A visit to Bluff Park in Natchez demonstrates why the town attracted the French in the 18th century and why it then became the capital of the Mississippi Territory: the riverside cliffs offer a clear strategic military advantage. Today, the high vantage point above the Mississippi River is cherished for its stunning, panoramic beauty rather than its defensive position. Nearby, horse-drawn carriages set off from Canal and Washington and go clip-clopping down the streets.Throughout town, beneath boughs of oak trees dripping with spanish moss, dozens of antebellum mansions show off their Greek Revivalist columns and wide-brimmed straw hats affixed to chimneys to combat the southern sun. Several restored mansions open their doors year-round for tours, but many remain private residences to this day. Near the river, the Natchez Museum of African American History and Culture illustrates the history of slavery in the region through historical artifacts and turn-of-the-century portraiture.
When Don Newcomb, Debra Bryson, and Chris Newcomb opened the first Newk's (short for Newcomb's) back in 2004, they hoped to move away from the American traditions of fast food?that is, food that came out fast, but wasn't very fresh. So the foodies created a place that quickly dished out gourmet sandwiches dotted with pesto, crisp mixed-green salads loaded with housemade chicken salad, hand-rolled pizzas, and gooey mac 'n' cheese with asiago, white cheddar, parmesan, swiss, and Newk's signature pimiento cheese. It even has a variety of grab-and-go meals, including sandwiches, made-from-scratch soups, and pasta salads.
Since then, Newk's has expanded to a long list of locations across the U.S. The menu now boasts 600-calorie options that are at least 600 times more satisfying than a glass of water. It also caters to patrons with food sensitivities with its allergen menu tool.
