Southern restaurants are all the rage right now, and Ida Claire steps into the fray with her version of shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles and jalapeño mac and cheese. With a charming dining room, this latest restaurant from Fork It Over Restaurants (Whiskey Cake, Twin Peaks) seeks to charm diners with her looks, but the food only occasionally backs up her charm. Stick to the shrimp and grits, the oyster po’ boy and the burger if you want to play it safe, and skip dessert entirely. Don’t miss the front patio, complete with an Airstream trailer turned into outdoor seating. It’s all so very charming.
