Big things keep happening in that commercial center over on Porter Road in East Nashville. The latest addition that’s been getting a lot of great buzz is Boone and Sons Neighborhood Market
. It’s a combination specialty grocer — featuring a lot of great local products — and takeout spot with dishes prepared by chefs in house. It’s a sister operation of Wild and Local
(the popular purveyor of high-quality meats and seafood) and features many of the same products as well as other fresh and healthy foods.
The team's mission to provide the east side with fresh and affordable options extends to hosting both a new farmers market each Monday from 4 to 7 p.m., and a series of pop-up restaurants in partnership with other folks who share the same culinary goals.
The first of these pop-up restaurants starts this Friday with Deli House, a Chicago-style deli set up by Caroline and Tony Galzin of Sycamore Nashville. They’re ex-pat Chicagoans who wanted to bring some of their favorites to Nashville.
Deli House will operate 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Friday inside Boone and Sons and will feature sandwiches and lunch items, including an Italian beef with house-made giardiniera, scratch-made focaccia, and a Bear Creek Farm cold-cuts sandwich with house-made capicola, prosciutto cotto and salami. There will be some vegetarian-friendly items available as well. For those of you who can’t make it over there on Fridays, look for Saturday hours to be added soon.
