Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille

Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille will open its first location in Tennessee at Franklin’s McEwen Northside. The new location will look similar to Perry’s Schaumburg in Illinois (pictured).

Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille will open its first location in Tennessee at Franklin’s McEwen Northside on Thursday, Feb. 18.

“We’ve been waiting for the right moment to introduce Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille to Tennessee and are excited to finally make our way into the greater Nashville area,” said Chris Perry, founder and owner of Perry’s Restaurants. “A city known for its Southern hospitality, Nashville is a perfect fit for Perry’s signature service and dedication to quality.” 

Designed in partnership with renowned restaurant architect Aria Group Architects, Inc., the freestanding, 11,000-square-foot restaurant will seat up to 350 guests at full capacity but will open adhering to social distancing guidelines and upholding the highest cleaning standards. 

Perry’s Cool Springs’ expansive main dining room will provide a view of every angle of the main dining room, including a glance at chef creations in the kitchen and glimpses of Perry’s Bar 79 through the spectacular wine wall. From the vibrant color palette to its exquisite use of glass, lighting and other textures, every detail in the restaurant was deliberately selected to create an inviting ambiance that the local community will appreciate, whether they’re enjoying an intimate dinner, a business meeting, an elegant celebration or Perry’s special Pork Chop Friday Lunch. 

Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille

The Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille famous pork chop.

An unexpected steakhouse specialty, Perry’s famous pork chop is a mouth-watering chop measuring seven fingers high — just as butchers measured back in the day. Sweet, smokey and sizzling, the chop is butchered in-house, rubbed with proprietary seasoning, cured and roasted on a rotisserie with pecan wood for up to six hours. Upon order, the chop is glazed, caramelized and topped with Perry’s Signature Steak Butter, then carved tableside (during dinner service only). 

Perry’s iconic Pork Chop Friday® Lunch features a lunch-cut portion of the chop, whipped potatoes and homemade applesauce for $16 on Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (the only day of the week when Perry’s is open for lunch service). The first Pork Chop Friday will be held on Friday, Feb. 19. The pork chop lunch special is also available to go Wednesdays andFridays from 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m.

For guests who want to bring the Perry’s experience directly to their door, Perry’s famous pork chop is available to ship fully cooked from Perry’s Steakhouse Online Market, arriving frozen with ice packs and includes steak butter and instructions on how to heat. Additional items available from Perry’s Steakhouse Online Market include Perry’s steak knives, Perry’s signature steak butter, Perry’s signature steak seasoning, gift cards and special steak boxes. 

The new location also includes four beautifully appointed private dining rooms ideal for meetings and family celebrations. Guests will revel in the energy at Perry’s Bar 79, named after the year Perry’s was founded, and delight in sipping handcrafted cocktails at a beautiful island bar with glass walls that open to patio dining that seats approximately 46 guests.

More than four decades ago, Perry’s first restaurant opened in Houston in 1979 as a modest meat market called Perry’s Butcher Shop and Deli. In 1986, Bob Perry’s son, Chris, persuaded his father to add dining tables, paving the way for an expansion and inspiring Chris Perry to open Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille in 1993. In addition to Steakhouses in 10 markets throughout the United States, Perry’s Restaurants also includes Perry & Sons Market & Grille and CARVE American Grille.

With Perry’s Private Dining, guests can embrace special moments and milestones with a selection of elegant private dining rooms and specially curated menus that can be tailored to any taste. With new table arrangements for all private dining rooms, Perry’s is ensuring guests’ tastes and toasts are cherished in a safe and convenient space, adhering to social distancing guidelines. A dedicated sales manager is also available to coordinate large to-go orders for virtual conferences and meetings.

Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille, located at 5028 Aspen Grove Dr. in Franklin’s McEwen Northside development, offers dine-in dinner service Monday through Thursday from 4-10 p.m., Friday from 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m., Saturday from 4-10 p.m. and Sunday 4-9 p.m. The full menu will be available for car-side to-go every day from 11 a.m.-close, in addition to to-go special offers.
