The Stock-Yard Restaurant, once an institution in the Nashville dining scene, closed for business Monday.
"We would like to thank everyone who has ever joined us over the years and wish you the best in all of your future endeavors," according to a voicemail recording that answers the restaurant phone. "The Stock-Yard Restaurant will forever be rooted deep in the history of Nashville. Thank you, and God bless."
The closing ends a 36-year run for The Stock-Yard at 901 Second Ave. N. It comes after a pair of Charlotte, N.C.-based developers just completed buying the building that is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places and a parking lot across Stock-Yard Boulevard.
Spectrum Residential and Llewellyn Development LLC paid $8.3 million for that 3.3 acres. The developers also have under contract an adjacent roughly half-acre site that includes the former Chromemasters car repair shop at 826 Third Ave. N. and concept plan approval from the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency for a roughly 310-unit, up to six-story apartment community.Read the Full Article
