AAA Inspector Notes
Renowned Swedish-American chef Marcus Samuelsson has solidified his place as an urban visionary restaurateur with a menu that is a post-modern mash-up: Southern comfort foods versus Samuelsson's Northern European roots. The deviled eggs, fried chicken and waffles with maple hot sauce, and cornbread with roasted tomato and corn butter are crowd pleasers. The food perfectly captures the culinary spirit of this fast gentrifying neighborhood with a patio that is perfect for people-watching.
