On an unassuming corner of the Burnside corridor, Screendoor looks more like a dining hall than your average restaurant. However, within this unassuming space, you'll find a foodies take on the best of southern cooking, leaving the Cajun seasoning to other restaurants. The mid-priced menu always includes fresh, local ingredients with familiar sides, such as cheesy grits with the artisan cheese of the day. Signature drinks from the full bar are delivered by a friendly and fast staff. Check out weekend brunches to sample the pecan praline bacon, and enjoy the patio during the dry summer months.
