Another bar and restaurant headed to Germantown

Another restaurant group has its eye on Germantown, the epicenter of Nashville’s recent restaurant boom.

According to a recently filed building permit application, Sedona Taphouse is planning to set up shop at 1120 3rd Ave. N., inside the Broadstone Germantown apartment complex. The permit has not yet been granted.

Sedona Taphouse is the name of a Virginia-based chain owned by DJB Hospitality LLC. Its website describes the chain as a place designed “to serve fine craft beer and wine lovers alike in a warm, natural and sophisticated environment.” The chain has six current locations in Virginia, Michigan, Connecticut and New York, with two additional locations – including one in Lexington, Ky. – billed as “coming soon” on its website.

DJB Founder Dennis Barbaro, who could not immediately be reached for comment, has previously discussed his plans to bring Sedona to Tennessee. Last summer, Barbaro told Richmond Biz Sense he had signed a franchise agreement to develop a Nashville location.

The Broadstone Germantown, which opened its doors to residents last year, is one of a slew of recent projects contributing to the trendy neighborhood’s surge in available apartments. (How big is that surge? Nearly 3,000 apartments and condos are proposed, underway or newly opened in Germantown, according to our Crane Watch map.)

Representatives of Alliance Residential Co., the Phoenix-based developers of Broadstone Germantown, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The permit application calls for work on 3,000 square feet of space for the restaurant, with a price tag of $1 million.

New Germantown Restaurants – Nashville

Near the corner of Jefferson Street and Fourth Avenue North, amid Nashville’s booming Germantown and just a block from First Tennessee Park, sit two soon-to-open restaurants whose journey underscores the occasionally herculean effort required to bring restaurants from concept to reality in Music City’s white-hot food scene.

They are Lulu and Geist, the latest restaurants from Miranda Whitcomb Pontes, a restaurateur who made her name founding Frothy Monkey and Burger Up, among other Nashville hotspots. With Lulu set to open this month and Geist “probably three months out,” Pontes is emerging from the lengthy permitting process, construction delays and other bumps in the road that restaurateurs throughout Nashville encounter amid the city’s boom.

It’s just “the nature of Nashville,” right now, Pontes said. In addition to the standard challenges (like the time it takes to schedule inspections), the historic building housing Geist brought with it additional requirements of preservation, she said, which helps explain the multi-year lag between the lease getting signed and its eventual opening.

As for Lulu, on top of the traditional delays, Pontes has made several changes to the concept since she confirmed plans for the spot in September 2015. Initially envisioned as a full-service restaurant, Lulu will instead embrace a fast-casual model. Pontes just recently decided to change things up in yet another way, moving food preparation from the back of the house to the area behind the bar, in full view of patrons.

“I was uncomfortable for a while because I get really emotionally attached to the concept … which is a terrible thing to be in business,” Pontes said of the decision to rearrange things. “Now I see, even though [the layout change] probably put us more weeks behind and more over budget, it’s really healthy for the long-term, for success.”

Both the rejiggered restaurant design — something the restaurateur hopes will embody “the energy” she wants the fresh-focused eatery to have — and the shift from full-service to fast-casual came at the advice of peers and mentors whose opinion she trusts, Pontes said.

Dropping the full-service model was a hard choice, she said, because she wanted to ensure the restaurant offered a spirit of hospitality that doesn’t end once the customer swipes a credit card. At the same time, she knows people want to have the speed and convenience that format can provide. Her goal? Be sure to marry the two.

“I’m willing to entertain the fast casual, if you can guarantee that we’re going to have enhanced hospitality until they walk out the door,” Pontes said. “It’s going to feel like a full-service restaurant after you swipe your card, or I’m not interested.”

NASHVILLE, TN – German culture in a southern setting is the backdrop for the Nashville Oktoberfest, returning to historic Germantown Oct. 7, 8 & 9, where festival goers eat, drink and celebrate their German heritage (or lack of it). A Tennessee tradition since 1980, the Oktoberfest is Nashville’s oldest festival and the Largest Fall Festival in the South!

“This year we’re incorporating more activities like the Oktoberfest Beer Slide, which will be Nashville’s only, and a Bratwurst Eating Contest – plus more than 35 restaurant & food vendors on site and more than 110 craft booths,” states Michael King, event producer and the owner of Monell’s Restaurants in Nashville. “Of course one of the main staples at Oktoberfest is the beer, and this year we are celebrating the 500th anniversary of Paulaner Brewery. Every Draft Beer Station has 3 kinds of Paulaner beer imported from Germany – plus a special Oktoberfest brew from Munich. This year we’ve got nine Draft Beer Stations, plus Beer Tasting Gardens featuring 10 breweries and 18 different beers!” adds King.

