DESCRIPTION
High-profile restaurateur Tom Morales, whose Nashville-based TomKats Catering has been the go-to choice for movie locations for many years, has another box-office hit on his hands with downtown's The Southern Steak & Oyster. Located on the ground floor of The Pinnacle Building across from the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and diagonally from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, The Southern manages to be country and citified at the same time, not unlike a lot of the hit tunes cut in Music City recording studios. Reclaimed rustic doors rest against the walls, while an oversized oblong bar and expansive bar-area seating and patio set the stage for conversation and good food. The menu features Southern-style takes on dishes familiar to diners at Morales-led restaurants such as Franklin's Saffire: Pan-Fried Cornmeal-Crusted Catfish, Chicken Fried Chicken, Mac and Three Cheeses, Fish N' Grits and gnaw-worthy Double-Cut Smoked Pork Chop and South of Somewhere T-Bone. Added bonus: two hours of free parking in The Pinnacle.
"Serving meals daily, around-the-clock, The Southern strives to strike a deft balance: What will appeal to downtown residents and workers, natives and tourists, symphony goers, Hall of Fame visitors, singles, groups and families? That's a broad swathe that [owner Tom] Morales covers rather well with his Southerly menus, served in a posh yet comfortable place."
- Nancy Vienneau, for The Tennessean, June 24, 2012
