Beginning on Monday, Jan. 20, Nashville restaurant The Row will begin offering breakfast options Monday through Friday (brunch is already offered on Saturdays and Sundays) from 6:30 a.m. until 11 a.m.
“When it comes to breakfast in Midtown, there just aren’t many options,” says founder Kelly Black. “We wanted a menu that celebrates southern favorites like steak & eggs & fried chicken & biscuits. We also wanted to add healthier options like free range eggs, steel cut oatmeal, multigrain pancakes & parfait to give fresh choices on kick starting your day. Who said southern couldn’t be healthy?”
