The Truffle Table

Given that this wine bar is an offshoot of the Truffle Cheese Shop, cheese is the answer.  A variety of cheese boards and small plates color the menu, while artisan desserts offer a delightful end to your meal.

Nick's Diner

This diner boasts a large menu with all-day breakfast, Greek, Mexican, and American classics. Try the meatloaf.

Pinche Taqueria (Highland)

Try the queso a la plancha made with griddled Cotija cheese, smashed avocado, and roasted tomatillo salsa. A chalkboard displays the extensive tequila menu, and the coin-style margaritas are the perfect accompaniment to any taco. 

Jezebel's Southern Bistro + Bar

Traditional soul food: fried pickles, Southern barbecue, smoked trout, buttermilk fried chicken, and more gluten-free options available.

 

Old Major

Bistro-style, seasonal dining with an emphasis on heritage-raised meat, sustainable seafood, and darn good wine. If you're a steak aficionado, try the 24-ounce, bone-in rib-eye with foie gras butter. Snack from a seasonally-tailored happy hour menu—prices ranging from $2 to $7 tops. 

 

Sassafras American Eatery

Located in a repurposed Victorian home, this eatery charms. Breakfast and lunch are offered all day. Expect to find southern classics like eggs sardou, shrimp and grits, jambalaya, and po'boy sandwiches. Also check out the new Capitol Hill location. 

The Universal

This breakfast and lunch spot enjoys an industrial farmhouse-chic home with lots of natural light. Breakfast is served all day featuring the classics: eggs Benedict, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, omelets and more. Lunch provides a good mix of southern flavors with house-smoked pulled pork and shrimp and grits.

Uncle

A sleek, contemporary atmosphere is home to this noodle house. The selective menu includes dishes such as crab tots with harissa mayonnaise, pork belly steamed buns and, of course, noodles (options include udon, sesame noodles, and pork rib or spicy lamb ramen). Our favorite dish: crispy calamari with flash-fried shishito peppers.
