Boasting a large bar, a formal dining room, pool tables, and a soon-to-be-open patio, the Hub offers a dining experience that delivers beyond the eats. Not that the eats leave anything to be desired: southern-inspired small plates, like pimento cheese with bacon pudding, are the savory shareable offerings du jour here, while drinks come in the form of creatively and gorgeously spun cocktails like a pastel pink gin Flame Dame prepared with egg white. After dinner, the lights are lowered and the music is turned up a bit, giving the restaurant a club-like vibe (open until 2am) without ever losing its casual ambiance.
