Filament is serving up Southern fare with a twist in the heart of Deep Ellum. The menu is focused on wood-fired, Texas-style dishes, each with a globally influenced accent. Here, traditional down-home dishes get a modern makeover -- like the smoked ham Johnny cake okonomiyaki with bonito flakes for a Texas-meets-Tokyo mash-up, or fried country meat pies reminiscent of Asian technique and spice. Mason jars line the whiskey-centric bar, and are full of chow chow, Filament's Southern-inflected version of kimchi. Cocktails keep it local, with a bottled Sazerac for two, or the sorghum-chicory Old Fashioned.
