A 100,000-square-foot food hall slated for Fifth and Broadway, a mixed-use retail and entertainment hub under construction in downtown Nashville, now has an official name and newly announced tenants, The Food Hall Co. announced Monday, Aug. 12.

Assembly Food Hall, which is expected to open in fall 2020, will be home to more than 20 local and regional restaurant groups, according to The Food Hall Co., a Plano, Texas-based company specializing in bringing restaurants together under one roof.

In addition to unveiling the venue's name, the company announced its third wave of restaurants, including Nashville-based eateries DeSano Pizzeria, Zulema’s Taqueria and NoBaked Cookie Dough. Previously announced tenants include Prince’s Hot Chicken, The Donut + Dog, The Pharmacy Burger, Edley’s Bar-B-Que and Hattie Jane’s Creamery.

“We wanted the name of the food hall to reflect the Southern tradition and culture rooted in Nashville,” said Joseph A. Magliarditi, president and CEO of The Food Hall Co, in a news release. “The name ‘Assembly Food Hall’ is a nod to an authentic gathering place in the South, one that welcomes locals and visitors alike and features a snapshot of the most iconic dishes and entertainment Music City has to offer.”

Additional restaurants will be announced leading up to Assembly Food Hall's fall 2020 opening, according to the release. www.foodhallco.com.
