Under the helm of uber talented chef Scott Dickenson, 1816 Modern Kitchen & Drinks features Southern comfort fusion with fresh farm-totable fare. Delectable main items include a gorgeous Ramen (seriously, it’s beautiful), Pork Belly General Tso and Larry’s Crispy Skin Chicken. But we could happily stick to eating order after order of the Brussels Sprouts and Poutine. They’re THAT delicious. Must Try: If you’re seeking a refreshing change – whether dining in or doing carryout – don’t forget an order of
Watermelon Gazpacho. And did we mention the Brussels Sprouts and Poutine?

garnered rave reviews for its 12 different types of chicken salad
– handmade each morning – as well as the sides, sandwiches and sweet treats. Must Try: There’s a chicken salad to please every palate, but don’t forget to give the Pimento Cheese, Grape Salad and Broccoli Salad a try, too. ats carries those staples, too. Unsure how to cook a particular cut, want a suggestion for your next purchase or have a question about where the meats come
from? Just ask. The staff is knowledgeable and super friendly. Pop in and we’re pretty sure this will be your new go-to meat market for sure. Follow @preferredmeatsinc on Facebook.

Red on Main is a family-owned, chef-inspired
bistro featuring pasta, steaks, seafood, fresh
salads, charcuterie boards and an exquisite
speakeasy with a full bar, including handcrafted
cocktails. The Black & Bleu Salad is
a popular choice (we always ask for extra Smoky
Bleu Cheese Dressing). Must Try: Go all in on
the specials of the day, which vary from savory
soups to delicious entrees. We were lucky to pop
in on a day when they were serving Watermelon
Basil Gazpacho, and we’re still smiling about a
mid-June meal of Shrimp Scampi with a glass of
Domaine Laroque Chardonnay.

Nestled in the heart of New Washington, The
1894 Lodge bills itself as a neighborhood bar
and grill, but it’s so much more. Opt for a formal
dining experience and you’ll be seated in the
main dining room with its exposed brick and
original floors. Relax and unwind in the lounge
area. Belly up to the bar, which is made from
reclaimed local wood. Or order to-go. You can’t
go wrong. Must Try: The 1894 Burger with the
Gouda Mac is a sure winner. Or try the chef’s
specials. But whatever you do, be sure to save
room for the Candied Bacon and Eggs.

Fans of The Chicken House were thrilled when it reopened under
new ownership and newbies are realizing just why this eatery is
legendary and a destination point for people coming from near
and far. There are a ton of options, but may we suggest the chicken?
Pro Tip: Call ahead for a reservation or to place a to-go order. This is NOT a
fast food place, which is exactly why we love it.
