There’s a place below the Mason-Dixon Line, where box wine is served with aplomb, chicken + waffles =
dinner, and beer is best served canned.
It’s called the South.
And it’s about to land on Highland Avenue.
, your new little slice of the Confederacy, slated to soft-open later this week in
Born from the mind of Jason Owens (Local 149), this is the kind of cozy, old-school
diner you might find in a small town in the Deep South
. Think: vintage swivel stools, chalkboard tables,
a refrigerator from the 1940s and a pressed-tin ceiling.
So once you and a few buddies have rolled in here, you’ll want to start off with a couple of their more
than 20 canned beers (PBR, Miller, Schlitz). Then, move on to some Southern classics
—dishes like country-fried steak, pan-fried catfish,
duck-fat burgers and house-pickled fried okra.
As things loosen up, you might even order a Beer Can Hen
, cooked with a can of Porkslap Ale shoved
into it so the beer steams into the meat.
We’re pretty sure this is how Lynyrd Skynyrd celebrates Thanksgiving.
