$30 for $60 Worth of Neo-Southern Fare

Stove, the restaurant
When he’s not making paintings for Stove’s walls, Sydney Meers adorns his restaurant’s plates with edible art inspired by American, southern, and French cuisine. With many of the ingredients sourced locally or grown in his garden, diners can discover fresh new fare on nearly every visit. A soup du jour, available in flavors such as peanut pumpkin, warms up belly engines before entrees such as shrimp and grits and grilled Berkshire pork loin park atop their tables. Staying creative with all edibles, Stove's dessert menu continually rotates, like a caffeinated ballerina. Fans of Sydney’s fare can learn how to make it during his interactive cooking classes or by accosting the all-knowing moose head in the wild and crazy Cougar Lounge.
