Just steps away from Oprah’s Harpo Studios, the unfussy Wishbone is a favorite among staffers for southern-inspired fare that tends toward the lighter side: grilled or blackened fish, vegetarian hoppin’ john, and North Carolina-style pulled pork. Come for brunch, when huge platters of Dixie favorites like shrimp and grits and crawfish cakes are delivered to the simply decorated tables while the wide-open space is aroar with chicly turned out professionals from the neighborhood as well as families with young ones in tow. Fortunately, you can ease the pain of the wait and the noise with a Wishbone Spicy Bloody Mary.

Tip: You can easily make a meal of the excellent sides, like sautéed spinach, mac and cheese, and collard greens.
