Southern RECONSTRUCTION Cooking?
Tongue-in-cheek, it means we've tweaked tradition for a healthier take on Southern cuisine. No engineered processing--we cut our vegetables by hand; smoke our briskets and pork; bake our cornbread, biscuits and desserts and slow cook our beans and greens. It's the closest you'll come to home cooked without taking off your shoes at Grandma's.
Traditions we've kept at Wishbone include choosing your own fresh sides with a main dish and a casual hospitality that favors friendliness. This is the progressive South we grew up with in North Carolina, but there's some Louisiana, Low Country, Piedmont and Soul to round things out.
We offer specials every day for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch and have many gluten free and vegan dishes to make all our friends happy. There's also plenty of catfish, yardbird, premium hickory bacon, grits and corn cakes to answer any comfort food crave.
Even more remarkably, we've been offering made-from-scratch food at diner prices for 30 YEARS!--catering to families, gays, tattoo artists, musicians, community activists and business networks--of all ages, color and income. (Creeds are expected to have humor or be checked at the door!)
Come taste the South at Wishbone (CURRENTLY ONLY ON JEFFERSON STREET) or with our Catering whereever you may be.
. . . We aren't just preaching peas and hominy to Yankees: Food and art go together.
