The Green Pheasant, a new Japanese restaurant from Seed Hospitality (Patrick Burke and co-chefs Jess Benefield and Trey Burnette), officially opened in SoBro across from Ascend Amphitheater on Thursday, November 1, 2018. After seeing continued success from their first concept, Two Ten Jack, the team decided it was time for another approachable izakaya-style restaurant with more refined dishes and techniques. Nashville Guru got a look inside the new space.
The 184-seat restaurant incorporates the works of many local artisans, including New Hat’s eye-catching origami art installation hanging overhead. There’s a central bar with rooted barstools, two group-size booths, a private dining room, and an upper dining space. Enjoy the plush red velvet lounge area while you wait.

The Green Pheasant is located across from Ascend Amphitheater at 215 1st Avenue South. Self-parking and valet is available in the 222 building garage.
Guests can expect a unique combination of local and Southern flavors with traditional Asian ingredients from Japan, like fish, artisanal soy, fresh seaweeds, and decades-old miso. The seasonally-inspired menu includes options like Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake made with potato, smoked ham, bacon, and scallops), Mazemen noodles (with spicy crab, garlic butter, chile threads), and A5 Miyazaki (grilled rib-eye cap from Japan). The bar program includes a diverse sake line-up, sake cocktails on tap, Chu Highs (shochu highballs), wine, and beer. See the menu.
For chef-driven Japanese cuisine from a successful team, give The Green Pheasant a try.
