There is nothing more pleasurable to see a restaurant in it's early days trying hard with a winning formula. This is in a lovely historical building in Mount Vernon. Comfort food, southern style, with a modern twist- but not the pretentious, odd ingredient recipes that so many new restaurants feel they need to do. Notable dishes- risotto with shrimp (very creamy with skewered perfectly cooked shrimp), mushrooms (seasonal and delicious), SHRIMP WITH GRITS (get this one for sure!), meat and potatoes (fall off the bone meat with scalloped yams). Excellent drinks from the bartender mixologist. Dessert- coconut cake- OMG!
The best part- service. Hostess and Leo our waiter- friendly and earnest. However, the best part- Ezra, chef/owner- came to the table to meet us, ask our feedback. He is handsome, personable, has a winning smile. I love a place where the owner takes such pride and seriousness in his business. This place does things well.
