The inside of Southern Proper is covered in pine. North Carolina is one of the largest producers of pine in the country, and Chef/Owner Jason Cheek grew up around it. He wanted to make it like a barn on the interior.
The space reflects Jason’s heritage. Photos of his grandparents hang by the front door and on the surrounding, floral wallpapered walls.
Beautiful, antique lamps hang upside down from the exposed wooden beams.
Take a seat at the bar, and if there’s not room, gather around a parlor table and snack on some locally sourced bar bites.
The Deviled Eggs or Popovers with Pimento cheese are a classic southern starter.
The roasted cauliflower is a vegan dish. We’re getting beautiful Romanesco right now and we try to keep that as light as possible. Heavy on the spice, really fresh lemon vinaigrette that we preserve the lemons in house to do.
The Fried Chicken is without a doubt the most popular dish on the menu. Insider tip – the gluten free version is just as tasty as the original. Try it with a side of Mac or the Ash-Roasted Sweet potatoes.
The bar program offers unique cocktails for every drinker. You won’t want to pass up on these.
