About Mere Bulles
In June of 2000, Mere Bulles moved a few miles south of downtown Nashville to Maryland Manor, a historic plantation-style farmhouse and former estate home in Brentwood. The Mansion itself was built in 1942 with bricks salvaged from a previous historic building that was torn down near the present site, thus giving Maryland Manor it’s authentic Old South appearance. The Maryland Farms business district and neighborhood where the current location thrives derive its name from the once-grand 400-acre estate.

Today, Mere Bulles is an active participant in the community and continues to be a beloved local tradition. Mere Bulles continues to serve the Nashville business community as well as its neighbors and out-of-town guests. With a rich, long history, the word has spread to out-of-town visitors who enjoy the stories and are always greeted with a new-old Southern Dining experience.
