Nashville's restaurant scene is so hot, our little suburbanite family can't keep up... with our stomachs or our wallets!  But when we hear from other folks about a restaurant that is consistently good, we'll get around to it, sooner or later.  That's what happened when we were looking for a date night out and saw that Josephine in 12South had an open reservation.

We started with the pretzel bread, served with mustard, and crispy pork belly, served with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil.  Both were delicious!  I think the pretzel bread was my favorite; I wanted to take a loaf home!  And I kind of think (don't hate me) that I'm over my craze of ordering all the pork belly all the time.  I think I've been overdoing it, so I may reserve it for special occasions like a meal at Kayne Prime.  

For my main dish, I was a little more adventurous, choosing the beef cheeks dish.  It was like a tender, rich pot roast.  I'd never had beef cheeks before, so it was a great first intro to a different cut of meat.  I'm not sure it's something I'll crave, but I wouldn't hesitate to try another dish with them.  After all, I ate beef heart in Peru and sweetbreads at Union Common.

We were a little torn on dessert; after all, Jeni's is next door and we don't get to have that very often!  But when we saw that they had a special peach cobbler on the menu, which you had to order 30 minutes in advance, I was like "yes, please" and we made the call.  It was the right one too, as we saw out the window that the Jeni's line was absolutely insane.

Not to mention, you can't go wrong when you order what's in season!

The cobbler was more like a mini pie, served with vanilla ice cream to make it a la mode. It was perfect for two people, and the perfect way to enjoy a summer date night.
