3 tasty spots to get Southern comfort food this winter

This Dogpatch staple has a new chef, Tommy Halvorson (Chez Panisse, Bix, Gary Danko), and a new interior (tons more windows). The restaurant serves vibrant cocktails alongside southern-inspired dishes including a Nashville hot chicken sandwich and tender short ribs over dirty rice with pickled okra and cauliflower. And save room for the tart key lime pudding. 

The Front Porch

Replete with front porch rocking chairs, buckets of fried chicken, eclectic decor and a friendly staff, The Front Porch oozes Southern charm. Try the house hot sauce, crawfish hush puppies, Dr. Pepper-braised short ribs and the blackened wild Gulf flounder with duck fat roasted potatoes and blue lake beans in a blue crab buerre blanc.


Botellón is an ideal meeting spot for a bite and drink. Chef Nicholas Andoe's Oklahoma roots shine in two of the best bites on the menu: jalapeño chorizo cornbread and house smoked pork ribs in charred scallion BBQ sauce.
