Led by chef Andy Little, whose distinct and thoughtful cuisine has earned him two James Beard semifinalist nominations since its 2013 opening, Josephine is an American restaurant located in the vibrant 12 South neighborhood of Nashville where the Pennsylvania Dutch roots of Little’s upbringing meet Southern hospitality. A small, carefully selected list of wines chosen by General Manager and Sommelier Karen Van Guilder Little and expertly crafted signature cocktails accompany the restaurant’s dinner and weekend brunch menus. Whether you’re coming in for a special occasion or dropping in for a drink at the bar, Josephine’s dedication to gracious hospitality promises a warm and refined experience for every guest.
