Chef Sharon Lorraine Anderson calls her approach “comfort food without borders,” which is the idea that even while the foods people find comforting — that remind them of Grandma’s cooking or of their hometown — are culturally specific, there’s no reason that Persian-style chicken wings and Italian-American lasagna shouldn’t coexist at one restaurant. Still, the heart and soul of Anderson’s restaurant, Next Door, still lie in the traditional dishes of the American South: Complimentary cornbread arrives at the table warm and only slightly sweet at the crisp edges. A thick cider-brined pork chop — nicely charred and served in a pool of its own jus — comes with stewed greens and airy, decadent mashed sweet potatoes. The menu also features buttermilk fried chicken, creamy grits, and, best of all, a smooth, showstopping Butterscotch custard that’s topped with candied pecans and an intensely caramel-y salted caramel sauce.
