This new venture from Jon Alexis (TJ’s Seafood) quickly won hearts in the Park Cities neighborhood with its warm vibe and killer lineup of comforting, casual American dishes such as French onion dip, marinated tomatoes, and brussels sprouts (above). We started with ricotta dip with truffle honey and pistachio, served with lightly toasted focaccia. Pork milanese came pounded thin, panko-crusted, and fried, while Italian sausage rigatoni with kale and sage had a just-right hint of fennel. Grilled salmon over cheesy grits arrived perfectly done, and chocolate brownie cake with vanilla ice cream made an ideal finish. Reservations are recommended for the dining room, but there’s a patio for walk-ins.
