Update: Metro’s Chief Medical Director Dr. Michael Caldwell finally made the call on Friday, March 20, to halt dine-in service at all Davidson County restaurants, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Take-out orders, curbside pick-up, drive-thru, and delivery are still permitted.
As the global COVID-19 pandemic continues, many Nashville restaurants and bars are taking it upon themselves to close or completely change their models of service. These are two ways to help enforce social distancing, which slows down the spread of the novel coronavirus. Likewise, many are offering new delivery and takeout options as well. Here, Eater is tracking which businesses are or will temporarily close and which ones are changing their service models or hours.
Keep in mind many of these restaurants are selling gift cards and other merchandise to help support displaced staff and stay afloat.
Know of any other Nashville restaurants temporarily closing, shifting to pickup/delivery only, or changing hours due to coronavirus concerns? Let Eater know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
