After working on something over and over again that you really care about though, it’s often a sacrifice to get rid of how great Lauren my server was or the tarmac black cup of coffee that Sean drank during his interview. Those little details (I’ve been really fixiated on the little things) give such a full picture to what that place is about: Southern traditions, Southern service, and most importantly, Southern FOOD.
