Nashville’s second oldest restaurant, meat-and-three Pie Wagon, will reopen with new owners and apparently will serve alcohol, according to a July 25 agenda document from the Metro Beer Board. The 96-year-old Pie Wagon just closed back in April, due to Metro Water Department’s mandated plumbing upgrades that former owner David Biggs deemed “too expensive to do and stay profitable.”
An industry insider dropped in and grabbed some photos and noted flatscreen TVs going up in the space. The owners told the source they’re keeping the original name and that they will remain a meat-and-three. A post to the old Pie Wagon’s Facebook page also confirmed the reopening. “The former Pie Wagon Restaurant has closed. A totally new Pie Wagon Restaurant will be opening in July with a new menu and new ownership,” the post read. Another post hinted the new iteration will open “very soon”.
