Southern Cooking

Staff Pick

It seems absurd, but until the last year or two it was difficult to find good SOUTHERN COOKING outside the city’s soul-food cafes. The exceptions were Watershed and Horseradish Grill, but they’ve been joined now by JCT Kitchen and Bar, Rare, and Sweet Lowdown. Restaurant Eugene’s Sunday suppers pay homage to our regional tradition, and Quinones at Bacchanalia also features a Southern accent. All these restaurants endeavor to use local ingredients and, besides preparing traditional dishes, most also do creative riffs on the food of our mothers and fathers.
