The Southern is located on the ground floor of the Pinnacle at Symphony Place building in downtown Nashville. The restaurant features a state-of-the-art, shuck-to-order oyster bar and a wood-fired grill. It’s kitchen serves locally-grown produce and directly-sourced, sustainable seafood. And they do it mighty well! We sat in one of their high back booths and enjoyed an array of dishes that truly satisfied our palettes… and our belly’s!
on my plate: The Southern Wedge salad with crispy fried black eyed peas, bacon lardons and bleu cheese dressing, deviled eggs (and damn good ones!), Dominican Pork – Caribbean spiced braised pork and mango pico atop a crisp sweet potato grit cake, and (their famous) Sapphire Steak Biscuits – two bleu cheese biscuits, grilled beef terderloin and horseradish demi.
FOUR PRONG FORK REVIEW:

– GOOD TO KNOW –
The Southern is located a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the downtown Nashville bars. It is the perfect place to get away from the loud music and enjoy a relaxing meal in a fun atmosphere. Try a little bit of everything, if you can. The flavor cues on the menu vary between dishes which makes the experience that much more enjoyable. Note on the parking… if there is an event at Bridgestone Arena or at the Symphony Center, the three free hours of parking may not be valid so I would confirm that before parking there.
