Mathews Food & Drink
The menu at Mathew’s is big and varied, which makes it a great place to take an indecisive friend group that can barely decide on what movie to watch, much less a restaurant for dinner. There are twists on classic Southern dishes, like fried shrimp with a homemade lemon remoulade, plus squid ink bucatini, burgers, a pimento cheese BLT, and jerk mahi mahi.
The decor is equally eclectic: there’s a palm tree wallpaper-lined bar across from the modern dining area, and the staff is a fun bunch that’ll eagerly suggest the best cocktails. Ours is the Practice What You Peach, a summery mix of whiskey, sweet tea, peach juice, and lemon.
