The Tiny Town In Tennessee With The Most Scrumdiddilyumptious Restaurants
Franklin, Tennessee is known as one of the most beautiful small towns in the state – but did you know it is lauded for its wide span of eateries, too? This gorgeous small town evokes a sense of Mayberry and simplicity, but you can get as complicated as you want with their amazing restaurants. Whether you’d rather go for formal, casual or quick eats – this is your one stop town for everything good.
Franklin, Tennessee exploded on to the scene when the once quiet capitol city was granted the moniker, "The It City" by the New York Times. The small, suburban town has expanded both in population and girth in the past few years, somehow still managing to maintain the down home mentality of its locals.
Puckett's is a chain that began its local reign in Leipers Fork and traveling out to Nashville. This is where you bring the kids if you're looking for live music and a solid meat and three.
Located in a rustic and historic space on Main Street, Grays serves upscale southern fare with a solid Franklin-esque twist. A great spot for locals and visitors, its craft cocktails are inventive and fun, perfect for a celebratory evening out.
Merridee's Breadbasket is a bakery and restaurant that serves up delicious sandwiches and soups on homemade bread. Their desserts are also pretty phenomenal, and we'd recommend picking up one of their pies for good measure.
Updated southern classics are the name of the game at Red Pony. This is where you come for a romantic evening under low-lit lights, date night vibes and a menu that is expansive in taste and intimate in region.
Tupelo Honey is a chain found throughout the state, but Franklin wouldn't be the same without it. The beautiful space is great for Knoxville-ites or Chattanoogans who are looking for a taste of home.
Cork & Cow is where you go for fun, inventive cocktails, a unique atmosphere and meat and potatoes classics that keep you full for days. Located on Main Street, Cork & Cow is a fabulous spot for an upscale date night.
McCreary's Irish Pub and Eatery is a fun, low-key spot for a younger evening bound up by a whole lot of laughter. Come here to lean back and drink deep, to belly laugh with dear ones and keep them in stitches all the same.
