New Orleans-based wife and husband Jennifer and Erich Weishaupt are planning to open later this year all-day-breakfast restaurant Ruby Sunshine in the Hillsboro Village neighborhood in Nashville.

The announcement, made in a release Monday, follows a similar November 2018 announcement that parent company Ruby Slipper Restaurant Group was planning to open a Ruby Sunshine this year in downtown Franklin’s 231 Public Square building. That eatery began operations in March.

This will be the fourth Ruby Sunshine location, joining those located in Knoxville, Birmingham and, as noted, Franklin. More are slated to open through 2020, according to the release.

The new location, at 1800 21st Avenue South, will accommodate about 174 guests.

Ruby Sunshine will be open seven days a week. The menu will feature “New Orleans twists on Southern breakfast staples” like bananas foster pain perdu, catfish and grits, white chocolate bread pudding pancakes, benedicts and morning cocktails (mimosas, brandy milk punch and Bloody Marys). Ruby Sunshine incorporates local ingredients whenever possible and recently partnered with Nashville-based Goo Goo Cluster to create a specialty pancake for the Franklin location.

The days and hours of operation will be Mondays through Fridays (7 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and Saturdays and Sundays (7 a.m. to 3 p.m.)

Ruby Slipper Restaurant Group also operates 10 Ruby Slipper Café locations across the Mississippi Gulf Region.
