The Tennessean

April 23, 2024

Another Music City dining destination has racked up yet another accolade.

Enjoytravel.com, a site which compares travel products worldwide, listed the best food halls in the country. The included food halls reach almost every corner of the United States. From the sunny beaches of Florida, to the historic cobblestone streets of Pennsylvania, these food halls have it all.

But only one came out on top.

Nashville’s Assembly Food Hall was recognized as the best food hall nationwide. Enjoytravel.com called Assembly the “perfect place to refuel in between country music bars and museums,” and recommended visiting Skydeck on Broadway. Assembly opened in the spring of 2021 and since then, it’s attracted both tourists and locals alike for its extensive culinary options.

Assembly boasts an impressive list of dining options for hungry diners to choose from — over 30 to be exact. In the mood for pizza? Tacos? Barbeque? Hot chicken? Assembly’s got it. Or what about something sweeter like ice-cream, cookie dough, or cotton candy? They’ve got that too. Or perhaps you just want to unwind with a refreshing cocktail, don’t worry, there’s plenty of bars at your disposal.

If you don’t know where to start, Tennessean foodies Mackensy Lunsford and Brad Schmitt ranked the best bites Assembly has to offer. In 2023, the pair named Dock Local, Chilango Tacos and Poke Nash as their top spots.
