Once a month, we set a long table down the middle of the store, gather our friends and folks we admire, and watch the fabulousness happen. After-hours, up-close and personal, these dinners are unique experiences designed around local restaurants, exceptional authors, and sometimes both at the same time. Each menu will reflect a special pairing.  Pat Conroy loved it; you will, too.

Come on in, kids; dinner’s ready.


Sunday Sit-Down Supper with Chef John Malik and Joshilyn Jackson, the author of The Almost Sisters

Sunday August 27th, 7pm

Joshilyn Jackson event.png

One of our most anticipated Southern favorites this summer has been Joshilyn Jackson's new novel The Almost Sisters, for the way she engages essential and evolving small town Southern values with humor and grace. Meet Leia, a usually level-headed graphic novelist, who has one tequila soaked night with Batman at an Atlanta comiccon, and ends up expecting a baby. When she returns to the small Alabama town of her youth to face her conventional family, her drama becomes the least of their concerns, and the skeletons are, literally, falling out of the closet.

We're excited to have John Malik back in the kitchen for this culinary interpretation of Joshilyn's book, with equal attention to tradition and whimsy. (And maybe a little tequila of our own.)

To Start:
Tin Roof Farm tomatoes, smoked tomato mayonnaise, Colonial Milling sourdough cornbread

First Course:
Lady Pea cake, herb salad, apple cider vinaigrette
 
Main Course:
Smoked & braised beef brisket, Colonial Milling grits, wild mushrooms, thyme, shallots
 
Dessert:
Vanilla & lemon zest pound cake, peach & Gewurztraminer jam, vanilla bean powder,
clabbered cream
