Pasture Restaurant Review

: Adhering to the farm-supporting, Southern-respecting ethos of co-owners Michele Johnson and chef Jason Alley (also of Comfort), Pasture sports a cool, urban-barn aesthetic. Dinner’s menu runs the gamut from snacks (including pimento cheese and Ritz crackers, and black-eyed pea falafel) to small plates (perhaps marinated Gulf shrimp with pickled watermelon rind) to entrées (“Country Captain,” a half roasted chicken and tomato/curry gravy, for one, or pan-roasted pork chop with cheddar and scallion spoonbread, green beans and birch beer barbecue). Bite into the burger at lunch or dinner, an upscale, grown-up Big Mac. Among side choices, pick broccoli with sunflower seeds and chilies. And don’t miss the “candy bar” for dessert. A bullion of chocolate ganache and homemade peanut butter with crunchy pretzel brittle, it’s a new millennium “Whatchamacallit.” Like all of Pasture’s food, it’s not intimidating or self-aggrandizing, simply focused on quality ingredients prepared with skilled technique. And speaking of skilled, so is the friendly service.
