Seersucker is splitting the difference deliciously between local and southern. Chef Robert Newton is sourcing from upstate farmers, the Carroll Gardens farmers' market across the street, and local producers like Blue Marble Ice Cream, Red Hook Winery and Sixpoint Craft Ales, but his cuisine is inspired by the American South—Stoneground Grits Spoonbread, Crispy Pig's Foot, Fried Bologna Sandwich, Pork Belly and Collard Greens, scratch biscuits. They're making as much from scratch as possible—the potato chips, mayo, even the pimento cheese—and are extending the season on local produce by pickling it in-house. The beverage list is all-American, but don't look for Coke or Pepsi—the sparkling water, house-filtered and house-sparkled, will soon be the basis of homemade sodas. Don't miss the fried peach pie.
