The Standard Pour’s executive chef, Cody Sharp, plans to release his dinner menu on Monday, March 23rd coinciding with the new bar menu created by bar manager, Brian McCullough.
Sharp, who took over The Standard Pour kitchen in the summer of 2014, has created a menu he says is finally his own.

I didn’t know what I really wanted to do with the new menu until I traveled and started to learn about this type of southern cuisine.” Continue reading →
