Housed in part of The Newton, Southern Rail takes the trend in mashing up fine dining with Mason-Dixon cuisine a step further. The tidy, not-overwhelming menu features dishes tarted up with sausage gravy and sides of cornbread, to be sure, but chef Justin Beckett has finessed classic American dishes with some more subtle Southern influences. A casserole of broccoli, cauliflower, and leeks offers a blissful combination of tender vegetables tossed with tender rice and bound with a creamy smoked onion sauce and sprinkled with the crunch of spiced nuts. Blackened catfish is served cioppino style, glammed up with olives and potatoes and sweet corn. The crispy duck leg confit is superb. Read our review.
