Scene Around Town: Welcome To The Neighbourhood

The Neighbourhood has opened it’s doors in what used to be known as Bleachers in the Maples Shopping Center in Franklin. What you won’t find when you walk in is any semblance of Bleachers. Very minimalist, the Neighborhood sports beautiful wood tables with butcher paper as tablecloths, a few scattered TVs, 24 beers on tap (mostly craft beers) and a very nice menu.

We enjoyed the Sweet and Stinky Fries which were AMAZING! Sweet Potato Fries with Gorgonzola and a jalapeno ranch dressing for dipping. My friends started with the Bleu Cheese Pecan Celery, which were healthy and sweet. They opted for the All American sliders, I went a different route: The Fully Loaded Brat! It’s hard to find good dogs or brats if you’re kind-of a snob about them like I am, but this didn’t disappoint. Grilled, juicy with sauerkraut, onions, bell pepper blend, cheddar, dijon mustard, and I went with no relish.

The service was great, and it deserves a return visit. So stop by and welcome The Neighbourhood to the neighborhood.

  1. Went there for lunch and was truly disappointed… The inside was amazing and nicely remodeled… But the beer selection on draft was extremely limited if your an American light beer drinker like myself. The menu left a lot to be desired!! No southern food on the menu what so ever. It was something you’d see in a more upscale Resturant… Not in a strip mall bar and grille… The prices were also extremely high… Might be a good place for all the transplants moving here to franklin, but not for the true southerner…..
