Contain your rage, NoMo haters. I bring you good tidings of great bacon-wrapped dates joy. Butcher & Bee's new Morrison Drive location opens today at 4 p.m. The restaurant will be open for dinner on Wed., Thurs., Sat., and Sun. and will begin lunch service in June.

Originally designed to be a restaurant called The Workshop, owner Michael Shemtov changed his plans shortly after launching a failed Kickstarter campaign to fund the artists designing many of the elements in the new 1085 Morrison Drive location as well as at his new Butcher & Bee Nashville location — things like a hand-made stereo system at B&B Nashville designed by Hazelwood Laboratories and a special installation for The Workshop from Charleston artist Becca Barnet of Sisal & Tow. The new Butcher & Bee (née The Workshop) managed to include Barnet's installation — a giant B&B logo made with nails.

The new B&B will will seat 60 inside with 30 additional seats outside. And unlike it's BYOB predecessor, the new location will serve alcohol. Here's a look at the menu

Located next to Edmund's Oast, B&B 2.0 joins a handful of new spots opening in the neighborhood. Home Team BBQ is now in it's second month of business, the second edition of goat.sheep.cow. is underway, and construction crews are still furiously working to finish Lewis Barbecue — we've been told the opening is six weeks away. 

Then there's the Flagship 3 business incubator at 995 Morrison Drive. It may also have a cafe and coffee shop. Meanwhile, the latest BAR agenda reveals a proposed huge mixed-use development for Brigade Street. With all this construction, it's only a matter of time before North Morrison becomes the new Upper King.

Having a few friends over today to test out some dishes. Not open yet, but very soon... #progress
