Deep Southern fried chicken and house-cured bacon spot.

Thus concludes our virtual tour of the Mission.

You’ll now get your fried fix at Buttermilk Southern Kitchen, a homey yet high-end Southern spot for fried chicken and mimosas, soft-opening tomorrow only and then officially opening Friday.

In the land of taquerias, there’s now this: a cozy, airy neighborhood spot you’ll frequent for the oxtail hash and buttermilk-biscuit eggs benedict. There’s a real Deep South vibe here, with a partly barn-wood interior and pickles-and-spice-filled mason jars lining the walls. (Here’s the slideshow.)

Come with a date on a lazy Saturday and head outside to a sunny sidewalk table. Then just relax and let it all happen. They’ll bring out make-your-own mimosas, barrel-aged maple syrup for your pain perdu and housemade, well, basically everything—bacon, buttermilk, sweet tea—from the huge open kitchen.

If you’ve got more of an evening-with-a-group-of-friends situation in mind, think seats at a banquette table under the slow fans and lanterns. Then: gumbo. Jambalaya. Carolina-style pulled pork. Louisiana-style brisket. Secret-recipe-style fried chicken.

We think it’s got something to do with buttermilk.
