The Gas Lantern Opens Tomorrow!

If you live in Clarksville or ever pass through, or even live near there, an amazing Italian fine dining is opening tomorrow in historic downtown. The Gas Lantern's grand opening is this Friday. Good friends of mine, Jonathan and Rachel Vinson are the visionaries and owners of this new hot spot. I had the privilege this weekend of sampling many of their dishes. OH Man! It is good stuff! My favorites were the shrimp and artichoke bisque, the crab cakes, and the Pollo Rosa. I actually loved everything I tasted!

formerly only open for lunch and known as the Rose Garden, The Gas Lantern is open for dinner and has taken on a whole new vibe that patrons will absolutely love. From specialty coffees to live music, The Gas Lantern might soon be the most desirable eatery in Clarksville.

To see pictures, scan their menus or read about the history of the location check out their website here. Make your reservations today! You will not be disappointed.

It sounds really good. Hopefully the name of the restaurant won't have any kind of double meanings :-)

Just got back from eating at The Gas Lantern. Went with a small group from work. Very good and great atmosphere! I had the Pollo Rosa which was very good. Look forward to going back so I can try other things on the menu!
Congratulations Jonathan and Rachel!
