Boiled peanuts, salty-soft nibbles. Blackened little curlicues of tobacco onions. Pimiento cheese sandwiches tempered by dainty celery sticks and a fried pickled okra that nary got away. This tiny refuge for Southern-swayed appetites is a local obsession with its quietly genius beverage program, gratifying late-night menu until 12:30am, and mismatched dishes for kicks-grandma's-ass desserts (whatever it is, get it à la mode). If you’re tucking in for a serious dinner, reservations are wise; but we find that securing seats at the tiny bar is worth the gamble.
