Nashville gets a new non-deep-fried dining option when True Food Kitchen opens in Green Hills on Wednesday, September 26. The health-driven, Phoenix-based restaurant most recently garnered national attention when they announced that Oprah became a “significant equity investor” in July. Job seekers can get in on the action on Monday, August 13 when True Food kicks off their hiring with a job fair at the new Nashville location.

Located at 3996 Hillsboro Pike on the ground floor of the new Vertis Green Hills condo building, Nashville’s True Food Kitchen spans over 7,700-square-feet with an open kitchen and ample outdoor patio seating. The space features natural woods and incorporates earthy elements and greenery, including indoor and outdoor garden basins holding fresh herbs and spices for the kitchen. Eco-friendly materials abound throughout, and old soda bottles reincarnate as dining chairs.

True Food Kitchen zeroes in on the principles of its co-founder and integrative medicine expert Dr. Andrew Weil’s “anti-inflammatory food pyramid.” The opening marks Nashville’s first introduction to the brand, which has rapidly expanded to more than 20 locations across the country.

Look for a seasonally rotating menu with a heavy emphasis on vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Some signature dishes include the spaghetti squash casserole, grass-fed steak tacos, a quinoa burger, and some new fall options like butternut squash pizza and a dashi ramen bowl. They’re also known for their dessert squash pie. The bar offers fresh-pressed fruit and vegetable juices, gluten-free cocktails, bio-dynamic wines, and local beers. Kids can choose from an almond butter sandwich, an organic pizza, or a chicken teriyaki bowl. They’ll add a new much-needed brunch option for Green Hills — available on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
