Fodor's Expert Review Julep's
In the River District, and in the city's oldest commercial building (1817), Julep's has a spiral staircase joining the upper and lower dining areas. The specialty here is New Southern cuisine, with seasonal lunch and dinner menus that include tempting dishes such as roasted game hen stuffed with a risotto of country ham, green peas, and mushrooms. The wine list is one to linger over. Try not to leave without sampling one of the restaurant's namesake drinks.
