Let’s kick off the week with some good news, shall we?

Lots of new spots are opening in Huntsville soon, including plenty of new food options. Keep reading for all the latest!


1. Biscuit Belly

Biscuit Belly, founded by Chad and Lauren Coulter, is “born and baked in the South.” Their biscuit recipe was perfected by chef Tavis Rockwell over the course of three months. They’re famous for serving up those biscuits in over-the-top ways, along with sides, breakfast cocktails and creative dishes like Bonuts (biscuit donuts) and Pancake Corndogs.

2. Jim n’ Nicks

This Birmingham-based barbecue restaurant already has a presence in the Huntsville area on University Drive, but they’re about to be barbecuing in Madison, too. We don’t know when they’re planning to open yet, but we do know that it will be located near Jonathan’s Grille in Clift Farm.

3. Ruchi

It’s coming back. (Ruchi / Facebook)

That’s right, Ruchi is coming back. After it closed last year, we weren’t sure if we’d ever be able to enjoy the authentic cuisine and vibrant atmosphere that Ruchi brought to Huntsville. So, we’re pretty excited that they’re making a comeback this year at a new location.

4. Kelly & Buddy’s Dog Park

We love our pets here at Hville Blast, so we’re always up for a new place for our pups to go. Kelly and Buddy’s Dog Park is a new, privately-owned dog park in Huntsville where your dog can spend just a few hours or all day. They have two acres of grassy land located just two miles from Downtown Huntsville for ultimate convenience.


Bacchus Wine + Tapas

We’ll miss this cozy dining room. (Bacchus Wine + Tapas / Facebook)

Bacchus Wine + Tapas was a local option for international cuisine, beautiful charcuterie and an elegant atmosphere (with live piano music!)—so it will certainly be missed in the Huntsville community.
