Big Jones is part of the restaurant renaissance in the wonderfully funky Andersonville. The food is described as "Coastal Southern" and it is all of that and more. The chef/owner is a "locavore," sourcing seasonal ingredients from as close by as he can. Everything is totally tasty and well presented. It's going to get harder to get in now at the Chicago Tribune has given it 3 stars.
Our party shared a plate of corn-battered deep-fried green tomatoes with a spicy remoulade and a few well-scattered shrimp. Then we had the following:
Eggs New Orleans: Lump crab cakes on fresh popovers with poached eggs, béarnaise sauce, and potatoes O'Brien
Sally Lunn French Toast: Homemade Southern Sally Lunn bread, candied pecans, blueberries, whipped organic cream
Carolina Pulled Pork: Pasture-raised pork shoulder in a vinaigrette sauce with chow-chow slaw on a homestyle roll
We started with a plate of warm powdered sugar-dusted beignets.
Favorite Dish: Everything on the menu?
I'd have to say the fried green tomatoes and the opening beignets.
