Gulf Coast shrimp on San Francisco sourdough. Pennsylvania pierogis with North Carolina BBQ pork. Down-home Southernness like bacon cheese grit cakes and fried green tomatoes. If it sounds like Native is pulling cuisine from all over the country... then you haven't already stopped reading and starting driving over to eat shrimp sandwiches and pulled pork pierogis. For shame.
The place is decked out in warm, reclaimed woods, and antique cabinet doors act as wallpaper. Don't bother trying to pull them open looking for sweets... already tried.
Instead, get to the polished wooden bar and hit the links with the Native Tea-ni, a play on an Arnold Palmer with Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka and house lemonade. Or just get one of the many local brews on tap.
The Chocolate Love Affair gets dessert started early with Godiva Chocolate Liqeur, Frangelico, and Grand Marnier.
That there salad's the Black and Bleu Pear, which may or may not have been the name of one of those Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and is loaded with blackened gulf shrimp, Gorgonzola, and boozy, port-poached pears.
Keep the coastal flair going with crab cakes, popcorn crawfish, and this heaping bowl of mussels steamed in a garlic beurre blanc white wine sauce.
Ahh, the Drunken Brick Oven Duck: marinated in peach brandy sauce, then cooked in said brick oven. You know...for flame.
