Just got word that Elliston Place will close this weekend. Sounds like it's a landlord problem. I loved the place and hope someone will step in to save it.
 
Here's the article from the Nashville Scene.

When I was a law student at Vanderbilt, I went to the Elliston Place Soda Shop often. Great fried chicken at Saturday lunch and wonderful coconut cream pie.
 
I remember it fondly, and will be sorry if it closes down.
 
The linked article mentions Candyland -- which was also wonderful, and served a marvelous bittersweet chocolat sundae -- and is also gone.  Sigh.

I hope someone can save Elliston.  My personal favorite Roadfood establishment.  Not counting HoJo's.  Is nothing sacred?

Every time I like a restaurant, something happens to it.
I've been here LOTS of times over the last 20 years.  Too bad.

We used to go to Nashville every couple of years for the Florida-Vanderbilt football game. We never made to this place for one reason or another though we walked by several times. Goes to show you, never assume a place like this will be there next time.

Louis you, of all people, should know that nothing lasts forever.  However, hope springs eternal! I quit my job of the past many years and insisted that my new  prospective employer interview me tomorrow at Elliston Place.  Come on down!
