I've got a real treat in store as a recommendation for this week-end for your dining pleasure. This downtown restaurant takes southern cooking to the next notch and will definitely leave you looking forward to your next visit. Want to have a special evening with friends? Give them a call and make a reservation. The UT game is Saturday afternoon at 2:30 so you'll still have plenty of time to enjoy this experience!

If you're from the South, these Southern classics will take you back to that feeling of your most memorable Sunday supper. If you're not, you'll wish you were by the end of the evening after Chef James Robert elevates his menu with new and exciting flavors of the South. Each dish he prepares may sound familiar, but, they've been infused with surprising flavors at in his modern style. The open kitchen gives diners a front row seat to all that is going on as Chef Robert and his team assure you a memorable evening. Have a seat in one of their intimate dining rooms, or, how about right at the chef's table?
