Don’t be thrown by the approachable, informal atmosphere: The classically trained Chef Ned Elliott is putting out some seriously sophisticated food. The seasonal menu is limited, but that just means you get to eat your way through it faster.
You could theoretically stay here all day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Daily hot plate specials include meat loaf with Creole sauce and pork loin over cornbread dressing. Expect a wait for weekend brunch.
