The food is Southern, the staff is upbeat, the decor is arty and supports the local community. The shrimp and grits are (is?) heavenly. I wish I would order something else, but I can't pass up an opportunity to enjoy this blissful dish.

We recently went to NOFO and enjoyed it. It's kind of an eclectic, casual spot. We started with the hot pimento cheese, which was great. I had the crab cake and found it to be very good. At our table we also had the spinach...More
