Bacon-for-More-smallBetween the inconspicuous pig statuettes overlooking the restaurant floor and the signature dessert (chocolate-dipped bacon s’mores), bacon becomes the guest of honor at Beckett’s Table. Even the sumptuous “B” Burger is ambiguously abbreviated: Does the “B” stand for (chef Justin) Beckett or the bacon, which offers a salty, crispy complement to the juicy patty? When lighter fare beckons, don’t be afraid to explore the full range of entrees, including a steamed white bass that satisfies but won’t leave you feeling stuffed. Beckett’s orders its food locally and keeps its menu American, with such inventive twists as grits or mac ‘n cheese as appetizers, and Nutella pudding for dessert. Reservations recommended.
