This exciting little food joint was opened in 2007 by CIA grad Ira Lee, who formed his menu around the soul food he grew up eating, but with a multicultural twist of flavors he’s discovered over the years. Everything about this particular treat screams down-home comfort food — thick, belly-filling mac-and-cheese mixed with tender, savory pulled pork and a tangy barbecue sauce. Even a small serving is adequately satisfying. Vegetarians can try the tofu option — which is so flavorful that carnivores will even enjoy it. Wash it down with a lavender-infused lemonade for a truly Southern-inspired treat.
