Located in the center of the burgeoning 12 South neighborhood, the Fish Pit and Southern Cantina has arguably some of the best seafood, freshly shucked oysters and cured, smoked and grilled meats to be found in Music City. The eclectic wine and spirits list doesn’t disappoint either, boasting a cutting edge bar and inventive craft cocktails that are something to write home about.
If the menu doesn’t sell you, the atmosphere will. The 165-seat restaurant, reconstructed from a former car wash building, is now a remarkably modernized structure, complete with garage doors to let in the outside throughout.Visit the oyster bar on any given night and make a new friend over a glass of wine, or stroll into the herb garden strung with lights and hang out by the fire. Whatever you fancy, be it a $6 taco and a glass of Malbec at the bar or the finest grade of beef you can buy, rest assured you can find it at Urban Grub.
