As severe storms and a 50-mile-long tornado ripped right through Nashville early this week while many slept, a growing list of over 40 restaurants around town are closed due to damage and loss of power. In the wake of tragedy, just as many restaurants, including some of the closed ones, have stepped up offering free food, discounts, and donations to help those affected. And meanwhile, droves of volunteers all over the city and prepping and delivering meals to those in need.
North and East Nashville, Germantown, and Donelson saw some of the worst damage, but the following restaurants and bars remained open or have since reopened for business.
Please email Eater Nashville with any other open spots in the neighborhoods, and the list will be updated frequently as businesses regain power and restore damage.
