1111 Mississippi Restaurant Review

: Dedication to fresh ingredients and sustainability isn’t just a tagline for owners Paul and Wendy Hamilton. For example, 1111 grows vegetables in-house most of the year; their nearby building housing Vin de Set installed solar panels on the roof. Though it’s known for offering game --- the braised rabbit with wild rice pilaf and wild boar ravioli are longtime favorites --- the chefs get equally creative with vegetarian dishes like mushrooms with polenta and artichokes or oven-baked flatbread with poached pear, figs and Gorgonzola. The dessert menu’s centerpiece is gooey butter cake, a local concoction that’s perfect with a tall glass of milk to cut the rich sweetness. The wine list has a wide-ranging selection of old- and new-world choices.
