officially opens its Nashville outpost. Restaurant openings on West End Ave. are few and far between these days, so the addition of this seafood and oyster-focused restaurant and bar by way of Jackson, Miss. is a big get.
Taking over the former home of Blackstone Restaurant & Brewery at 1918 West End Ave., the 9,000-square-foot eatery features a wide-ranging menu for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch from chef Steven Robilio, who also runs the kitchen at 4-Top Hospitality’s Amerigo next door.
The online menus list a variety of raw bar items, like oysters, seafood towers, shrimp and lobster spring rolls, and more. On the main menu, offerings vary from po’boys to Creole gumbo to hot chicken to ciopinno to ramen with a duck egg.
Saltine opens from 11 a.m. to midnight, on Monday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., on Friday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
