Southern National: A first look at Mobile's most talked-about new restaurant
Chef Duane Nutter and restaurateur Reggie Washington of Atlanta's renowned One Flew South at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport have relocated to Mobile to open Southern National at 360 Dauphin St. in downtown Mobile.
Southern National will offer local Gulf seafood, craft cocktails and "a globally inspired culinary menu that pays homage to authentic Southern cuisine," according to a news release. Smith Hanes Studio in Atlanta designed the 3,600-square-foot space on the ground level of the restored historic Wilkins-Higgins building across from the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. The restaurant will seat approximately 150 guests, including a New Orleans-style courtyard that seats 68.
