Spring Hill residents have just hit the restaurant jackpot. 55 South, Downtown Franklin’s popular eatery that opened a second location in Brentwood last summer, will open its third restaurant at 2086 Wall St. on Tuesday, March 20.
“55 South has already made a home in both Franklin and Brentwood, and we’re thrilled to bring another dining option to the Spring Hill community,” said Sharon Davis, director of operations and development at McConnell Hospitality Group. “For diners who haven’t tried 55 South, we are excited to introduce our menu and atmosphere. For those who are already fans of our Franklin and Brentwood locations, we’re happy to offer favorite dishes closer to home.”
Chef Jason McConnell offers fare that is often found along the stretch of Interstate 55 that runs all the way from Memphis to New Orleans, also known as 55 South. The highly anticipated restaurant will be neighbored by Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint (opening later this month) and a soon-to-be-announced fast-casual concept by McConnell that will specialize in tacos, tortas, and margaritas. The restaurant “campus” will share outdoor dining space, including a beer garden that links all three restaurants. Brunch will also be offered following the initial opening, including a limited menu of breakfast staples, along with the regular lunch and dinner menus. Drink specials will be available with the launch of brunch, such as a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar, along with two-for-one mimosas.
55 South is owned by Jason McConnell, who is also the executive chef and owner of McConnell Hospitality Group. This restaurant continues McConnell’s partnership with Fresh Hospitality, whose other partnerships include Biscuit Love, The Grilled Cheeserie and Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint. The neighboring restaurants will add to the ever-growing community, and the connectivity of the concept offers diners restaurant options that were not previously available in Spring Hill.
