A First Look Inside Hillsboro Village’s Vibrant New Bagel Shop

The food truck adds a permanent home for their fresh baked bagels

Hillsboro Village scores a neighborhood bagel shop when Bare Naked Bagels opens on Wednesday, August 22. The new location at 2123 Belcourt Avenue is splashed with vibrant orange walls and boasts a large outdoor patio peppered with picnic tables and umbrellas for shade.

Bare Naked is not a new name for Nashville—it began as a food truck in 2014 when a group of upstate New York transplants noted a hole in the food truck market—none of them were serving bagels. Since 2014, Bare Naked has rolled and sold over 300,000 bagels across Music City.

The menu at the new restaurant expands to also include bagel sandwiches for breakfast and lunch, plus New York deli favorites like a reuben sandwich and meatballs. Beyond sweet bagels, desserts like a bread pudding and brownies await. On opening day, they’ll offer everything from standard plain and everything bagels to blueberry or jalapeno cheddar varieties (subject to change).

The crew behind the bagels—collectively called BNB Management—is made up of Justin Buttner, Robert Kane, and Ryan Buttner.

Bare Naked Bagels in Hillsboro Village will be open Tuesday through Sunday, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Eater got first dibs on the permanent location’s menu and a got an early glimpse of the space.
