Rex 1516’s elevated Southern fare is about to get regional.

Executive chef Justin Swain and chef de cuisine Jon Raffa are kicking off a new tasting menu this week — a first for the Graduate Hospital restaurant — with a twist.

Each month, the $45 tasting menu will highlight dishes inspired by the cuisine of a different Southern state. There’s a pretty great beverage pairing add-on, too: another $20 gets you an amaro, two blues-inspired cocktails, and two beers to accompany your meal.

This Thursday, March 22nd, they’ll start off with a Louisiana-centric menu. The Texas menu debuts on April 19th, with the Carolinas on May 24th and Georgia on June 21st.
