Restaurateurs Chris Chwirut and Kristian Morgan announced the debut of Pork Belly Farmhouse, their new, upscale restaurant in historic downtown Nolensville.
The 150-seat restaurant at 7263 Nolensville Road specializes in contemporary southern cuisine, with Morgan serving as Executive Chef.
“Chris and I wanted to create the same level of original, quality dining you’d expect in downtown Nashville, and put it in our own backyard,” Morgan said in the announcement.
According to their announcement, they have recruited team members and leadership with experience from such well-known establishments as Table 3, Husk and TomKats Hospitality.
Pork Belly Farmhouse marks the duo’s second business in the area, as their original concept, Pork Belly Café, a fast-casual sandwich shop, opened in nearby Lenox Village in fall 2015. Construction is already underway on a third Pork Belly-themed concept for a neighborhood bar in the Carothers Farms development off Burkitt Road just northeast of Nolensville in Davidson County. The bar and eatery is scheduled to open in mid-2019.
“We knew there was high demand for an elevated, full-service dining experience in Nolensville, and we’re thrilled to provide just that,” Chwirut said. “From craft cocktails and gluten-free/healthy options to traditional favorites like steak and seafood, along with Pastry Chef Megan Alexander’s creative desserts, we offer a wide culinary variety for the whole family.”
Pork Belly Farmhouse is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
