A new Southern-inspired eatery and bar, Bread -N- Butter opened its doors in Uptown last night at 1612 E. 17th Avenue. The space, which previously housed the ten year old Limon, got a full makeover from the bar to the paint and furniture. The rustic chic decor is complete with natural wood colors, recycled beams, pine tree shelving, reclaimed barn wood, as well as fun lighting fixtures crafted from old bottles of bourbon.
On the menu, separated into small plates, salads, mains, and sides, guests will find classics like fried spicy pickles, buttermilk hush puppies, shrimp and grits, and jalapeno corn bread. This gastro-Southern American spot is committed to making everything from the pickles to the ketchup from scratch in house and it promises a killer fried chicken. To complement the food, there is a well-edited selection of cocktails, wine, and beer, as well as a curated selection of whiskey and bourbon.
Bread -N- Butter will be open daily from 4 p.m. A happy hour featuring $5 menu items and well drinks plus wines by the glass will be offered until 6 p.m. The kitchen will stay open until 11 p.m. on weekdays and midnight on Friday and Saturday.
Neighboring venue Next Door Lounge, owned by the same partners, restaurateur Alex Gurevich and managing partner Larry Lane, recently revamped its food menu and promises it perfected the two classics of a modern neighborhood dive, the burger and the chicken wings, both of which come in several variations.
