Josephine is located in the 12th South neighborhood district of Nashville, TN. The vibe and decor in Josephine is just what the weekend calls for in Nashville. The warmth and richness of the chosen color palate exude comfort, which goes perfectly with the food. It’s like you’re in a cozy, chic cave that’s filled with amazing food and customer service.
This was my first time dining at Josephine; my hubby decided to bring me here for date night because he knows how much I love food, and what a restaurant snob I am. I must give the hubby credit because he picked a winner with Josephine. We starting out with a great bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon which has rich flavors of plum, black cherry, with a hint of cedar and friendly tannins.
Now let’s talk about the dining experience; We both started out with the Bibb Salad; which had bacon, croutons and radishes in a herb buttermilk dressing. If the rest of our dinner was going to taste as delish as the Bibb Salad did; I knew we were in for a wonderful treat!
As the hubby and I reviewed the menu trying to decide what looked best, the couple beside us had this amazing looking dish; which I thought was beef stew, but it was so much more than beef stew. The hubby and I both decided on Beef Cheeks. Lawwwwwd, the beef was so tender that it was just falling apart. If you’re a pot roast person, GET THE BEEF CHEEKS!!! It’s a very well done, classic and comforting dish. The hubby and I were kicking each other under the table asking, “Do you taste this?” OMG!!
Overall the service was great, along with the atmosphere that was very nice and modern. Our bill was a little over $100.00, which was expected. My only complaint was I wanted more food. I will definitely return and try a different dish and drinks. The only other thing I would say is to be prepared for very strong flavors.
If you are in the Nashville area; Josephine should be on your radar!!
