Cast as an "urban homestead" by its creators, this drawcard Newtown shopfront smacks more of a revivalist hall for southern fried finger-lickin' - and not just chicken. Folks, step right in to this high-decibel, hickory smoke-infused canteen-style space replete with front bar, topographic Kansas map frieze and recycled timber and iron pipe tables. Utilitarian USA sets the tone for your meal at this all-American nose-to-tail diner, boasting oyster po'boys (aka oyster muffin sliders), Colonel-challenging crisp fried chicken, and shredded pig's tail frikandels with DIY slurps of house hot sauce. Local denizens swap currency-trade tales gnawing on mustardy barbecue lamb ribs and nibbling balls of duck rillettes, lubricated with a Pisco Punch cocktail. All that's missing is the zydeco band. Compensate with the day's prone-plated soft-cone ice-cream or another glass from the idiosyncratic "bio" focus wine selection.
