Velvet Taco has announced plans for a restaurant opening in East Nashville, Tennessee for March 2023. Originally Dallas’ pioneering taco restaurant, Velvet Taco brings its eclectic, chef-driven menu to its third location in Nashville. The newest Nashville restaurant will be located at 301 Gallatin Ave. East Nashville, Tennessee 37206 and led by General Manager Meagan Ramel and Director of Operations, Aimee Cecil.
