Westword's Description

Venue serves American comfort food. It serves American comfort food prepared with French technique, with a little Italian influence, with a green-market sensibility.

    The grits here are amazing. Also, get the coffee. It is from a local roaster, Copper Door.

    The shrimp-n-grits are to die for.

    Two glasses of wine - the light and fruity ’09 ControVento, Dolcetto from Alba, Italy and the rare and bold ’04 Bava “Cocconato” Nabbiolo, from Barolo Italy
