This downtown restaurant mostly specializes in upscale Southern food, like chicken-fried ribeyes, heritage pork chops, and Gulf seafood chopped salads. They also make a really great fried chicken sandwich that comes covered in kale slaw, sweet tea pickles, chicken mayo, and sunchoke. There’s a daily lunch menu, with smaller-sized portions of many of their dinner favorites, and a biscuit-based breakfast menu with items like biscuit cinnamon rolls and “The Bukowski” - with griddled ham, egg, cheddar cheese, mustard aioli, and pickle relish.
