The Southern Steak & Oyster opens at Nashville International Airport

By Jane Hobson

The Southern Steak & Oyster’s new full-service restaurant and bar is now open in Concourse D at Nashville International Airport. A favorite among locals and tourists alike, The Southern’s second location brings a new level of dining to the airport, reflecting the trademark hospitality of its owner, legendary restaurateur Tom Morales, and its flagship location.

The Morales family business has contributed to Music City’s transformation over the years, restoring historic local brands and creating new authentic concepts like The Southern, which marks its 10th year with this new location.

“We’re thrilled to welcome The Southern Steak & Oyster to BNA,” said Doug Kreulen, president and CEO of Nashville International Airport. “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 Southern Steak & Oyster is known for premium dry aged steaks and Southern favorites

Operated in partnership with Skyport Hospitality, the 3,589-square-foot restaurant and full bar in the South Terminal features a New Orleans-inspired design with an open kitchen and abundant natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows. It offers the same elevated service and exceptional food as The Southern’s flagship location, with seating for 126 guests.

“We are thrilled to extend The Southern Steak & Oyster’s hospitality to BNA and bring local Nashville flavors to travelers,” said Lauren Morales, COO, TomKats Hospitality. “The team Skyport has assembled is enthusiastic, and we are proud to work alongside them.”

The restaurant’s “South of Somewhere” motto allows for boundless culinary expression. Executive Chef Matt Farley explores cuisines from the Gulf Coast to the Caribbean. Popular menu items include 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 restaurant serves breakfast until 10:30 a.m. and lunch and dinner daily.

“The Southern continues to draw a loyal following to its bustling downtown location, and we are delighted to open a new location at BNA. Our thanks to the Morales family and partners at Skyport for bringing this authentic Nashville dining experience to the airport,” says Matt Jennings, vice president of Fraport Tennessee, developer, and manager of the airport’s concessions program. “With The Southern and recent additions, guests have an exciting array of places to enjoy a taste of Nashville.”
