Redd’s in Rozzie

We’re tempted to call what Redd’s does “home cooking,” but given that this version of comfort food would require an apprenticeship at a southern barbecue joint, the ability to break down an entire pig, and a smoker in the backyard, we’re not exactly talking about our home. Redd’s nails everything, from the house-made pickle plate (try the pickled cabernet grapes) and apple mignonette-topped raw oysters to the just-about melt-in-your-mouth pulled-pork sandwich. If this is how you cook at home, we’re coming over for dinner.
