Fin & Pearl is Nashville’s first fresh seafood restaurant committed to sustainable and traceable sourcing, Earth-friendly operations, and providing an approachable dining experience served with Southern hospitality. Our mission is to create a sustainable, Earth-friendly seafood restaurant in both our practices and buying strategies, while communicating with our customers honestly and with 100% transparency. We hope to inspire others to embrace these simple tenets through our culinary efforts and a kind, hospitable attitude.
As the seafood industry has become increasingly difficult to regulate, Fin & Pearl is committed to exclusively working with purveyors that provide the highest quality fish caught by small, privately owned boats devoted to the sustainability of their catch. In addition to sourcing high quality seafood, Fin & Pearl will source from local Nashville farms whenever possible.
The Ocean Bar at Fin & Pearl features an expanded raw bar menu, including an assortment of several kinds of oysters in hot and cold preparations, riffs on the classic shrimp cocktail, fresh poke, a selection of caviar with traditional garnishes, and platters offering a sampling of the Ocean Bar menu.
The bar at Fin & Pearl features a carefully curated menu of wines, beers and cocktails. The wine list offers approachable selections for the novice drinker, as well as gems that will tempt the most knowledgeable oenophiles, highlighting both classic and lesser known varietals that complement the dishes. The beer menu showcases the wide variety of craft beers that Nashville has to offer, a cross section of the new and established breweries. The cocktail menu was created to be accessible, yet based in craft with an emphasis on rum to fit the restaurant’s sea-inspired vibe.
Fin & Pearl can accommodate 144 guests in the main dining room seated and 20 guests at the bar, as well as 40 guests on the patio terrace. Additionally, the restaurant features private dining for up to 50 guests in The Chart Room with white washed wood paneling, live edged teak counters, and two salvaged brass chandeliers.
