Vegan Soul Food Spot to Open in Nashville

A Nashville couple plans to open a new sit-down restaurant with the aim of making good vegan food more accessible to all.

Vegan soul food eatery The Southern V will open this spring in Nashville, TN. The restaurant—which was a brightly painted shack of the same name in its previous iteration—is run by husband-and-wife team Clifton and Tiffany Hancock. “When we came up with the concept it was something we ourselves struggled with: finding comfort food that fit into our lifestyle," Clifton Hancock told local media outlet Nashville Business Journal. "We’ve kind of served as a transition for those that aren’t vegan and are looking to explore veganism … we are vegan, [but] we eat more than grass.” While the menu at the couple’s brick-and-mortar has yet to be revealed, Clifton Hancock said Southern V’s dishes aim to cater to a “common-person vegan” thanks to hot (or not) fried chik’n, biscuits and gravy, barbecued ribs, classic sides such as macaroni and cheese, and a selection of baked goods.
