Located on the ground floor of the Pinnacle at Symphony Place in the heart of downtown Nashville, The Southern takes its guests on a culinary journey where every entrée tells a story.
Featuring a state-of-the-art, shuck-to-order oyster bar, a real wood-fired grill, locally-grown produce, deliciously tender meats and directly-sourced, sustainable seafood, The Southern combines indigenous flavors with exotic ingredients to offer an authentically southern experience with a twist. The Southern’s cuisine brings a southern sensibility to time-honored dishes from around the world. With influences from the Gulf Coast to the Carribean; from Nova Scotia to North Carolina, the menu at The Southern is truly “south of somewhere.”
We invite you to gather with friends in our bustling New Orleans-style oyster circle, take a seat at the bar, tuck out of the way in a high-backed booth or host a party in the Demonbreun Room. We look forward to hosting you at The Southern.
Nestled in Nashville’s first LEED certified high-rise, The Southern takes the green philosophy to heart. The restaurant features locally grown produce when possible, direct-sourced local beef, sustainable seafood, and a wood-fired grill powered by salvaged hickory wood. We aim to employ a sustainability plan that makes sense. Beginning by taking a “small bites” approach, we implement business practices that maximize our output and minimize our imprint. All of our practices are rooted in our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle, including an aggressive recycling policy, bulk buying when possible, high-efficiency appliances, farm-to-table purchasing, earth-friendly cleansers, decreased water usage and biodegradable disposables.
