Visited 8/18 while they were busy and had no available seating, ended up ordering take out and waiting for it inside. Interesting, beautiful venue. Staff was extremely pleasant. The collection of cookbooks is excellent and I am sure personal; I spotted Ratio, the Saltbox cookbook, and several nice baking texts. I had the oxtail and grits and Leahs cabbage. The oxtail was good, nicely cooked, with a nice lightly cooked/pickled carrot. Grits were alright, not quite as tender as my preference but capably made and well flavored. The cabbage was the best Ive ever had, the pork neck bisque is phenomenal. Overall an *excellent* meal and very cool restaurant; I cant wait to come back the next time Im in Charlotte (with a reservation) to order every side in one fell swoop and an entree to go.
10 stars. Every dish had layers of flavor. We had the oxtail dish, crispy chicken skins, Leah's cabbage and the best dessert I have had in years! I highly recommend and we will be back for sure. Jarret, our server, was delightful and attentive. The restaurant is beautiful and comfortable. This is in our top 3 restaurants of all time! I kept forgetting to take pics the food was so good!
The food, staff and atmosphere were all outstanding! The food and drink was delicious. I had blackened catfish, grits, green beans, turkey rice, and the bread/butter. Sat at the bar and had some great conversation with the fun and professional bartenders. Everyone was so cool. The decor and menu are authentic. Loved it!
I had brunch here with a friend. The food and service was excellent. We shared the chicken skins as an appetizer. They were so good, very tasty and crunchy. I had the chicken and waffles as my meal. The waffle was very moist fluffy and delicious. The chicken was delicious also. The only thing I didn't like was they add on gratuity which is fine, however it is extremely high at 23%. My friend had the steak hash with grits. She said it was delicious. It looked very tasty mixed with sweet potatoes. I would definitely recommend this place. However, be prepared for the high gratuity that they call pledge break.
Love the concept and location of this restaurant. While it is a bit small, it honestly gives you a cozy/intimate dining experience. The food that I had was good, but the drinks were excellent. I do think they need to put a big sign on the door stating that they are booked for the day and reservations are highly recommended, as a lot of people coming in and get turned around. This is not your typical Soul-Food restaurant, so please be aware and open-minded. Im honestly glad its not the typical black-owned soul food restaurant. Classy, upscale, customer service was great, and its something different! Keep up the good work.
