Nashville’s New Neighborhood Shops You Need to Know About

A crop of new retail spots has opened in the past year and a half, and together contribute to Nashville’s growth by introducing everything from locally sourced eats to chemical-free beauty products. Thanks to the brave souls behind the businesses, we now have new destinations for fashion, beauty, food, home decor and gifts. The spaces these shops call home are as compelling as the goods on their shelves. Swing by and be mesmerized by their offerings — and be prepared to walk away with a few things!

Kitchen and Pantry

Bare Bones Butcher

Opened in January 2017
Neighborhood: The Nations

906 51st Ave. N., Nashville, TN 37209 • (615) 730-9808
Hours: Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

This small butcher shop and grocery brings meat, cheese and fresh produce, as well as olive oil, vinegar and spices to The Nations. Their specialty is in whole-animal butchery, meaning you can take home fresh cuts of grass-fed beef, grain-finished beef, heritage pork, sausages, deli meats, forcemeat stocks and more (all of which are made in-house). Wesley Adams and Patrick Davidson honed their butchery talents at Porter Road Butcher before opening a place of their own. Shop the market to knock everything else off your grocery list. And if you can’t wait to eat, grab a sandwich or cup of chili to enjoy there.

The experts will be more than happy to help you find the perfect cut of meat. Image: Bare Bones Butcher

933 Woodland St., Ste. C, Nashville, TN 37206 • (615) 915 2335
Hours: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

No one knows knives better than a chef. And it’s likely no one knows knives better than two chefs who between them have graced the kitchens of acclaimed restaurants, including French Laundry, Restaurant August, Chateau de Montcaud, Benu and Townhouse Restaurant. Jacqueline Blanchard and Brandt Cox founded Coutelier in New Orleans in 2015 to provide the culinary community with the proper tools: hand-forged steel knives. Jacqueline’s travels to Japan introduced her to cutlery with an unrivaled quality and craftsmanship. The pair made their way to Nashville earlier this year to open the store’s second location in East Nashville. At Coutelier, you will find hand-forged knives sourced from artisans around the world, as well as a curated selection of kitchen tools and accessories. You don’t have to be a professional chef to shop here!

There is something about thoughtfully chosen cheese paired with accoutrements, all artfully arranged on a covetable cheese board, that is irresistible. Whether it be for a formal get together or an afternoon treat, cheese plates reign supreme in the world of snacks. Sisters Danielle and Casey Deak celebrate the cheese plate at Follow me Cheese, a specialty cheese and pantry shop on Fatherland Street. Their selection includes (roughly) 20 hand-picked, cut-to-order cheese (sourced from Tennessee to Spain and places in between). In addition to the regional and international cheeses, you will find pre-packaged cheeses, meats, accoutrements and gifts — all of which can be combined to create the perfect cheese plate!
