The local outpost of this San Diego-based chain commodifies American classics with enough cleverness to make them seem exotic. Look for duck fat french fries with tomato jam as well as buffalo wings trimmed to resemble lollipops. The shrimp and bacon grits are a credit to their Southern classic status, and brunch is also a bright spot. Duck fat biscuits and gravy, and delicious bacon await you here.
