Locally sourced coffee and globally influenced cuisine make for a delicious breakfast combination at French & Southern. The fusion restaurant recently opened in the Hyatt in Old Town. The head chef combines different elements of cooking from France and the American South to create a totally new type of cuisine.
Its eclectic breakfast menu is the perfect example of the fusion. It encompasses dishes like the American breakfast, a combo of eggs, breakfast meat, and potatoes, as well as the quiche Lorraine with ham and gruyere cheese. Complement your chosen dish with a cup of joe from Alexandria’s Swings Coffee. Later in the day, pair an artisan cocktail with a few appetizers like the fried oysters or salt-roasted beets, or dig right into the main course with a dish like the culotte steak frites or red roasted chicken.
