A Nashville music industry veteran is teaming up with a pair of Austin, Texas, restaurateurs to bring breakfast tacos to 12South.

Ladybird Taco is slated to open in early 2020 at 2229 10th Ave. S. in the space where Bob Bernstein recently closed BOX – Bongo & Bakery.

Inspired by Texas culture, Ladybird Taco will specialize in breakfast tacos, in addition to homemade tortillas, salads, house-made salsas and queso. The beverage program will include coffee and espresso drinks in the morning, and alcoholic beverages in the afternoon.

Ladybird is the brainchild of Gabe Scott, a 20-year veteran in the Nashville music industry, alongside his longtime friends Andrew Wiseheart and Ben Edgerton of Austin-based Edgewise Hospitality. Wiseheart and Edgerton own Contigo Restaurant, Contigo Catering, Contigo Fareground and Last Straw in Austin. Contigo Restaurant was named Eater’s “Best New Restaurant” in 2011 and the “Austin Restaurant of the Year” in 2013, among other accolades.

Scott was inspired to open a Nashville breakfast taco restaurant after falling in love with the grab-and-go comfort food culture in Texas.

Ladybird will serve breakfast, brunch and lunch. It will be open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. seven days a week.
