Menu detail

Ginger Agave Arnie Palmer
We'll keep you refreshed with our bottomless ginger agave Arnie Palmers, garnished with a bit of mint!
Oyster Mushroom Po' Boy
We love frying up oyster mushrooms in a a seasoned chickpea batter, and they sit beautifully with tomato, lettuce, and our remoulade sauce in crisp French bread to make a tasty 'po boy sandwich
Black-eyed Pea Salad with Sweet Fermented Peppers and Eggplant Bacon
Small Plate
We'll cook up rich black-eyed peas, chill them, and toss them with finely chopped vegetables, fermented peppers, and a bright eggplant bacon vinaigrette
Long Cooked Greens
Small Plate
We'll slow cook greens for several hours with garlic, rich olive oil, and sea salt, then lightly dress it with fresh lemon for a little lift
Chiogga Beets with Citrus, Walnuts, and Cashew Crema
Small Plate
We love beets, especially chiogga beets, and will turn them into a delicious salad with fresh citrus, toasted walnuts, cashew crema and fresh herbs
Okra Gumbo w/Wild Rice
A classic okra gumbo served up with our mixture of Japanese Haiga Mai & Wild rice, scallions and file powder. We'll start it with the 'holy trinity' of cajun cooking, onions, celery, and bell peppers. We'll add a lot of garlic, some seared okra, a long cooked roux, a rich stock, and 8 different herbs and spices. Then top it off with a mix of white, brown, and wild rice, topped with scallions, parsley, and file powder. We don't overcook the vegetables, so it's still bright, but very hearty.
Mindful Baking Sweet Potato Pie
A tasty (and gluten free) sweet potato pie made by our friends at Mindful Baking
