Graze bills itself as a gastropub, but it’s really more of a big-city diner. The space is sleek and impressive; the food, home-style favorites (that is, if you lived at chef Tory Miller’s house). The likes of smoked paprika–dusted deviled eggs, fried chicken and waffles, pork three ways with collard greens, and mac ’n cheese (with ten-year cheddar) are comfortably familiar, yet stylishly prepared. For dessert a slice of pie du jour and hot fudge sundae with whiskey caramel and hickory nuts are equally tempting. Fortunately, there are lots of opportunities to come back—for lunch, dinner, brunch or in-between snacks.
Photo: Graze does its own take on the traditional wedge salad: iceberg lettuce, smoked mushroom, blue cheese, ranch and sesame "french" dressing make up this updated supper club classic.
