Two New to Try
Fontaine’s Southern Diner & Bar, a new kid on the block, is housed in a former gas station serving down-home comfort food. Buttermilk biscuits and gravy and fluffy Johnny Cakes with the option to add foie gras to fried bologna sandwiches (say what?) and mouth-watering burgers, the specialties are surprising. While admiring wallpaper created from old family recipes from the restaurant’s owner, go ahead and belly up to the handsome bar for a house cocktail made with gin, elderflower- and lavender-infused The Bee Sneeze that’s topped with lovely flowers. Tasty awaits at 906 Elmira St.
Sip a cool one on St. Mary’s Strip at Little Death, the newest wine bar to join the strip. Also, housed in a former gas station at 2327 N. St. Mary’s St, serves wines from around the globe. And make sure you rest your backside on the patio on a picnic bench with backs.
Old Favorite Back
