Tell the office lunch bunch they can have it all -- signature specialties, efficient service, reasonable pricing, close proximity and an elegant Midtown setting – at Livingston Restaurant + Bar in the historic Georgian Terrace Hotel. Neighbors, you, too. Classic and contemporary Southern cuisine options grace executive chef Mark Breault’s fine-tuned menu at the sleek restaurant, enabling guests to quickly zero in on selections like a daily chef’s soup ($7) drawing upon locally sourced ingredients or work veggies into their day through enticing Bites & Greens of burrata roasted peppers, taproot salad or succotash salad ($10-$14); add chicken, shrimp for steak for $5.
Sandwiches of smoked trout salad with brie on ciabatta, the eight-ounce Mims burger with blue goat cheese and red wine balsamic-braised onions; veggie on French bâtard; grilled, local Cajun andouille with remoulade and pepper relish; or grilled, blackened chicken and pimento cheese on a buttermilk biscuit all come with a choice of fries, house salad, house chips or soup ($10-$12). Fried chicken paillard, butternut squash agnolotti, risotto cake shrimp, house-smoked BBQ pork shoulder with grits and greens and a seasonal vegetable plate handle hearty appetites ($12-$16).
Peppermint brittle candy sundae with mint and chocolate chip gelato, Fuji apple praline pecan bar pie and Nutella and Oreo Mississippi mud pie sweeten the afternoon ($7).
