Chef Jon Languell offers a long, winding dinner menu filled with new twists on Southern classics, such as mac 'n' cheese, fried chicken, and fried green tomatoes. Prepare mandibles for an evening of refined munching with spiced ahi tuna tataki, topped with roasted-green-tomato salsa verde, cilantro syrup, and pickled red onions ($9). Maine reunites with the South for the first time since Pangaea's puzzle-like rearrangement in a lobster mac 'n'cheese starter seasoned with tomatoes and herbs ($10). Classic pan-fried chicken hails from the free ranges of Springer Mountain Farms and comes dressed with peach chutney alongside bacon-infused succotash and buttermilk mashed potatoes. Quash two cravings at once with seafood and sausage étouffée , a savory combination of peppers, onions, okra, and stewed tomatoes filled with sausage and a maritime lineup of mussels, shrimp, scallops, and catfish.
Midday diners can feast on heaping handhelds, such as the Jim Beam barbecue burger made with Kobe beef and layered with house-crafted Jim Beam barbecue sauce, melted white cheddar, and grilled onions ($9). Film-loving mouths can sample cinematically acclaimed fried green tomatoes on a BLT outfitted with pimiento cheese, baby greens, and applewood-smoked bacon on texas toast ($8.50).
Nestled in the recently constructed yet classically appointed Inn at I’On, Jacob’s comfortably seats 42 outside on a covered, wraparound porch. Inside, drop lighting illuminates a bright dining room lined with clean creams and whites and dark wood accents.
