Just about every time I visit Opry Mills in Nashville, I use raiding the H&M and Banana Republic outlets as an excuse to have lunch or dinner at Romano's Macaroni Grill.  However, I just saw a bit of news that may alter those plans in the very near future.  Paula Deen has announced that she's bringing Paula Deen's Family Kitchen to the mall!

NewsChannel5 in Nashville broke the news a couple of days ago.  The Nashville location will be Paula Deen's second in Tennessee, joining the restaurant she has in Pigeon Forge.

Paula Deen's Family Kitchen will be located at 701 Opry Mills Drive and, of course, features some of Paula's most famous Southern-style recipes.  According to various reports, the Nashville location is expected to open in 2020.
