Dining Guide


This artful fine-dining locale lays on thick the modern Southern charm, in both elegant decor and beautiful food. Plump hush puppies filled with Carolina Gold Rice impressed us, but tender smoked cabbage served with classic Southern chowchow and creamy white Alabama barbecue sauce stole the show. It even outshone entrées—but only by a narrow margin—of pan-seared red snapper over creamy rice with green peas and a perfectly grilled wagyu strip. Hoppin’ John sheds its homely origins with this preparation of heritage peas, smoky potlikker, and a creamy farm-fresh soft-boiled egg, and roasted chicken has never felt so decadent, served with glazed sweet potato wedges and creamy potato puree. Zucchini bread for dessert was anything but average, but seasonal peach ice cream had us humming “Georgia on My Mind.”
