About Us

As Music City’s non-profit independent restaurant association, the Nashville Originals are local restaurateurs dedicated to sustaining the independent restaurant as a fixture of Nashville’s culture and community.

We have joined together to increase the visibility and viability of locally owned restaurants, so we can continue to exercise our individual creativity and style for your dining pleasure.

What Nashvillians eat—and where they eat–helps define our city. Our home-grown restaurants reflect who we are and lead the way in Nashville’s future development.

Nashville Originals member restaurants support one another. Together, we support local initiatives and charities, feeding the community that in turn supports us.

Gather. Eat. Enjoy life in our city’s unique restaurants: Nashville Originals.
