Fodor's Review

Owner-chef Frank Stitt is a James Beard Award winner and an American culinary icon. Using farm-fresh ingredients and applying French technique to his native Southern cuisine, Stitt became a sensation when he opened his restaurant in 1982. Straightforward but sophisticated dishes such as pan-seared scallops with butter-braised fennel or the kitchen’s famous stone-ground baked grits with Parmesan, mushrooms, country ham, and fresh thyme are served in a romantic, candlelit atmosphere. Seats are so coveted that reservations are accepted a month in advance.
