South + Pine, Morristown

So annoyed it took us so long to get to this absolute gem next to the Morristown Performing Arts Center. Went last night, going back tomorrow. Leia, chef /owner and her crew handled the pre-show dinner crowd with a focused intensity that was almost as theatrical as whatever was playing next door and delivered an intensely satisfying meal. A perfectly savory and crispy polenta cake with burrata and a pork belly appetizer both light and hearty started if off, and then were followed by the best velvety hanger steak I’ve ever had. The place was crowded, but the on point cheerful service kept everything pleasant and moving like a well oiled machine. Fantastic addition to the Mo’town scene.
