Modern American Food and Drink meets Old-World Nostalgia

Executive Chef Eric Cook serves a unique Victory Garden-to-Table menu, featuring locally grown vegetables and herbs, as well as hand-selected meats, seafood, and dairy products from local and artisanal producers. The menu is inspired by both regional and Southern favorites, such as the Crispy Oyster “BLT,” Shrimp and Grits, and all-American standards including the Belle Burger and Chicken Fried Steak. The menu includes Victory Garden salads, gumbo, sandwiches, entrée provisions, and sweets.
