"Lunch Counter 2.0" – ‘sipp Sourced with Chef Nick Wallace

Thursday, July 20 - Saturday, July 22, 2017

Lunch 11 AM – 2 PM; dinner Third Thursday night, 5:30 PM until

This month, Chef Nick Wallace reclaims the symbolism of the 1960s Southern lunch counter and honors the courage of homegrown activists, like Mississippian Dorie Ladner (Ladner was arrested while fighting to integrate the Woolworth's lunch counter in Jackson in 1963). Lunch Counter 2.0 reimagines short-order diner classics with a modern twist and a side helping of history, and invites diners of all backgrounds to share a common table.
