Bread-N-Butter Opens in Former Limón Space
Neighborhood Peruvian eatery Limón closed at the end of 2015, but owner Alex Gurevich didn't give up the space. Instead, he and managing partner Larry Lane converted it into a Southern eatery and whiskey bar called Bread-N-Butter, which opened on Tuesday night in Uptown.
The biggest changes to the interior are the addition of rustic wood elements and a larger bar that seats a dozen guests in front of whiskey-lined shelves. Look closely and you'll see robot-shaped light fixtures made from pipe fittings crawling among the bottles.
The menu itself represents a huge departure from the previous eatery's Novoandino cuisine. What you'll find instead is a roster of Southern-inspired fare: buttermilk hush puppies, fried-chicken bites and cheddar-cheese popovers on the "viddles" menu; po' boys, more fried chicken and shrimp 'n grits for mains; and biscuits, beans, corn bread and collards served as sides. For dessert, there's a strawberry moonshine hand pie and a red velvet cupcake.
To wash it all down, whiskey is the answer, with more than thirty bourbons and ryes originating everywhere from Kentucky and Tennessee to Colorado, Oregon and beyond. A healthy dose of Scotch whiskies rounds out the brown spirits list. House cocktails also rely heavily on whiskey, with a mint julep sweet tea and a shoofly punch, as well as such classic cocktails as a Manhattan and Vieux Carre.
Bread-N-Butter is open daily from 5 to 10 p.m.
