I found this gem on a recent trip. kybecca started life as a wine place, and over the years has evolved into a full restaurant with a killer wine list and solid bar program. I had some fantastic drinks and good conversation thanks to Calvin, a great bartender. And I had some very good shrimp and grits- not as good as mine, of course, but very good indeed. (For reference: the recipe for mine starts with 24 ounces of smoked uncured bacon, and ends hours later with two pounds of wild-caught shrimp).
I sat at the bar as I often do when traveling, my fellow barflies all seemed to enjoy their food and drink as well. Worth the trip if you are in the area. And say hi to Calvin for me, he’s a master at his craft.
And in the morning, head over to Hyperion Espresso for some great coffee and morning munchies- and a little local chatter. It is just a block down the road from kybecca. You will really appreciate Hyperion if you enjoyed a few more cocktails than you planned at kybecca and didn’t stay well hydrated. So I’ve heard.
