    Be sure to bring your ID if you want to drink. The restaurant is in a dry area of the Heights so you must join their "private club" (membership is free).

    Mid-day menu was small, but the fried chicken sandwich was delicious. Queen B was yummy and pretty, plus they serve Rocket Fuel. Servers were so friendly and attentive. Well-staffed! Perfect date spot

    Kimchi Burger was great! Moscow Mule was okay. Grab a beer and a burger to keep the price down.

    Shrimp and grits with the poached eggs and bacon. Nice combination of textures and flavors. Pho broth with cilantro and scallions give the dish a refreshing new take on traditional southern dish.

    The food is incredible. I had the curry fish and chips and it was perfect. Cooked as you'd expect, lightly breaded on a bed of curry sauce. The fries were on point too. The menu changes regularly.

    So glad to see vegan breakfast tacos added to the menu. Roasted Vegetables, Spices, Tofu, Peppers, Avocado, Arugula. The eggplant and onions are smoked overnight. Really tasty stuff!

    Shrimp and grits dish was really nice. Interesting combination that turned out really well. Had the ceviche as an appetizer and were initially disappointed by the small portion, but it was delicious!

    Feeling ravenous? Dig into scratch-made biscuits and sausage gravy or a kimchi-topped burger. Want to go light? Try the housemade yogurt, complete with berry jam, maple syrup and walnut granola. Read more
