Honey is a great little neighborhood restaurant. The small sunlit room with pale walls and horticultural drawings seats approximately 40 diners around a small central bar that embodies the spirit of a Parisian bistro when it is full, which is almost always. With liberal portions and reasonable prices, chef Shoshannah Hafner (and her husband, co-owner Doug Hafner) has created an ambitious menu of American-continental comfort food specialties, to which she adds several nightly specials. Among the best is vegetarian goetta. Yes, vegetarian goetta. Try it. You won’t believe how good it is. Moist herb-roasted chicken is served with peppered grits, creamed corn, and seasonal vegetables, while rosemary mashed potatoes heady with black pepper provide a luxurious touch to braised shortribs or Creole meatloaf with Tasso gravy. Share a side of the addictive hot fries and their chili-lime-honey dipping sauce. They’ll draw you back, like, ahem, bees to Honey.
