The gist: Chef Erick Williams just garnered a James Beard Award for his work at this Southern American restaurant, located in the city’s Hyde Park neighborhood. Enter and feel instantly welcomed—warm lighting, inviting banquettes, and local artwork beckon guests to linger inside, while a patio does the trick in warmer months. As if you needed any more reason to visit, chef de cuisine Damarr Brown was a finalist on the most recent season of Top Chef, only adding to the creativity coming out of this kitchen.
The food: Elevated takes on Southern comfort cooking populate the menu here, including green tomatoes with Gulf shrimp, gumbo with andouille sausage, and catfish with blackened “Carolina Gold” rice. The lamb t-bone, with asparagus, sorghum grain, and chermoula, is a favorite—as are the kitchen-inspired house cocktails.

This Southern-tinged Southside fixture from James Beard finalist Erick Williams features a small but lively seasonal sidewalk seating area open for sun-starved hopefuls. The menu showcases belly-warming options like Blackened Catfish, Gizzards with dirty rice and gravy, and the eatery’s famously enticing Green Tomatoes littered with plump shrimp and housemade remoulade. In a word, yum.
