Gold Dust Meridian


This mid-century slick, candle-lit, TV-free spot just below Boutique Row offers warm-ups like a Ginger Cayenne Hot Toddy, plus massive bowls you probably shouldn't drink by yourself. Upped food items include appetizers (arancini, crab cakes), "specialties" like the popular fried oyster po' boy, and sandwiches. Guest can either grab a table out front (if you want to sit on Hawthorne and check out the passersby) or opt for the tree-lined, partially covered back patio.
