The menu at this new Bethesda bar and grill is all over the map—Thai mussels, Korean barbecue beef, French onion soup, beer-battered fish and chips. Go for classic comfort fare or anything Southern and you’ll come away happy. Crisp fried green tomatoes are scattered with feta and ribbons of rémoulade; a rich bayou stew is full of plump scallops, shrimp, and crawfish; meatball sliders are messy and flavorful; and a miniature sweet-potato pie with vanilla-bean ice cream is nearly as good as the stellar sweet-potato fries.
