Kingfisher Summer Road Trip Ends With Down South Menu

The Kingfisher Summer Road Trip is coming to a close with a mouth-watering southern menu that will stick to your ribs.

Chef Fred Harris is to blame for the indulgent Down South menu, and he did not take the responsibility lightly. Perhaps “deep South” would have been a more appropriate title, with slow-cooked classics like Fried Oyster Po BoyChicken & Andouille Gumbo, and Creole Shrimp & Grits with Voodoo Lager.

Keep in mind Chef Marianne Bane’s Coconut Buttermilk Pie and Brown Sugar Pound Cake with bourbon-glazed grilled peaches, which will certainly be worth saving room for.

Three unique cocktails round out the feast, each created by bartender Eric Smith. The Turkey Shoot, Pecan Dandy and caffeinated King Alfonse on Fire are each crafted to complement the rich dishes.
