Remedy, a neighborhood restaurant/bar created by Elias Pope (owner, HG Sply Co.) is ready to open for dinner service at 5pm, this Friday night January 2nd. Lunch service will begin mid-month.

Owner Elias Pope says, “At Remedy, we believe in bringing old school hospitality back to life. Beginning as early as the 1600s, medicine men and alchemists in the United States looked to natural sparkling water to cure illness “Health by Soda”. After the civil war people began to open soda fountains, where pharmacists would dispense your medicine in soda waters flavored with syrups to make them more palatable. During prohibition, people turned from the saloon to the soda fountain.

Though people initially visited soda fountains as a remedy to what ailed them, they stayed for the company. Soda Fountains are the first completely American dining experience, a community where men, women, and children all felt welcomed. It was here they sought and often found the remedy they were seeking, whether it was a thoughtfully crafted soda, an inventive ice cream sundae, or a friend to laugh with. Remedy is our modern version of that tradition.”   Continue reading

danyele

Remedy, created by Elias Pope (owner of HG Sply Co.) is a neighborhood restaurant/bar that will serve chef created American cuisine. Opening late November/early December of this year at 2010b Greenville Ave, chef Danyele McPherson will serve as executive chef with Guillermo “GMO” Tristan serving as executive pastry chef. They are teaming up to bring a menu that is all about ‘back to basics’ but with polished technique.

McPherson says, “ This is food everyone has eaten before – the idea is not completely foreign – you have a memory of eating it as a child. We are taking familiar and simple ideas and executing them at what we hope is the highest level possible. We want to take these familiar food items and turn them into refined dishes. Remedy is not about sourcing exotic ingredients, it’s about sourcing the best ingredients possible and making the best fish sandwich, BLT, grilled cheese, pork chop, pot pie etc that we possibly can. The menu is inspired by food my mom would make when I was growing up. We will also be serving a rotation of vegetarian dishes. It’s important to me that there be something for everyone at Remedy.”

Why John Tesar Should Be Voted Back On Top Chef

tesar1 002by Steven Doyle

I do not normally report on the whole Top Chef thing, we always assume our readers are out dining or sipping an amazing tequila, or hob knobbing with a few local bands on their day off. At least that is how I envision you all. However, this season has been particularly interesting with the addition of three talented local chefs.

Be there no doubt that I was all upset when Danyele McPherson from The Grape took her leave from the show just weeks ago. Danyele is talented, perky and a whole lot of fun. I met her first working with McCallister back at Stephan Pyles, and instantly took to her radiant personality. She is a class act and Top Chef could use a few more Danyele’s.   Continue reading
