The chefs at Southern Exposure specialize in preparing traditional foods using their favorite family recipes to craft authentic southern dishes. Their menu showcases made-to-order po-boys, gumbo, hush puppies alongside entrees such as blackened catfish, shrimp etouffee, and country-fried steak. These eats pair with a slew of classic southern sides ranging from spicy greens to red beans and rice.
The restaurant's infatuation with southern culture doesn't end there—its stage is frequently graced with local and international musical acts that croon folk and country songs. Events such as live comedy and open-mic nights, dancing lessons, and cooking demonstrations also keep visitors entertained.

Like FDR's White House staff, the team at Makin Waves has more than 20 years of experience doing what they do. With Matrix, Paul Mitchell, and Coppola products, they trim, style, and color hair. And the elegance they impart to their clients' coiffures is matched by their salon's surroundings. Mocha-colored walls hold long mirrors flanked by gilded faux ivy, and blond-hardwood floors evoke the highlights being splashed into hair above them.
Roger and Dana founded Just Buns to share myriad sweet and savory variations on the family recipe for delicious baked goods. The freshly baked pastries plump their dough with Cabot butter, and sweet varieties then adjourn to don sprinkles of cinnamon and brown sugar like a sugar-plum fairy at prom. Other flavors embrace fillings that range from raspberry to roasted garlic. Monthly variations lavish taste buds with Callebaut chocolate, pistachio, or banana, allowing customers to experience a wide range of flavors without staring at a baker through a kaleidoscope. Patrons may select a combination of pesto, apricot, and coconut buns to bring home, or stay true to a single filling with 12 cheese-stuffed pastries.
