The seasonal and local menu, “celebrates the soul of the south” and will change based on the season and what’s available. With six dedicated sections, the menu will offer “snacks,” “chilled” and “small plates” perfect for sharing, as well as an entire section dedicated to grits. From there, guests will have a number of mains entrées to choose as well.
“Growing up in small town Louisiana, food was a very big part of my life. With cooks on both sides of my family tree, I saw early on that food has a way of bringing people together,” said Executive Chef and Co-Owner, James Robert. “This menu showcases familiar tastes and dishes that I grew up with – you’ll see a section dedicated to an heirloom variety of grits, biscuits, boudin and more – but each with an element of surprise. The familiar is definitely there, we’ve just reimagined how it all comes together for the guest.”
The Daily Social menu is available in the bar, lounge and outdoor patio beginning at 4pm (before dinner service begins at 5) and lasting until 7pm, seven days a week offers guests some great bites and $1 off all cocktails, beers, and glasses of wine.
