Decor incorporating vintage aprons and paintings by local artists set a homey tone in a splendidly renovated 1920s gas station, a space where we never tire of chef Molly McCook’s unexpected approach to refined Southern cuisine. Chopped radishes, cucumbers, peppers, and purple onion tossed with arugula in a creamy yogurt dressing come with wedges of warm naan sprinkled with thyme-forward za’atar, a dish that presents a tart foil for the subtle but peppery spice in the dark roux bathing shreds of turkey and slices of tender andouille in a bowl of gumbo. Lightly marinated lump blue crab adorns buttery lettuce, drizzled in a faint rémoulade and accompanied by feather-light green onion–flecked hush puppies. Perky green tomato salsa complements a Duroc pork shank rubbed with ground red chiles.
