The restaurant formerly known as Country Monkey and The Trap is now quietly open for business as Limelight. The 20,000-square-foot space overlooking eastbound traffic on Woodland Street now serves lunch and dinner and will soon open for happy hour and live music at night.
Owner Kenny Winchell is currently winding up operations at Bar Car in Cummins Station as he ramps up Limelight. (Bar Car will close for good April 1.) Winchell is billing the new project as “Nashville’s ultimate entertainment venue.”
Chef Tommy Strussion, co-owner of year-and-a-half-old Tommy Boy Sausage Co. & Eatery (4811 Trousdale Drive), will man the menu of all-American and Italian-American offerings, including a lunch buffet of Southern favorites.
As always, if you get there before we do, please report back on Bites.
Located at 201 Woodland St., Limelight serves lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and dinner on Saturday.
