On our last girls visit to Nashville we finally got the chance to stop in at the Southern, which we had been eyeing for quite a while now but just never got the chance to stop. Trust me when I say, it will be one of the first stops on our next visit. We ducked in on a Sunday morning for brunch, and started with mimosas, I'm sucker for anything with blood orange, so I may be biased when I say The Southern's blood orange mimosas was a refreshing take on the quintessential brunch drink, it's a little sweeter, which I personally like for brunch. We debated ordering oysters but decided it was a little too early in the day (not for me personally, but we put it to a vote) but we will be trying them on our next visit.

Now for our meals, I had the My Way, which is pretty much pasta carbonara in breakfast form. It's pasta tossed in brown butter with bacon lardons and goat cheese (sucker for that too) and topped with two sunny side up eggs, oh and pine nuts, it was f**king awesome. I feel like it's the perfect morning meal after a night downtown and totally worth the carbs. Truthfully was I was so in love with my dish I was really paying attention to the others got, but my SIL got a salad (seriously) which was good, but it was still a salad. And someone ordered the S.O.S which is biscuits, gravy and ham. That easy also good, and something I would order myself, which is rare I will admit since biscuits and gravy are not one of my top meals. Hell, the salad was so good I would order it, (it had hearts of palm it, I remember I made highly approving sounds around my mouthful of brown butter linguini and goat cheese when I saw that.) just not for brunch.

I have to say, it was on of the best meals we had that weekend, the service was awesome, it was a very laid back and relaxed atmosphere (perfect for brunch) and we will definitely be back on our next visit in a month or so!

Great place to eat downtown that is a little more refined and high end. Especially great if you love oysters like I do! They also make a great Martini.

One of my favorite places. Oysters and steaks with 3 fingers of Angel's Envy.

I love this place! Everything is good, the prices aren't exorbitant, and it's a great place to watch people. The outdoor patio is a favorite when the heat and humidity are tolerable. I love that they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I know of nowhere else in town where you can pasta for breakfast.

This place is busy, however, the wait is worth it. If you are an oyster buff, they have a menu of oysters from around North America flown in fresh daily. Also, try the Southern favorite: Chicken & Waffles for breakfast. For dinner, the steaks are also very good.

The food and drinks were delicious - however, we had to wait 1.5 hours to be seated without reservations and the bill for 2 people (drinks, appetizers, entrees, etc) was way over $100
I recommend making reservations and filling up on the free biscuits if you're on a budget

Great place to sit at the bar, have a drink and eat a few oysters. They offer several different varieties of oysters. Pricy, but a lot of fun and delicious food.

Try their hot chicken and waffles! They serve it on weekdays before 10:30am and weekends until 1:30 I believe.

Everything we got was great, but if you love brunch and are a fan of chicken and waffles, you must go here! There's something about their syrup....perfect! And if you're there during good weather, take advantage of the great patio in the middle of downtown Nashville.
