The Southern comfort-food boom claims yet another outpost, this time displacing the French fine-dining concept at Bar Blanc. Claim your seat at a table made from an old wooden door to dig into snacks like deviled eggs and pimento-cheese spread, plus mains such as andouille-laced shrimp and grits with tomato gravy. The cocktail list heads south of the Mason-Dixon too, emphasizing bourbon in quaffs like the Lindberg, which features Maker's Mark muddled with blood oranges and garnished with lime and pickled blueberries.
