Seersucker Brings Southern Eats to Carroll Gardens Next Week

New, 8 comments

[Horine, 5/20/10]

Serving what its chef Robert Newton calls "cleaned up Southern" fare, the small, spare Seersucker restaurant opens in Carroll Gardens next Tuesday. He's making classics from his native Arkansas like shrimp and grits, chicken and dumplings, fried catfish, and molasses-glazed pork shoulder, but with a lighter hand to appease the New York clientele—a far cry from what he did at Le Cirque, Tabla, and Aquavit.

The wine list is also All-American, the sourcing is local as possible, and resys are only taken for parties of six or more (the place only seats 40). Newton's partner Kerry Diamond tells Eater they'll start with dinner and will soon expand into breakfast and lunch.
