As of Monday, May 11, Nashville restaurants are allowed to reopen at half-capacity. Many restaurants are choosing to remain closed (or continue serving take-out only), as others announce plans to return this Monday following the recommended spacing guidelines and with bars remaining closed.

Nashville officials originally said they would wait until there was a 14-day trend of stability or decline in cases before reopening dining rooms, but officials’ decision to bring back dine-in anyway now kicks off the first phase of a reopening plan outlined by Nashville Mayor John Cooper in late April.

Find here a list (that will be frequently updated) of restaurant dining room and patios as they begin reopening for service. Some restaurants like Lyra and Subculture plan to wait a little longer to reopen. Other owners say they also plan to wait and see before making the decision.

And note that checking a restaurant’s website or social media is often the best way to be sure to have the most current info.
