If you’re not a Super Bowl winning quarterback with a super model wife, it’s tough to afford a place on Comm Ave. Go to Buttermilk and Bourbon, though, and you can at least pretend you live there. It’s a Southern spot with a sunken patio on the corner of Comm Ave and Dartmouth, and it’s a great option for brunch (get the potato latkes).
