4 Reasons We Can’t Get Enough of Southern Table

1. They’re All About That #BirdLife

Glance around the room, and you might notice some of the runners at Southern Table are wearing #BirdLife shirts. They, like us, are here for the fried chicken. “The most important thing is that you use high-quality chicken,” says co-owner Mike Ferrara, who also co-owns nearby Wood & Fire. Breasts, thighs, and drumsticks from Goffle Road Poultry Farm are brined for two days in a mix of 15 herbs and spices, dredged in seasoned cornmeal flour, rested, and fried until crisp and super-juicy.

2. Pork Fat Rules

You can’t venture south of the Mason-Dixon line without a whole lot of pork products. From the collards braised with fistfuls of onion and smoky bacon to the beer-steamed mussels packing double pork (country ham and andouille sausage), pork fat makes everything better.

3. So Does Whiskey

There are more than 125 types of whiskey and bourbon behind the bar, from NY-produced Hudson Baby Bourbon and Old Rip Van Winkle to 18-year-old Scotch. The menu also has a large selection of tequila and plenty of whiskey cocktails, from Old Fashioneds to smashes.

4. Rules Are Meant to Be Broken

Yes, the classics are classics for a reason, but Southern Table doesn’t shy away from giving dishes a new twist. Think slow-cooked chili turned into a cheesy dip, deviled eggs with hummus and roe, a kale salad with pimento-Caesar dressing, and gargantuan portions of must-order mac ’n’ cheese studded with plenty of bacon and spicy pickled jalapeños.
