Noshville Midtown To Close
Noshville Delicatessen will close its Midtown location on Dec. 27. The property where it is located was purchased by a developer who is planning a 25-story mixed-use project. In a letter to employees obtained by The Tennessean, deli owner Tom Loventhal attributed the closing to the rising cost of insurance premiums and meeting government requirements related to the Affordable Care Act. The Noshville restaurants in Green Hills and at the airport will remain open. In related news, the developer is trying to have the lease of J&J’s Market & Cafe, neighbor of Noshville Midtown, declared void.
