The main points: chef and co-owner David Baeli (he’s from Florida) will be serving a Southern-inspired, American menu using local ingredients, plus there will be a raw bar, barbecued and smoked meats, an extensive American microbrew program from partner Adam Edwards, and hello Southern fried chicken. The architect and designer is Said Eghbal (Monk’s Kettle), who will be installing a wall of glazed tiles, a tin-panel ceiling, brick walls, and a hot-rolled steel bar. The current targeted opening is January. 1 Tillman Place at Grant.
