Beer. Biscuits. Pickles. That’s comfort food to me. I fell in love with Southern-style cooking early on in my travels. I love the warmth and charm of it-think buttermilk fried chicken, served on top of a biscuit drizzled with clover honey, then topped with our Hot Sour pickles. It’s food that makes you smile.
Comfort food is about starting from scratch and making good food for good people. It’s the kind of back-to-basics cooking that has been going on for generations. Today, we’re inspired by the local, artisanal craft movement – a community of farmers, suppliers, and cooks, all working together to bring you the best food possible. We source greens from the Union Square Market; root beer from Saranac, New York; and prime meats from the butcher shop I grew up with in Queens. It’s a really cool community of people that genuinely care about creating the best– for all of us.
