The Food Biz Article: The Southern, a Tuck-Hinton Project

The Nashville Post published an article April 1, 2012 entitled The Food Biz:  Southern Strategy, written by Dana Kopp Franklin.  This article tells about the exciting new restaurant, The Southern Steak & Oyster, which will be opening Monday, April 23, 2012 to the public, in the base of the Pinnacle tower.

Tuck-Hinton Architects proudly designed this highly anticipated new restaurant.  Josh Hughes and Seab Tuck were project managers on this project.  The Southern Steak & Oyster is created by Tom Morales, founder of the famous Loveless Café, located southwest of Nashville, the unique Sapphire in Franklin, and Tomkats Catering, which has catered on sets for prestigious film crews on movies such as Young Guns and The Help.

“It’s culinary meets comfort,” Morales said. “We want to be accessible to everyone.”

The motto & décor for the new restaurant is “south of somewhere”, giving this stylish downtown location a very laid-back vibe.  There’s an oyster bar, drinking bar, dining area, outdoor patio, and a private dining room available upon request.  The food is fantastic, the menu is packed full of variety and flavor, using locally grown products when available.   It’s in a great location for fans of Music City, coming downtown for a hockey game, concert, or the honky-tonks.  And, if you’re dining at The Southern, they will give you two hours free parking in the garage, and if you decide to stay downtown longer, it’s a $5 fee.
