OUR FOOD
Vegetable driven family style menu inspired by eclectic California cuisine.

Little Octopus believes that food should make you feel good, and that feeling starts from the inside out. We take pride in being a vegetable driven, locally conscious place to dine. We source the most sustainable options available to us, because caring for our planet drives the choices on our menu. We work closely with farmers and fisherman to buy only what is in season and readily available.

Lots of Vegan and Gluten free options.

OUR DRINKS
Classics driven and always conscious, the beverage program is driven by ingredients and ideas from our kitchen such as drinking vinegars made from citrus and herbs to a natural wine program that is affordable and fun.

OUR SPACE
Built by the incredible Design, Bitches of Los Angeles, this dynamic female duo were about to transport the vibe and feel Santa Monica Bay at sunset to us here in Nashville. The LO space is simple, it's inventive and it makes you feel good. Just like our food. Just like a California sunset.

OUR NAME
In short, The Little Octopus is Sarah Gavigan, owner and Chef. A nickname given to her when she was young by her mentor for “always having her tentacles moving and always changing colors.” That notion formed who she is, a deep love of the animal itself and the ethos of the restaurant today.
