Team Lunch Review: Josephine
Another month means another team meeting over lunch at a new Nashville restaurant! We talked about some fundraisers and client appreciation events we’d like to do this year. Stay tuned for more on that! This month was Carrie’s to pick and she chose Josephine in 12 South. Here’s what we thought:
MICHELLE (the vegetarian) had the chef prepare a meal for her without meat:
While there is not a plethora of options on the menu for Vegetarians, the chef was happy to whip up something that was to my liking. I was served a grilled vegetable sandwich on fresh, toasted farm bread with a side of house-made chips. It was very flavorful and filling. The atmosphere was very nice and there was a good crowd for lunch. I swear there was an ex-NFL player sitting behind us but I can’t, for the life of me, remember his name. Ask for Gabrielle, she’ll take care of you. Bonus: the white cloth napkins left lint on my black trousers but they were prepared with a lint roller in the Ladies Room – yeah!
CARRIE (the picky one) ordered the cheeseburger with no toppings and fries:
Well I will have to hang my head on this pick. I had heard so many great things about the food here. I ordered the cheeseburger and fries. Easy right!!! I promise I am not that hard to please. First my burger was fresh and the bread was as well. They must put a kicker of a marinade in the meat. I felt it for the rest of the day. Also, they put two slider burgers on the sandwich. I would have preferred one large patty. I ordered the fries. I should have stuck with the chips. They looked delicious. My fries were over seasoned and cold. The service was good and I liked the interior touches.
KAT (the omnivore) ordered the lump crab salad:
I normally wouldn’t risk ordering a lump crab anything. So often, a restaurant’s definition of “lump” is my definition of “a few shreds.” But the arugula and Meyer lemon vinaigrette were tempting, so I took the risk. The amount of crab meat on this salad was insane. It was truly a plate full of crab with some arugula and radishes as garnish. On top of delicious food, the interior of this restaurant is beautiful. It’s super modern and masculine, but still cozy. I absolutely loved it, and even took my parents back when they were in town this past weekend!
So far, Kat didn’t love her pick in January and Carrie didn’t love hers in February. Can Michelle break the streak with next month’s lunch? Where should she choose to go?
