The new year brings new restaurant partners for a downtown dining and entertainment destination opening later this year. As construction continues on Assembly Food Hall, a 100,000-square-foot, multi-level food hall that will anchor the Fifth + Broadway mixed-use development, a new wave of restaurant partners are joining the project.

Thai Esane, Steam Boys, Smokin Chikin and The Liege Waffle Co. will join an impressive array of restaurants that are already on the roster of the world-class food hall. Some of those include Prince’s Hot Chicken, The Pharmacy Burger, Edley’s Bar-B-Que, Hattie Jane’s Creamery, Desano Pizzaria and NoBaked Cookie Dough.

“As Assembly Food Hall physically takes shape in the heart of downtown Nashville, we are proud of the  progress made behind the scenes as we carefully curate the best local and regional fare to represent Music City,” said David Daniels, senior vice president of marketing at The Food Hall Co. “Adding a popular Thai restaurant, along with bao buns, rotisserie chicken and waffles will complement our expansive choices for the ultimate dining experience for locals and visitors alike.”

  • Thai Esane has become a Nashville favorite since opening in 2014, serving popular Thai dishes from Pad Thai to Malaysian-style noodles. This will be the second location of Thai Esane for owner Nina Singto.
  • Steam Boys, with locations in Germantown and Hermitage, is well-known by locals for bao buns, dumplings and noodles.
  • Based in Clarksville, Smokin Chikin Rotisserie & Grill proudly serves gourmet rotisserie chicken inspired by diverse flavors from around the world. This will be the third location for owners Roger Khan and Mohsun Ghias.
  • The Liege Waffle Co. specializes in Belgian Liege waffles made with brioche-style dough and imported Belgian pearl sugar, baked on a cast-iron waffle press.

Opening late 2020, Assembly Food Hall will be a European-style dining and entertaining experience at Fifth + Broadway featuring more than 20 local and regional food vendors, a full-service restaurant and an expansive rooftop music and event venue. Additional restaurants will be announced leading up to the food hall’s opening later this year. For more information about Assembly Food Hall, visit foodhallco.com.
