Some friends-and-family preview events will start this Monday, with the restaurant officially launching the following Friday. A reservations number, 615-292-7766, is expected to go live this Friday, Nov. 29, at 10 a.m.
Josephine, a sister restaurant to Pontes' Burger Up down the street, is one of the more anticipated openings of the year. Located at 2316 12th Ave. S., it fills a prominent space in the new 12 South Flats apartment and retail development.
Meanwhile, Pontes and her business partner Jim Lewis are working to open another restaurant, Prima, on the ground floor of Terrazzo in the Gulch. When I talked to Pontes earlier this month, she said Prima was shooting for an opening sometime in mid-2014.
