What we believe is a noble endeavor indeed. So stop on by, cop a seat and sample some made from-scratch divinity. We re serving up the freshest, most inventive takes on regional Southern fare seven days a week with a foot-stompin , soul-healin brunch on the weekends. We ll keep a place set for you.
