Nan and Byron's Restaurant Review: Located in the old Vinnie’s Raw Bar location in historic South End, Nan and Byron’s serves up Americana-inspired classics in a farmhouse-chic setting. A full renovation inside exposes Edison bulbs and barn-wood tables, which offer up a prairie-home effect. And the food is just like Mom’s, only fancier. Chef Jamie Lynch’s menu ranges from flavor-filled deviled eggs to traditional meatloaf with a bit of a twist: it’s slow-cooked and served with sriracha ketchup. Picky eaters, note that entrées are served atop accompanying sides (think mac ‘n’ cheese, peas and carrots, and sweet potato fries) and often touch, so some pairings don’t work as well as others. House-made peanut butter ice cream on a hot fudge brownie is the signature dessert. The wine list is rather limited, and most options are California generic, but the beer list offers more interesting quaffs. On the cocktail menu, you’ll find concoctions such as the tangy farmhouse lemonade, a mix of Bacardi Limon, strawberry vodka, limoncello, citrus juices, muddled fresh strawberries and lemon.
