Nashville Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving Day


With all of the wonderful things that come with Thanksgiving, there are also tradeoffs. You get to see family, but that means you have to prep the house. The day culminates in a great meal, which you have to cook. Time to watch the big game, after you do the dishes.

In fact, we fully support it. Here are some Nashville restaurants who will be opening their doors on Turkey Day.

Torrey Swan
When I moved to Nashville when I was 11, I never knew how deep my roots would run here! I attended Belmont University (Go Bruins!) where I met my husband David. We were married in 2008, and 4 months later, he was off to Iraq for a year. A couple of years after he returned home, we had our first daughter, Madeline, who is a lively redhead that keeps us on our toes! Any and all rumors you've ever heard about the nature of redheads are in fact true. Our second little girl, Violet, was born in July of this year and is the sweetest little addition. Before having children, I worked as a pediatric nurse for 7 years, and last year worked at two Williamson County high schools as a Health Science teacher. I will once again be staying home with the birth of our second daughter. I am new to the world of blogging, but look forward to the experience of getting to share stories, tips and advice with other local moms!
