The team behind Watermark restaurant in The Gulch will expand its restaurant reach toward Midtown with the opening of miro district food and drink in The Adelicia residential high-rise. Slated to open in May 2008, miro district will offer Italian-inspired cuisine with a seasonal menu of shared snacks, house-cured meats and artisan cheeses, handmade pastas and main courses.
Nathan Lindley, the general manager of Watermark, along with executive chef Dean Robb—both alumni of Frank Stitt’s Bottega Café & Restaurant in Birmingham, Ala.—will lead the restaurant, which is the second such venture of owner Jerry Brown’s Hospitality Development Group.
The restaurant takes its name from the 18th century moniker for Nashville and surrounding area. In his novel In the Miro District, author Peter Taylor depicts life in Nashville’s Acklen Park neighborhood (where the Adelicia is located) as a “gentler world…known romantically as the Miro District.”
Located at 906 20th Ave. S., miro district will serve lunch and dinner, with lighter fare available throughout the day and late evening.
