Chef Todd Duplechan’s South First Street restaurant is the first place in town to solely offer a fixed-price, three-course menu. It's quite a steal for $38, but the innovation continues with the food itself. The chef takes note of “global connections” to create fusion food from hot-weather climates that spans Southeast Asia, the Southern U.S., France, Italy and more. That means plenty of fish cakes, sour sausage and more, all with a twist. Duplechan told us that the original concept was to offer a set menu every day, with no choices, but that his wife, co-owner and pastry chef Jessica Maher, talked him out of it. For that original experience, try the Sunday four-course set-menu dinner.
How to Order: Pick three courses from any of the four different categories: field, sea, land and dream (aka sweets). If it's too hard to narrow down all of those delicious-sounding options, you can order extra courses for $10 each.
