An old church hall turned restaurant, Hathorne gets its name from owner and chef John Stephenson’s grandmother and brings the comfort of family meals to West Nashville. John’s mission for Hathorne is “love the guests, respect the food” and this is the foundation on which the experience at Hathorne is built. Named among the 50 nominees for Bon Appetit’s best new restaurant in America in 2019, Hathorne is sought out for the seasonal & familiar ingredients prepared in unexpected ways. Their thirst quenching classic & signature cocktails and Southern hospitality at a great value lures guests from all across Music City. Encouraging family-style meals, the dishes at Hathorne are specifically designed to be shared amongst friends and family. To curate each dish on the menu, Stephenson draws inspiration from his travels, living in the South and the ethnic threads within the American culture. From roasted heirloom carrots and crispy goat cheese appetizers to spicy meatballs and grilled whole Branzino entrees, you’ll find that it isn’t easy to choose just one favorite on this menu. Holding true to Southern roots, the team at Hathorne relishes in providing a hospitable environment with exceptional food and friendly faces.

“Enjoyed a fabulous dinner here with a large group. Ordered so many different items, they were all home runs, especially the fried chicken, which was prepared more like a schnitzel. Look forward to going back.” – David F.
