The gist: Top Chef star Justin Sutherland serves up contemporary Southern cuisine along with bourbon-forward beverages. The restaurant itself isn’t brand-new but got a notable new space last summer when it moved up the hill from Lowertown.
The food: Start with some crawfish hush puppies (or the whole roasted hog jowl if you’re feeling brave) then move along to the “meat bar,” a daily curated selection of cured and smoked pig with accoutrements. The 24-hour smoked beef brisket and smothered tomahawk pork chop may result in some meat sweats, but they’ll be worth it.
The cost: Entrees range from $14 - $32.
How to order: Make a reservation on Resy—indoor and patio seating available—or do delivery on DoorDash.
