Pecan Square Café
Pecan Square Cafe is the latest restaurant from the people behind spots like Sammie’s, Perla’s, Lamberts, Pool Burger, and Clark’s Oyster Bar (it’s actually right behind Clark’s in Clarksville). Inspired by California restaurants like Zuni Cafe, Pecan Square Cafe has a rustic, simple, and seasonally-driven menu, with dishes like handmade pastas, wood-fired pizzas, and a whole roasted chicken for two. As one might expect, the attention to detail and design is high, the space is airy and light-filled, and it’s nearly booked out a month in advance (although they do reserve tables for walk-ins).
