There’s a brand new fresh and healthy concept restaurant in Hillsboro Village. Greenery Co. is now open. The restaurant is a new fast-casual concept that will offer fresh and locally sourced salads, bowls, snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.
According to the press release, “Guests can now enjoy the socially distanced dining room or may pick up online orders by parking in the allocated spaces on 21st Avenue South. A parking lot behind Greenery Co. offers 14 spots for its diners – a rarity in the Hillsboro Village neighborhood. The restaurant is also offering free delivery to designated drop sites within Vanderbilt University Medical Center for area medical professionals.”
Greenery Co. is the brainchild of sisters and co-owners Caroline Gaston and Whitney Abblitt. The affordable restaurant will open at 1705 21st Avenue S, where Provence Breads & Café used to be.
“Whitney and I both spent many hours in Provence when we were students at Vanderbilt, whether we were studying, spending time with friends, or grabbing a bite between classes,” Gaston says. “We were heartbroken when the owners decided to close the doors, and consider ourselves incredibly lucky to be in a position to fill that space with something that can offer the neighborhood fresh and healthy food and a warm, inviting experience — all while paying homage to the very café we loved so much as students.”
The sisters spent time in larger cities and they found that Nashville was lacking in healthy, fast fare. Together, they decided to bring that idea to Music City. Barclay Stratton is the Austin-based chef that will consult on the menu for the restaurant. He’s no stranger to the restaurant scene here in Nashville. At one time, he was the Chef de Cuisine of Merchants downtown.
