Located at the Fairfax District Palihotel lobby, the Hart and The Hunter restaurant makes a splash as it offers Southern food served in that small-plates trend that Los Angeles diners and food enthusiasts have grown to love and enjoy. Focusing on Southern food, their biscuits are every food critic’s rave. Served hot with a dollop of pimento cheese, blackberries, and butter. If anything, no one has made biscuits in the LA area as beautifully and masterfully as this place. One notable entrée is their Shrimp and Grits. Trust me that this cheesy skillet dish will make you fall in love and make you rethink grits.
While Southern cuisine is their specialty (Southern fried chicken, smoked trout,and the likes), they do incorporate European influences into their cuisine. They’re not just doing country food, they are reinventing it with such flair and grace that only Chefs Kris Tominaga and Brian Dunsmoor can successfully execute. In addition, the ambiance is incredibly charming. Channeling Southern charm with a shabby chic vibe including distressed wood and patterned plates that come in different colors and sizes. Hart and the Hunter restaurant is a great destination for a unique Southern dining experience. They’ll surely leave you pleasantly surprised and wanting to come back for more.
