The owner of Gulch barbecue joint Peg Leg Porker has announced his future restaurant in The Nations will be called Bringle’s Smoking Oasis, with a September opening eyed.

The address is 4901 Centennial Blvd.

Nashville Business Journal reports Carey Bringle (pictured) will offer meat by the pound and a “shared platter” approach.

Unlike Peg Leg Porker, Bringle’s Smoking Oasis will offer Texas-style barbecue (smoked beef, ribs, brisket, chicken and turkey) and fried chicken  (one day a week), NBJ reports.

The finalization of the name and offering of menu elements follow Bringle’s having paid $1.1 million for The Nations property (home to two buildings) in November 2019 (read here).

The triangular property, last home to vehicle service shop and garage U.S. Autocraft, is located on the northern fringe of the fast-changing West Nashville district and near the key intersection of 51st Avenue North and Centennial.

Bringle opened Peg Leg Porker in The Gulch in 2013, with the BBQ and craft beer eatery having since garnered significant praise from customers and culinary aficionados alike. The Bringle family also owns the property from which that restaurant operates at 903 Gleaves St., having paid $500,000 for it in late 2012, Metro records show.

Phoenix restaurateur to open two businesses at Fifth + Broadway

Phoenix-based restaurateur Sam Fox is planning for Fifth + Broadway two businesses: Blanco Cocina + Cantina and The Twelve Thirty Club.

According to a release, Blanco Cocina + Cantina is a “modern Mexican restaurant” from Sam Fox Restaurants. It is slated to open in the fall.

Likewise, and as Nashville Business Journal reports, The Twelve Thirty Club will join Blanco Cocina + Cantina in the space previously planned for Swedish fashion retailer H&M. The space will include access to the roof (for outdoor dining) of the future Apple Store to be located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Fifth Avenue North and Broadway. No details have been disclosed regarding The Twelve Thirty Club.

Fifth + Broadway will offer Assembly Food Hall, to feature various restaurants. In addition, its multiple spaces will also offer restaurants and bars.

In early February, Thai Esane, Steam Boys, Smokin Chikin and The Liege Waffle Co. were announced for what is being billed as a “European-style food hall. Assembly Food Hall will span 100,000 square feet via multiple levels and will offer more than 20 local restaurants and bars, a rooftop event space and a music venue.

Other restaurants to operate at Fifth + Broadway include Hattie B’s, Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria, Shake Shack, Eddie V’s, Prince’s Hot Chicken, Desano Pizzeria and Edley’s BBQ.

Fifth + Broadway will offer a 34-story apartment tower called The Place, a 24-story office building (to be anchored by AllianceBernstein) and the National Museum of African American Music.
