‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through Nashville,
No cars were bustling, but what was the deal?
Instead of slaving over Christmas Day feasts
Families relaxed, awaiting their treats.
Whether heading to pubs or heating up pans,
The Nashville Originals eased all of their plans.
Copper Kettle // At Copper Kettle, they believe in doing things the old-fashioned way: home-cooked culinary delights from around the world and right here at home in Nashville. For the holidays, Copper Kettle is making it easy for families to indulge in their homemade favorites, brown sugar glazed ham or a roasted turkey accompanied with a long list of sides and desserts, without all of the hassle of cooking and the mess it brings.
The deadline to place your Christmas order is Friday, December 18th and pick-up is on Wednesday, December 23rd. Not to worry though, each dish is served in a pan that you can refrigerate and easily heat up when your family is ready to feast. Place your order here.
Crow’s Nest // Need a place to meet up with your old friends in town for the holidays after the presents have been unwrapped and the table’s been cleared? Take your reunion to Crow’s Nest! The popular sports bar and restaurant in Green Hills will be open Christmas Day beginning at 6 p.m., serving a limited menu.
Fleet Street Pub // Located in the famous Printer’s Alley in the heart of downtown Nashville, Fleet Street Pub offers hungry roamers an authentic English experience. In addition to a wide selection of imported English beers, the dishes coming out of the kitchen from lunch to late night are about as British as their names (think: Queensway cock-a-leekie soup, the Baker Street burger, the Picadilly fish and chips or the Whitechapel Welsh rarebit).
Fleet Street Pub has also never closed on a holiday since its opening…because where else can a Brit get its post-holiday feast pint?? The pub will be open normal hours Christmas Eve and Christmas day serving the traditional menu. For hours, menu details and more, visit here.
McCabe Pub // McCabe Pub has had a spot on many Nashville families holiday tables for 34 years. The Sylvan Park staple’s annual holiday to-go menu features tea punch—a real Nashville original—soups and casseroles, not to mention a mile-long dessert list!
“My mom, my sister Elia and I are in the back making these desserts. This time of year, everyone in the family gives a hand,” says McCabe Owner and Manager Katie Dean on the array of cakes, pies and crunches they’ve dished out for decades. Make sure you get your order in by Tuesday, Dec. 22 at 10 p.m., and visit here for the full menu.
Provence Breads & Café // No holiday meal is complete without the perfect spread of bread and desserts and that’s where Provence Breads & Café wants to help out. The artisan Bakery & Café specializes in bringing the best gourmet breads, desserts and packaged gift items to Music City and you can now bring them to your holiday table!
Puckett’s Boat House // Puckett’s Boat House in downtown Franklin will be offering the same coastal-inspired holiday to-go menu as the riverside restaurant offered for Thanksgiving.
