8. Grilled Cheeserie
By January, permits had been filed to start renovating the building into a restaurant.
However, there is no timeline for when the restaurant will open except for a target of sometime in 2018. The building is split into two large sides, which separated the former tenants’ stores.
The Grilled Cheeserie, which features gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and other melts, has been on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. They were also featured on The Cooking Channel’s Eat St., voted Best Food Truck in The Nashville Scene and The Tennessean six years running, and were listed #3 on Mobile-Cuisine’s 2015 Top 10 Most Influential Food Trucks, #7 on thedailymeal.com’s 101 Best Food Trucks in America in 2015, and were recently honored with the 2016 Chairman’s Award for Small Businesses by the Nashville Business Incubation Center.
