Fairsted Kitchen’s Andrew Foster, Steve Bowman, and Alex Homans  upcoming Southern concept, The Frogmore, has unveiled its new logo and dinner menu today. Crafted by South Carolina-native, Jason Albus, the Jamaica Plain restaurant will focus on classic Lowcountry cooking like pickled shrimp and smoked oysters; Hoppin’ John with black-eyed peas and Carolina Gold rice; she crab soup; char-grilled pork chops with pickled peaches; and desserts like a sorghum cake layered with cocoa nibs and bourbon pecan brittle.

The Frogmore’s logo and interior have been designed to further evoke the feel of the South, most notably with that universal symbol of hospitality seen all over historic Charleston, the pineapple. Other touches include galvanized planters with ferns hanging from the ceiling, live plants lining the bar, and two-tone pineapple wallpaper covering the walls of the dining room. Located at 365 Centre Street, the restaurant is built on the site of a former Catholic church.
