Cooking is a serious business in the South

In the 1950’s many Appalachian families moved to Michigan seeking work in the auto industry. It’s a familiar story to many people with roots in the American South, and we strive to tell part of this story through our meals.

Cooking is a serious business in the South and the traditional flavor resides within the relocated sons and daughters that now call Michigan home. The Southerner hopes to keep that tradition alive for generations to come. Don’t forget to check out our “Nashville Hot” fried chicken, if you can handle the heat!

Near and far, those who provide us with our amazing ingredients do so with love and admiration for their product. We order from them for one reason – we believe they are the best. We don’t intend to keep them a secret either. Feel free to browse and use them in your dishes at home.

Sometimes people take note of exceptional cooking. It didn’t take long for our chef, Matthew Millar, to gain some notoriety around town and nationwide. Recognition from the James Beard Foundation is something that we are extremely proud of and we are honored to have Matt in our kitchen.
