Dish of the Month

Quote of the Month

“Jesus, this ain’t the glossy pages of Saveur. The writer appears to be a (partially) reformed lunatic with low-grade early onset dementia, complemented by a bachelor’s degree in general dirt bagery. There’s room for that, isn’t there? Let the guy talk about whiskey and barbecue.” –  75 South on Jason Sheehan’s second day
