Romano’s Macaroni Grill- Opry Mills Mall, Nashville TN (2012)

This location was flooded in May of 2010 during the area wide floods that hit Nashville on May 10. The water was 9 feet above floor level at the Macaroni Grill. The Mall was shut down and remodeled and reopened in March of 2012.

The Macaroni Grill chose to stay in its original location and demolition and construction on the re-build started on January 4, 2012. The interior of the store as well as the exterior were completely gutted and re-built with the exception of some of the Patio elements. The restaurant has both an exterior storefront with entrance as well as an interior Mall Concourse storefront with entrance. The entire floor plan, exterior and interior mall concourse elevations were re-designed. Kitchen, Restrooms, and Bar locations were moved in opposite locations that they were in originally.
