Popular Nashville eatery Southern Steak & Oyster has opened a new restaurant and bar in Concourse D at Nashville International Airport (BNA), according to airport developer Fraport USA.
Operated in partnership with Skyport Hospitality, the 3,589 square foot location in the South Terminal features a New Orleans-inspired design with an open kitchen, abundant natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows, and seating for 126 guests.
“We’re thrilled to welcome The Southern Steak & Oyster to BNA,” said Doug Kreulen, BNA president and CEO. “The Southern has become a staple restaurant in the Nashville food scene, and we’re extremely proud to have them at the airport as part of our new reimagined concessions program, where we continue to bring the flavor of downtown Nashville right here in the airport.”
The restaurant’s “South of Somewhere” motto allows for boundless culinary expression. The menu features items such as Breaux Bros Gumbo with andouille and crawfish, Fish ‘N Grits with spicy tasso ham vinaigrette, Orleans Parish style BBQ Shrimp, Dry Aged Strip Steak and The Belle Filet.
“The Southern continues to draw a loyal following to its bustling downtown location, and we are delighted to open a new location at BNA,” says Matt Jennings, vice president of Fraport Tennessee. “With The Southern and recent additions, guests have an exciting array of places to enjoy a taste of Nashville.”
