Hattie B's Expands to Two Locations; Nuvo Burrito Narrows to One



Midtown hot chicken spot Hattie B's is staking out a second location, on Charlotte Pike in West Nashville. Hattie B's, whose popularity sometimes strains the bounds of its Midtown space (and parking lot), is adding its second outpost in the former Krystal property at 5209 Charlotte Pike.

Nuvo Burrito, the locally owned burrito outfit that had been operating on that site, decided to leave and sublet it to Hattie B's, according to Sean Perry, who co-owns Nuvo Burrito with Tom Justice. "We think it will work better for them to have the space," Perry says.

Hattie B's, whose original location is at 112 19th Ave S. and is owned by Nick Bishop Jr. and his dad, Nick Sr., expects to open the new Charlotte restaurant sometime this spring.

Meanwhile, Nuvo Burrito plans to close its original location in Five Points just before Christmas. "The lease is up, and we're opting not to renew," Perry said. Presumably the rent at the high-profile location at 1000 Main St. played a factor. However, those closures are not the end of Nuvo Burrito.

Perry says the team is opting to concentrate its efforts on its most successful location, on Peabody Street in the revitalizing SoBro area of downtown. "We going to cater to downtown residents by extending ours hours in the new year," he says.

Nuvo Burrito on Peabody currently serves lunch only, but Perry says they'll add breakfast burritos in the morning and extend their hours into dinner, as well.

Perry also notes that Nuvo Burrito has already added delivery in the downtown area through Rush Bicycle Messengers, for a $5 fee.

Nuvo Burrito at 1000 Main St. is scheduled to close for good Dec. 23. Nuvo Burrito at 319 Peabody St. remains open and is expected to extend hours in January.
