from Eater Nashville

Located at 438 Houston Street in the Houston Station building, the casual spot, first announced in September of 2014, was originally called Hemingway’s Arcade, with the moniker a reference to the literary titan. At that time, Hemingway’s owner Chris Weber said he chose that name because it “allows us to play a lot with the menu[.] [Hemingway] was very well-versed and well-traveled. We don’t have to stick to one cuisine.”
