The hunt for the best burger is never ending, and most usually pleasurable. The latest burger sampling was this past weekend at Remedy, that wonderful new restaurant on lower Greenville Avenue, next to its sister restaurant, HG Sply. Besides having a fantastic cocktail program, Remedy makes one of the best renditions of fried chicken in this city. Seriously, Confit Amish Fried Chicken? Yes, it is spectacular. Yesterday was our first chance to taste the burger, which I have been hearing so much about. The taste definitely lived up to the hype. Continue reading

Good Morning USA! It is National Pie Day and we want to celebrate with you all day by offering up a slice or two for you to enjoy.

Here are some of our favorites in no particular order. Continue reading
Remedy, a neighborhood restaurant/bar created by Elias Pope that recently opened for dinner-only on Friday, January 2nd, is adding lunch service beginning today. Lunch will be served daily from 11am to 2:30pm, with an abbreviated afternoon menu served from 2:30pm – 5:30pm. Pope says, “ “The lunch menu came first when we were developing the concept. We knew right off the bat that we wanted lunch to feel very different than dinner. We also wanted to serve a simple killer brunch everyday. We focused on everything from the soundtrack, the lighting, to the placemat menus and the way the bar was designed to achieve our goal. Continue reading

When the concept of Remedy was first suggested to me I was told it is a bit of Southern cooking like your mother might make. Now my mother was a fantastic cook, and we come from a restaurant family. My grandmother was an amazing cook, and this cuisine is a lot like what she might make; if my grandmother even knew what the word confit meant she might be able to duplicate the Remedy chicken. Not to take anything away from my family matriarch, but executive chef Danyele McPherson is pretty splendid in her kitchen.
First let’s get the best thing on the menu out of the way. Confit Amish Fried Chicken is something you definitely want to try first. Not only tender, but juicy with a crust that holds tight to the bird, and is seasoned with a deft hand and a keen eye. For this dish alone I want to hug and hold tight to our favorite cooking ginger, Danyele. I think I did. I forget the words to the teary-eyed speech, but that is not important. Continue reading
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
