Barbara Jean Restaurant Review

: At Barbara Jean, chef Jason Fullilove offers elevated modern soul food with a focus on the roots of African American cooking. Dishes range from lime pickled shrimp and wood roast mussels, to braised lamb belly with saffron poached apple and warm buttermilk tart. The restaurant is found on the back patio of Melrose Umbrella Co., so expect stellar cocktails too.
