Bud’s Southern Rotisserie

Cast iron, greens, roast chicken, smothered pork—find these archetypal items, and a host of other culinary icons, at the Pearl’s new Bottling Department, an order-at-the-counter(s) food hall. New Orleans transplant Pieter Sypesteyn takes on Louisiana comfort food with a two-meat concept: slow-cooked porchetta (boneless pork roast) or tender rotisserie chicken, served as a sandwich or on a plate, with your choice of sides, among them yams, cornbread, and slaw. Our porchetta plate was all we could want from a pig, but the sides stole the show: garlicky collards (and we do mean garlic, cooked to tender sweetness), candied sweet potatoes that wouldn’t be out of place on a dessert menu, and Cajun cornbread we had to know more about. The secret ingredients? Cane syrup and cake mix. The only surprise? Only bottled ice teas. (Note: if you’ve ever been to a European food hall, the size, six vendors, might disappoint. But from Fletcher’s Hamburgers to Tenko Ramen, you’ll find fresh, well-prepared, and imaginative dishes to eat on-site or take home. Alcohol is available at the Bar at the Bottling Department.)
