Brunch

Empire State South is Hugh Acheson’s ode to southern food, and even though it’s located in an office building, the upscale restaurant plates dishes authentic enough to be home-cooked. The breakfast lineup boasts toasts, parfaits, eggs, and hoecakes with apple butter, cane syrup, and grilled city ham, while dinner offerings combine shareable creations like ricotta, smoked catfish mousse, pimento cheese and bacon marmalade “In Jars,” with larger plates like flounder, rabbit, and pork loin. Though the weekday lunch crowd is heavily skewed towards people in suits, the bocce ball court makes Empire State South a spot equally suitable for families.
