  • Last year's Down South menu had a fried green tomato sandwich. This year, the tomatoes are coming back.

Starting today, Kingfisher Bar and Grill (2564 E. Grant Road) is going to be serving up Southern fare as the final stop on their summer Road Trip menu series. Of course, since it's Kingfisher, the menu highlights the best Southern seafood options with a distinct focus on Cajun and Creole cuisines.

Chef Fred Harris designed the "Down South" menu with offerings like a fried oyster po boy, fried green tomatoes and blackened catfish with a Tabasco aioli. Chef Marianne Bane contributed two desserts—coconut buttermilk pie and brown sugar pound cake—to the menu, while bartender Eric Smith is offering three cocktails to pair with dinner. The menu items are priced a la carte and range from $7 to $27.

You can stop into Kingfisher anytime between now and Sunday, Sept. 6 to try the limited time "Down South" menu. Reservations and more information are available by calling 323-7739.
