12 south’s restauranteur miranda whitcomb pontes who created both frothy monkey coffeehouse and burger up on the strip, launches her latest effort, josephine, this week as well.   with chef andy little at the helm, the restaurant carries a true farm-to-table philosophy, working with local farms like triple l ranch out of franklin where the cattle are raised on green pastures without any growth hormones or antibiotics.   they hope to have their own garden to draw from as well in the spring.

the restaurant, located in the new 12 south flats building, will serve dinner beginning friday, december 6 and brunch on saturday and sunday beginning december 21st. | 2316 12th avenue south 615.292.7766

as a tip of the hat to the community, the two large tables near the patio were fashioned from bowling lanes from the former melrose lanes which was demolished in the mid 2000s.
