The interior is relatively small with a large bar on one side and a bunch of tables on the other. It is a simple yet minimal style that goes well with the unique food that they serve.
The menu is eclectic with everything from meatloaf and ramen to creole mussels and chicken & waffles. I was there with a large group so we tried a little bit of everything. Here are some of the things we ordered.
Roasted Cauliflower Appetizer – The roasted cauliflower is to die for, which is saying a lot as I try to stay away from cauliflower. It’s grilled to perfection and has Parmesan on top. The sauce that goes with it is a like a sweet sauce with a little spice and it is fantastic.
Potatoes – Another fantastic side, the potatoes are roasted in buttermilk aioli and lightly crusted in salt. The buttermilk aioli they put on top is a great addition that is super creamy and the whole thing comes out in a cast iron pan.
Hatch Chicken – Juicy chicken with a lot of flavor that falls off the bone. It comes with two sauces, a buttermilk dip that is creamy and hot sauce that is really spicy. I liked putting both of them together and mixing it with the chicken.
For dessert we also got two different options which were:
Hootch Cake – A moist cake with butter pecan ice cream, caramel and liquor on top. Strong liquor flavor but really good with a small crunch in the cake.
Chocolate Crémeux – Served in a mason jar, this chocolate pudding dish had a vanilla buttermilk creme and a light blood orange taste. My favorite of the desserts as it was rich but fantastic.
As you can see this is a unique spot with southern food, lots of buttermilk sauces and nontraditional takes on a fresh cooked meal. I really liked the atmosphere here and thought it went well with all of the crazy flavors and fun drinks.
