Located in 12 South only a few yards away from Sevier Park is a restaurant full of flavor and character. Epice, a Lebanese family owned and operated eatery, is worth the visit. The space has a simple and modern design with concrete walls, marble tables and bars, rustic wood, and natural lighting. You can opt to sit inside or outside on the covered porch.
The menu, although small, can feel a little overwhelming with names of dishes and spices you may not be familiar with. However, the staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and happy to offer guidance. Epice serves authentic Lebanese dishes such as shawarma, tawook, and mujadara, with gluten free and vegan options. The hummus is addictive, the cilantro roasted potatoes make your mouth water, and the entrees smell and taste amazing. The restaurant serves fresh vegetables and meats and is known for its lamb dishes. Appetizers range from $7-$10, and entrees from $10-$20.
Alongside incredible food, they offer a selection of wine and cocktails as well as some delicious desserts such as homemade baklava. Often 12 South restaurants can feel overwhelming and overcrowded. However, this small restaurant is warm, inviting, and affordable. Epice is a gem in Nashville and helps offer a taste of food from another part of the world.
