Southern plates eatery Pawpaw continues towards a fall opening on East Bay Street. Renovations continue on the former Wet Willie’s space, while the kitchen massages the menu. A recent preview dinner for Pawpaw showed off fried chicken, a Millionaire’s Cut steak, North Carolina wines, spinach agnolotti with Mississippi short rib, beignets with key lime custard, and plenty of traditional Southern sides.
To keep interest going, the team from Pawpaw continues to tease food porn on its Instagram account, like the latest “fluffiest hush puppies you’ll ever taste.” The restaurant also shows off the staff in the new uniforms.
We’re keeping an eye out for an opening date, but it shouldn’t be before too long.
