Hours: Wed.-Mon., 11am-8pm
This enterprise features mashups of Southern comfort food and classic Thai dishes. Son-in-law eggs, a popular Thai street food consisting of deep-fried boiled eggs seasoned with tamarind, for instance, are transformed into church picnic-worthy deviled eggs topped with wisps of fennel. Try the Low Country shrimp and grits salted with Virginia country ham and swimming in a broth of tom kha soup.
