New Italian Restaurant to Open at Green Hills Mall

North Italia

As the Green Hills Mall continues to expand, the mall announced a new restaurant slated to open this month.

North Italia is bringing its signature, handcrafted Italian cuisine with an opening on Wednesday, August 28, as part of the recent redevelopment of The Mall at Green Hills. The Fox Restaurant Concepts brand will introduce Nashville diners to its housemade pastas, pizzas and small plates in a warm and welcoming atmosphere that’s comfortable enough for a casual lunch and special enough for a celebratory dinner.

North Italia creates every dish on its extensive menu with the freshest ingredients, consistently delivering quality Italian favorites made from scratch. Serving lunch, dinner, weekday happy hour and weekend brunch, menu highlights include the Grilled Artichoke with sea salt, truffle, Grana Padano cheese and lemon aioli; Short Rib Radiatori with Parmesan cream, fresh horseradish, wilted arugula and herbed breadcrumbs; as well as Chef’s Daily Pizza and a selection of classic Italian desserts. North Italia also offers a kids’ menu with a variety of childhood favorites, from spaghetti to grilled cheese.

As for libations, the cocktail menu is expertly crafted by Mat Snapp, beverage director of Fox Restaurant Concepts. Popular signature cocktails include the Quiet Italian Gentleman, a hearty cocktail made with Bulleit Rye, Carpano Antica, Campari and amaretto; Life in Italics, a refreshing sipper featuring Aviation Gin with Italicus Rosolio, peach, lavender and tonic; and the Sicilian Margarita, a vibrant burst of flavor featuring Gran Centenario Anejo, Solerno blood orange and lime. Guests can also sip on locally crafted brews and an impressive selection of red and white wines.

At 7,000 square feet, the Nashville location of North Italia boasts a full bar and expansive dining room and patio. The Green Hills location is currently hiring for all positions. Those interested in being a part of the North Italia family are encouraged to apply online here or stop by the job fair taking place August 5–10 from 10 a.m.–6 p.m. at North Italia; walk-ins are welcomed.