The Nashville Oktoberfest is spread out over nine blocks in the historic neighborhood of Germantown just outside of downtown. The event caters to adults and kids of all ages. Two separate areas will be dedicated to children’s activities and feature Kids Zones, sponsored by Nashville Parent Magazine.

Another big draw is the free live music. There are three separate music stages at the event – each featuring German music and famous Oktoberfest Oompah bands.

More than 150,000 people are expected to attend and admission is FREE to the public. Visitors can purchase a VIP pass for the ultimate Oktoberfest experience.

Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint

Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint
1123 3rd Avenue North, Nashville, TN 37208


The What’s Cookin’ Germantown Crew had heard so much about Jack Brown’s we just had to try it for lunch. Well, we got a surprise when I ordered a cheese burger with onion and pickle. “We can’t do that today” the waiter replied. What? Out of all our vast wisdom we had failed to read the menu. Should we stay or should we go? We decided to stay and find out what the deal was that a burger joint didn’t sell the gold standard of the hamburger world.

Here’s the deal:

Each day they have a special. We were there on Thursday so it was the  Nacho Libre.
The Nacho What? – Burger topped with diced black olives and jalapeños, Pepper jack cheese, green onions mixed in sour cream, re-fried beans and house made tortilla chips.

We said “OK give us one”

They don’t just have one burger available each day they have more.Take a look: Menu

While we were waiting we took a look around the place.








Looks good , smells better and BOOM the taste was out of this world. No wonder the place was filling up. They get so busy they have valet parking. For a burger Joint? YES !!

Oh look, they have a patio and Corn Hole:

You can walk from Germantown a quick Uber or Lift from downtown Nashville.
Come on — you will want a beer or two. Enjoy yourself.

We give Jack Brown’s a Five Finger lick rating.




Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint is the childhood dream of two best friends, Aaron Ludwig and Mike Sabin. They had always talked about opening their own bar back in the day while collecting beer cans and skateboarding. Aaron had spent 15 years in the business world operating a ski and snowboard shop in Harrisonburg. Mike spent 20 years in South Beach Miami in the restaurant business. After one crappy day at work in 2008, Aaron called Mike to propose a “what if” scenario and the rest as the saying goes, is history. Aaron was into craft beer and Mike was a chef of 4 restaurants; a beer and burger joint was born.

The menu is purposely simple. Jack Brown’s is a bar, that sells a great burger. It is not a restaurant trying to please all tastes. They focus on: do one thing and do it right. There is an amazing menu of craft beer ranging from the local darlings to rare beers from around the world.

They designed the bar that they like hanging out in. They grew up as drinking buddies so it wasn’t too difficult a task. Although there might not be a rhyme or reason to the décor, it sure gives you something to talk about.

The staff is a key part of Jack Brown’s. They have been trained to guide customers through the world of beer and to make sure you have a good time.

Mike and Aaron hope you enjoy the experience of your beer and your burger and hope you have a blast when you’re here. Good food, good beer and good times.

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken
Total Time: 8 hr 45 min
Prep: 15 min
Inactive: 8 hr
Cook: 30 min
Yield:4 servings
For the dry brine:
1 whole chicken (about 3 pounds), washed, patted dry and cut into quarters
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the dip:
1 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon Louisiana-style hot sauce
For the dredge:
2 cups all-purpose flour
Sea salt
Vegetable oil, for frying
For the spicy coating:
1/2 cup lard, melted and heated (or hot frying oil)
3 tablespoons cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Pickle slices, for serving
Dry-brine the chicken: In a bowl, toss the chicken pieces with 1 tablespoon kosher salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper; cover and refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours.
Make the dip and dredge: In a bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs and hot sauce. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and 2 teaspoons sea salt.
Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, then dip in the milk mixture, then in the flour mixture again, shaking off the excess after each step.
Heat the vegetable oil in a deep-fryer to 325 degrees F. Set a wire rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet and set aside. Working in batches, lower the chicken into the fryer and fry until crisp, 15 to 17 minutes for breast quarters and 18 to 20 minutes for leg quarters. Remove the chicken and let it drain on the rack.
Make the spicy coating: Carefully ladle the lard or frying oil into a medium heatproof bowl and whisk in the cayenne pepper, brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, the paprika and garlic powder. Baste the spice mixture over the hot fried chicken and serve immediately; garnish with pickles.
