Downtown's most popular business lunch destination is the place for contemporary all-American comfort food.
A savvy mix of comfort and urbanity. Recommended dishes: Deviled eggs, roast chicken, steam-fried salmon, pork ribs, catfish. The excellent house-made ice creams and the whimsical floating islands, delicate poached meringues wafting in a vanilla sauce and topped with pecans. Also available, buy-by-the-piece options, which allow diners to tailor choices based upon their appetite. Wine list: Wide, intriguing collection; some especially good values. (Rick Nelson, 7/8/2004)
