With its modern take on homespun classics in a space filled with sophisticated muted colors, wood-grain tabletops, and a mirror-tiled bar, Pawpaw restaurant is as chic as it is flavorful. The food is at once familiar and provocative, with a buttermilk biscuit appetizer that is sure to become the yardstick by which all future pimento cheese efforts are measured. Other standouts include crisp and seductive free-range recipe #88 fried chicken, the superlative crispy blue crab bites and the charred, yet luscious market catch fish. Don’t overlook the restaurant’s evocative cocktail menu, particularly the flamboyant “Why Haven’t I Met Bill Murray?,” billed as a smoked old fashioned. Served literally smoking, it smells like camping, with woodsy, nostalgic flavors and a finish reminiscent of a gourmet s’more. —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Summer 2018)
