Fifth + Broadway lands wine-focused restaurant

Officials with Texas-based wine-focused restaurant Sixty Vines announced Tuesday they are planning a May opening in downtown's Assembly Food Hall at Fifth + Broadway.

This will be the first Sixty Vines in Tennessee. Parent company FB Society operates restaurants in Winter Park, Florida, and in Texas cities Plano, Dallas and Houston, according to a release. Terms of its lease and the cost to get operational are not being disclosed.

From its 16,000-square-foot third-floor level space at Fifth + Broadway (at 500 Broadway), Sixty Vines will offer private dining, a greenhouse patio, a full bar and rooftop views overlooking the Ryman Auditorium and Lower Broadway. Sixty Vines will offer more than 60 wines in kegs. Each keg contains about 26 bottles of wine and will be reused to hold approximately 1,500 bottles during its lifespan. According to the release, the process provides a longer shelf life and proper temperature while reducing the restaurant's carbon footprint. For example, Sixty Vines estimates it will save more than 50,000 bottles and corks from landfills in its first year of operation in Nashville.

Sixty Vines' menu focuses on pizzas, pastas, seasonal proteins and cheese boards, and many of the food offerings will be sourced locally. Cocktails and local beers on tap will also be included.

“Bringing Sixty Vines to Nashville is incredibly exciting,” Jeff Carcara, Sixty Vines' CEO, said in the release. “It’s a city full of adventure and discovery. We’re confident we’ll offer something truly unique for both locals and visitors by bringing wine country to Broadway.”

Dallas-based The Food Hall Co. operates Assembly Food Hall at the mixed-use Fifth + Broadway, which is owned by New York-based Brookfield Properties.

“We believe the inclusion of Sixty-Vines’ full-service dining concept is an important addition to Assembly Food Hall,” Joseph Magliarditi, The Food Hall Co. president and CEO, said in the release. “We have created a fully comprehensive dining and entertainment destination in downtown Nashville that further differentiates our concept from other food halls. This achieves our broader goal of being a community hub in first-class mixed-use projects like Fifth + Broadway.”
