Supper Club on Belcourt, an American steakhouse with roots in Memphis, is opening its second location in Nashville. The 2000 Belcourt Avenue restaurant in Hillsboro Village will open its doors to the public on Friday, October 6, bringing with it raw bar staples, steakhouse sides with luxe protein add-ons, and, of course, mammoth cuts of meat.
Much like its sister restaurant in Memphis, Supper Club on Belcourt is focused on steakhouse fare. “Nashville is a melting pot, and I love that about this city because my approach to food is focused on [fusing] flavors and techniques from my past experiences,” says Supper Club executive chef Brandon Truesdale.
At Supper Club, diners will find the usual raw bar suspects (oysters and butterfly shrimp) keeping company with more unexpected takes on seafood dishes (i.e. the Deep Sea Lobster Dawg with tempura-battered cold water lobster tail, spicy mayo, and sweet chili). Also on the menu: hearty entrees like a five-hour braised beef short ribs served over a five-cheese creamy polenta and the lobster mac and cheese. But it’s the proteins here that steal the show, like a 40-ounce prime-grade bone-in tomahawk wrapped in edible 24-karat gold.
Drinks include wines, beers, and cocktails with a focus on whiskey. The libations toe the line between familiar flavor combinations with more interesting ingredients. Case in point: the Suit and Rye made with bourbon and rye whiskey, fortified red wine, and Memphis BBQ house blend, and the tequila-forward Date Night mixed with Espelette pepper, lychee, fresh lime, and mint.
“The biggest difference between the two Supper Club locations is the style of each building,” says co-owner Joe Johnson. “Supper Club on 2nd in Memphis is located in a historic, 100-year-old, building in the heart of downtown, whereas Supper Club on Belcourt is in a modern, contemporary building with floor-to-ceiling glass windows.” The 4,800-square-foot space also includes two main dining rooms, two bar tops, and two private dining rooms punctuated with Art Deco flair, as well as an adjacent secret garden-esque outside patio that holds an additional 150 guests.
The original Supper Club, operated by Make a Play Hospitality, opened in Downtown Memphis in late August. Make a Play is also slated to open another fine dining venture — along with a cocktail club — in Hillsboro Village later this fall.
Supper Club on Belcourt’s hours will be from 5 to 11 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, and then from 5 to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Brunch will also be offered on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations can be made on Opentable.
