We were just informed that the new restaurant replacing Mirror on 12th South is to be named:  the Blind Pig.  According to rumor, it’ll be a high-end, gastopub-by BBQ joint, opening in mid-June, which is to say soon.   As we discussed this at the Taproom, we realized an unusual Nashville pattern:  the penchant for food establishments to name themselves after an animal, qualified by an adjective:

-Blind Pig

-Smiling Elephant

-Silly Goose

-Frothy Monkey

-Flying Horse

-Red Pony

-The Wild Cow (thanks to Nancy Vinneau for this one)

    Great tip guys! The idea of high end barbecue worries me some…hopefully that means that they will be trying new and creative things with barbecue and not just giving it a fancy surrounding and fancy prices.

  2. and, for the list: not to forget the Wild Cow…
