The 12South location in Nashville will be the first for Tennessee. No opening date has been released, however it is expected to open sometime in 2013.
More recently announced is the opening of another new restaurant in 2013, to be called Josephine. Josephine is being opened by Miranda Whitcomb Pontes, who opened and owns the very successful 12South restaurant Burger Up (which also has a second location located in the Cool Springs area of Franklin). Josephine is expected to open in the fall of 2013 and will be located at 2316 12th Ave. Sl., between Linden and Elmwood Avenues. The restaurant will offer a selection of 60 wines and according to its newly opened twitter account, is said to be explained, in a word, as “unfussy.”
