Time Out says

Fresh off a season of Top Chef, Australia native Janine Booth joins fellow TV toque Jeff McInnis (Miami's Yardbird) to retool Deep South standbys. McInnis follows his grandmother’s recipe for fried chicken but adds a dusting of dehydrated lemon and sandwiches it between two cheddar waffles, while grilled peaches, pickled green tomatoes and molasses vinegar top fried pimiento cheese in a Dixieland take on caprese. Reclaimed wood, repurposed scaffolding and recycled whiskey bottles become chandeliers and lamps in the 45-seat dining room, and animal-bone beer taps take center stage at the bar, where cocktail creator Cecilia Romero whips egg into the Bumble 'n' Bone ($12), a black-pepper-laced maple-and-gin quaff.

My consistent restaurant week favorite. They kill it every year. In addition to the app, entree, and dessert, they give you biscuits and mac and cheese for the table. The biscuits are insane. They give you salt and seeds to dip it in and it's always my favorite. The deviled eggs are perfect little bite. The mac and cheese is heaven. Fried chicken rocks. I'm not crazy about the shrimp and grits, a little too dry. The cobbler to end is perfect.

Order the fried chicken with a side of waffles instead of the pre-made chicken and waffles. This place is adorably instagramably and also has great food! Get here early for brunch and there is usually no wait. The deviled eggs although cute are not the best thing on the menu...get the bacon instead. 

I went to Root & Bone fro Restaurant Week, and I left really happy. A lot of RW deals are not actually that great of a deal: Some restaurants give you the stuff they need to get rid of or exclude their famous dish from the RW menu. Not so at Root & Bone. For $25 I had a delicious brunch that included an appetizer and dessert AND a shared plate for the table, when the shrimp and grits entree alone cost $25. I order the fried chicken and waffles, which came with maple bourbon and tabasco honey sauces. Amazing. The dessert, strawberry shortcake, was the best part. I haven't had a biscuit that delicious in a looong time.
