Josephine is a contemporary restaurant featuring refined American farmhouse cuisine located in the vibrant, 12 South neighborhood of Nashville, TN. Opened in 2013 and built on a piece of land previously inhabited by a treasured neighborhood wine bar, the goal was to not replace what once was, but to give something to the neighborhood that would be equally received as a jewel– an elegant hang without fuss.
The restaurant focuses on simple, classically composed recipes accompanied by a small but carefully selected wine list in a soft industrial space that emphasizes a sense of home. Chef Andrew Little’s expertise and dedication to cooking—not just by the seasons, but by the day— has garnered him praise for the food he serves and the innovative and inspired way in which it is presented. Perfect for everyday dining or special occasions, Josephine is an experience that carries an air of ease; a great time takes care of itself.
Reservations are accepted, but there are communal tables and a full bar always open for walk-in guests on a first-come, first-served basis.
