The innovative grill from whence that wonderful smoked chicken and other entrees emerge. The food that we tasted at media/industry night was amazing: housemade charcuterie, pickles and terrines; cornmeal-crusted fried oysters; house-made sausage; grilled steak; and smoked chicken. Partner Rodney Muirhead has created a simpler all-day menu and a more elaborate menu of chicken and steaks for the evening -- it's all scratch-made and all great. (FoystonFoto)
