Jeff's wife (and our friend) Camille, was nice enough to invite some friends from the 4th floor of the Capitol to taste some of the trial run treats that the restaurant had to offer on opening night.

The lunch menu is not extremely long (which I like), but certainly runs the range of options. Some examples of choices are: Grilled Leg of Rabbit over stewed collard greens then finished with a garlic confit bacon jus ; House-made Biscuit with Boneless Fried Chicken Breast topped with country sausage gravy; Fried Mississippi Catfish topped with a rich tomato court-bouillion stew served over rice and (thankfully) Grits and Grillades. Also...the side dishes range from Duck Confit Hash to Crispy Onion Rings to Bacon. I'm not kidding.
