Down at the south end of 12 South, Mirror's menu is changing with the neighborhood. Now eight years established and a full-fledged neighborhood eatery, Mirror is migrating from tapas and small plates to reinvented comfort food, says chef Michael DeGregory.
Hard day at work? Terrible traffic? How about an open-face meatloaf sandwich with chipotle sauce and fries? Or fish (usually wolf fish or grouper) in tempura beer batter with roasted potato wedges and horseradish? Smoked braised ribs are served with corn pudding and cilantro-spiked slaw in honey-lime vinaigrette. Two big chicken tacos are made with succulent thigh meat.
For the kind of easy eating Nashvillians love, DeGregory added a selection of sandwiches: a veggie burger, the sloppy Jose, and the rare-grilled tuna sandwich with house-cured pickles and truffled chips. And to prove they’re real Nashvillians now, DeGregory added to the menu an iceberg wedge with blue cheese.
