Chef-owner Justin Brunson spent months working with a dream squad of cooks and chefs, bartenders and wine geeks to put together Old Major, the restaurant he opened in Highland in late February 2013. And diners immediately went hog-wild for the place named after the old pig in Animal Farm. Old Major is dedicated to “seafood, swine and wine,” according to the menu, and strives to be a confluence of unassailable “elevated farmhouse” cuisine (with gorgeous compositions to match), served in a striking setting that's neither too pretentious nor too casual. The menu, executed in a showstopping open kitchen with some of the most enviable equipment you've ever laid eyes on, includes artistically astounding dishes -– and the bar creates cocktails that are the perfect accompaniments. Tables can be tough to come by, but if you’re lucky, you can snag a seat in the bar, where the atmosphere is a little more casual and you can chat with the knowledgeable, friendly bartenders.
