Craig Samuel and Ben Grossman (Peaches, the Smoke Joint) preach the comfort-food gospel at this down-home Clinton Hill hideaway. In the farmhouse-inspired dining room—outfitted with rural touches like vintage radios, cast-iron chicken figurines and blue wainscoting—wooden tables are set with dishes that span the South. Gold skillet rice with thyme-roasted tomatoes tip a hat to Charleston, SC; country ham with benne butter reps Finchville, KY; and their “extra-fancy” fried chicken—the house specialty—follows Memphis tradition, seasoned with lemon, a honey brine and secret-recipe hot sauce. In the brick-laden barroom, grab a stool at the copper-trimmed bar for cocktails that skew below the Mason-Dixon Line: A classic mint julep swaps out bourbon for sloe gin, while Kentucky's Bulleit whiskey meets Belle de Brillet and Gran Classico in the Marietta.

I love this place. Great food, great service, great vibe. Admittedly, I lived around the corner and it was my local, but I go back even now that I live further away.
I read the reviews and some of the negative ones seem to be from brunchers. I never did brunch there. I don't reallly do brunch and have ideas about people that do, like they're harder to please, for starters. So maybe if that's you, stay away. Otherwise, go. You won't be sorry.
