The tasting menu is worth it.
Great good and cocktails.
Loved this dining experience. Get the egg appetizer - unique and delicious, a Southern bimbimbap.
Fantastic bar scene with artisan cocktails. Highly recommend the snacks "In Jars" to start and the Nantucket Bay scallops. Hanger steak was cooked perfectly. Great craft beer selection , too.
Great date spot, pricey but worth it, cocktails and wine list on point
Walked in 1 min before closing and still experienced top notch service and flawless execution of food. This place is legit. The grilled octopus and white kimchi salad was fantastic.
Fried chicken biscuit sandwich is out of this world good.
Can you say lamb confit? How about Farro eggplant or pumpkin duck breast? All end with delicious!

One of the best beverage programs top-to-bottom in the city.
The Pimiento cheese is unlike anything I've ever had. Get it it is worth getting.
Happy Hour for Kristen!
Good drinks and atmosphere
OMG. The Pimento Cheese spread is mind-blowing.
Brewing coffees from several great roasters. 4 Barrel, George Howell, Heart, 49th Parallel, Counter Culture.
Food and service was GREAT
Can't miss the octopus!
Love the Farm Egg!
Absolutely delicious, fresh, healthy lunch (I had the super foods plate.) Big bonus was seeing Hugh Acheson walk out the door near me... I'm a huge Top Chefs franchise fan! 10+ in my book! Yum!
The staff have impeccable beards. Seriously.
The pretzel rolls and steak were awesome. Service was superb!!! Try it.
When at the bar, John Wayne and only John Wayne
They love Stevie Wonder here
If you can spare the time, stop by for breakfast on a weekday!
FYI - No more valet parking
Amazing kale salad. Super food kind of stuff.
Gotta love a restaurant with several Prince albums on the playlist! Also, the pimento cheese with bacon marmalade is delish!
I like sitting at the bar with Cody, who is a great bartender, ordering the jars starter...amazing! It is a lot to eat, the bacon and pimento cheese is to die for, so half the time that is dinner...
Had a few great meals at ESS. In the heart of Midtown, close to everything, bangin food!
Great bourbon selection that is reasonably priced.
Always get the jars and farm egg
Great food! Get the Farm Egg
My first try for soul food, farm egg didn't disappoint me at all.
Sit at the bar and watch Kelly work. She is amazing.
Must try In Jars starter!
The Alpine Summer cocktail is very refreshing
Try the Alpine summer -
Try the Crimson Dandy - Delicious!
The deconstructed cheesecake is incredible. Unbelievable.
Ask for Randy, get the stuff in jars.
Great outdoor venue to enjoy the rest of this warm weather. Definitely a place for foodies.
Bathrooms smell like bacon
