    One of the few places I've eaten regularly at in NY. Get the pork nuggets, beer/burger pairing, shrimp and grits, pimiento cheese. They also have awesome bourbon cocktails and whisky tastings.

    Chef's breakfast looked promising, but under-delivered. Only thing keeping this place from earning a zero was the Bloody Mary. And to top is all off the waiter was bizarre and increasingly creepy.

    Don't order the pork nuggets. Basically crispy, bland tasting fried crust. No pork whatsoever and fried to death.
