The gourmet pizzeria and rooftop bar, Fire & Vine, that's being built on 1st St across from Red Silo is advertising for workers and is saying they plan on opening in "a few weeks." They have a webpage but not much of anything has been posted yet. I can't wait to check out their menu. I predict this will become one of the more popular gathering places in Cookeville, certainly in downtown Cookeville. I think there will be an enormous amount of synergy created in that neighborhood with Fire & Ice, Red Silo, Father Tom's, 37 Cedar, World Foods, India Palace, Nowhere Bar & Grill, Pho Kitchen, and I'm sure I'm forgetting others located just in that block.

I posted this yesterday but asked for it to be deleted and reposted today to add more pictures and to replace Facebook links with regular websites when possible. I know not everyone uses Facebook.

The downtown bookstore formerly known as Plenty on Spring has moved into a larger location a block away on Broad in the historic West Side. Now just called Plenty Bookshop, it contributes greatly to that neighborhood's vitality. It's located between Glass Tangerine and Jamie's bakery and cafe and across the street from Harper's Rare Books, Soul Craft Coffee, Crawdaddy's, and the future Back Room Bistro which is going to reopen soon as a more upscale restaurant. The West Side continues to get better and better. And this bookstore is such a gem.

The French Cookie of Cookeville had its grand opening over the weekend, and it was hugely successful. This is going to be a wonderful addition to our community. The owner makes macarons which are delicate little cookies made out of almond meal instead of flour (naturally gluten free). She started selling them from her house a few years ago, then they moved to a larger house with a larger kitchen as business picked up, and finally they opened this brick and mortar location in the historic WestSide area of downtown. They sold out all 3,000 macarons the first day. They also have French tartelettes, right now just lemon and chocolate mousse.

I love that other WestSide businesses and even competitors, such as Ralph's Doughnuts and Jamie's Sweets, have encouraged people to support the French Cookie.

If you haven't seen this from Nashville's Channel 5, be prepared to be awed and moved.

A young man with autism who works at The Exceptional Bean, downtown Cookeville's coffee shop that employs people with disabilities, has a gift for creating dioramas--exceptionally elaborate dioramas. His regular job at The Exceptional Bean is to write "Be Kind" on all their take-out bags, but lately he's created some of these dioramas for various downtown businesses, including The Exceptional Bean. Some of his work will be showcased at next month's First Friday art show July 7 at downtown's Glass Tangerine. Incidentally, he created a diorama of Glass Tangerine after just one visit with details that most regular visitors probably haven't noticed.

Fire & Vine is going to have Chicago deep dish pizza and has been teasing us with some pictures on its Facebook page. Nothing else has been posted on its website other than they hope to open "in a few weeks" (which they've been saying for the last couple of months). But every time I drive by, it's a beehive of activity so hopefully they'll be open soon. The rooftop patio looks like it'll be really popular.

Here's a video on their Facebook page of some of the dishes they'll be serving. Hopefully we'll see a full menu soon.

Vertical Coffee has moved into its new location directly across the street from its original location immediately next door to the Spring Street Studios art gallery. Located in the old 1920s era former Pepsi bottling company building, the space is larger and beautiful, plus it has a large outdoor patio. The other part of that building, I think, will be a Chicago style pizza place. The address is 8 West Spring Street in downtown Cookeville.

Cumberland Mountain Outdoor Sports, which currently has a store on Cookeville's courthouse square, has opened an additional location, this one at 46 West Broad next door to the Glass Tangerine in the historic West Side.

I think many of us are familiar with The Pizza Machine. It's a school bus that is now a gigantic pizza oven (and the pizza is incredible), but the catch is there's no pricing. You pay what you want, even if you don't pay anything. Its owner started in the pizza business at his family pizza place in Springfield, Illinois, and brought his passion for good pizza to Tennessee, originally in Gallatin and now we're lucky to have him in Cookeville.

Anyway, according to his Facebook post today, not only is he hoping to add two more buses, he's bought a building in downtown Cookeville that will be home to their bus(es) and where other food trucks will be welcomed.

The Pizza Machine is currently in the process of trying to expand. We have added another bus into the mix, and we are hoping to have our third bus up and running within the next couple years.

We are also currently working on creating an artistic space for the community. One where we can setup our bus/buses and maybe some other food trucks too. We want to provide a place for people to sit down and enjoy our pizza, while being immersed in an artistic experience.

We have found a spot in Cookeville and we have lots of really big, amazing plans. We believe the community would benefit greatly from a space like this. It would also help us stay up and running in the colder months which are quickly approaching.

The Pizza Machine began as a place of artistic expression; breaking the boundaries for what a restaurant could be. People who went there remember it. We want to try and recreate a new version of what once was here in Cookeville.


The location is two blocks west of where he's usually set up at Red Silo Brewery at the corner of 1st and Hickory, 209 West 1st. It's a 3200 sq ft cinder block warehouse built in 1955 with a large empty yard facing Hickory. It definitely has great potential.

I am very much looking forward to this, and I think this will only enhance that part of downtown Cookeville. There are several luxury condos under construction in that neighborhood, and a recently opened office building on the same street. I can see 1st Street becoming quite the happening place with the Pizza Machine on one end and the WestSide foodie scene on the other end.

Ricky Shelton has something brewing that he has posted small clues for on his Facebook page. A lot of people commenting seem to think it's a food truck park. I wonder if this is related.

West Side Grocery opened this week next to Meg's Bread and across the street from Ralph's Donuts. While not for the bargain shopper, West Side Grocery has a good selection of local produce, meats, even locally made ice cream and other dairy products. It carries mainly organic products and is still in the process of stocking items so they're open to suggestions of what else they should carry.

It was fun to peruse their store this morning, grab some locally made ice cream and local raw honey, then go next door for some fresh croissants and pastries. (But again, it's not for the budget conscious.) They also have an outdoor patio where you can enjoy some of Meg's homemade pizzas, salads and sandwiches with some organic chips and delicious imported sodas from West Side Grocery.
