Franklin-based chef and restaurateur Frank Pullara is expanding his Culaccino concept to Nashville Yards next year.

Culaccino will be situated at the corner of Commerce and 9th Avenue North on the ground floor of The Emory residential tower, and its close proximity to The Pinnacle makes it a prime spot for dinner and drinks before a concert. Here’s what you can expect when the 6,700-sqft space opens in summer 2025:

  • 20-ft ceilings and a large, covered patio that wraps around the corner of the building
  • Scratch made pasta dishes like the ravioli made with veal shoulder and woodfired pizzas
  • A cocktail menu with seasonal drinks (Try this: Cula Weather made with Franklin Distillery Vodka, Culaccino’s limoncello, honey, and prosecco)

If you want to get acquainted with the menu ahead of time, make a reservation at the Franklin location — 104 E. Main St.
