It’s time to bid farewell to yet another longtime Nashville restaurant — West End staple Tin Angel hosts its final dinner service on Saturday, March 23, according to the Nashville Scene.

After thirty-two years of running restaurants seven days a week, owners Rick and Vicki Bolsom are heading into retirement. For them, that means a long-awaited break and selling both the building and their longtime restaurant, located at 3201 West End Avenue.

The Bolsoms got their start in the Nashville restaurant scene in 1987 when they opened Cakewalk Cafe — hiring Deb Paquette to run the kitchen. The team eventually converted Cakewalk to Zola, which closed in 2010.

Tin Angel opened in 1993 with the intent of serving as an “elevated meat-and-three”. It got is name from a departed restaurant in Greenwich Village, which appeared in a Joni Mitchell song.

Nashville-based Grace Development eventually plans to open another restaurant in the space.
