Langston Bar & Grille serves nutritious Southern comfort fare made from fresh, organic produce and free-range meats. Take charge of your mealsperience with hearty menu entrees such as shrimp and grits served with a choice of two sides ($14), including fried okra and sweet-potato fries ($4 each, à la carte).

Patrons can pop in for lunch and settle belly debts with a Jim Thorpe big-beef burger ($9) or an Ann Gregory barbecued-meatloaf sandwich ($9), both of which pair flavorfully with a starter of jerk wings and dirty rice ($8), made from grains that compulsively tell off-color jokes about gardening soil.
The eatery's friendly, attentive staff and cozy décor of exposed brick, multicolored walls, and funky art pieces foster a laid-back, homey atmosphere. Langston Bar & Grille's eponymous hardwood bar is perfect for sharing well-mixed drinks and squirrel-wrangling tales of yore while watching the big game on flat-screen TVs.
Langston Bar & Grille
Taking its name from U.S. Congressman and Freedmen's Bureau official John Mercer Langston, Langston Bar & Grille maintains a connection to tradition with its country-style meals of shrimp and grits, black-eyed peas, and barbecue ribs. The eatery blends haute cuisine with home cooking, not only on its Southern-tinged menu—which features dishes such as wild-caught fish fried in cornmeal batter and Angus beef burgers—but also in a classy lounge atmosphere of art-decked walls, patio seating, and a full-service bar. Like a barbecue smoker full of chips from free-range hickory trees, the foods themselves infuse a touch of healthy, responsible eating to the rich and satisfying flavors of Southern cuisine, with organic veggies and sides such as baked cabbage, string beans, and collard greens. Guests can complement their home-style feasts with slices of sweet potato pie, glasses of wine and beer, or sweet-smelling imported cigars.
