A new Southern-style restaurant and bar will make a home for itself in Lynnfield at the bustling MarketStreet complex, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. Fat Biscuit Southern Table + Taps is bursting into the New England restaurant world with not just the 335 Market St. location but with a spot in North Conway, NH as well.
The self-described "Southern inspired" restaurant will serve scratch-made biscuits and craft beers, according to its Facebook page, and it will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The North Conway location is set to open on August 1, and Lynnfield will likely open in mid-November, according to Dale Broach, who is in charge of operations for the restaurant. Fat Biscuit is currently hiring employees and looking to fill the positions of cashiers, bartenders, runners, bakers, cooks, and dishwashers.
The menu makes ample use of the restaurant's eponymous "fat biscuits." Breakfast items include a "big south breakfast" with eggs, smoked bacon, country ham, house-made pork sausage, hash browns, and yes, a fat biscuit; a chicken and biscuit waffle; quiche; and a build-your-own omelet option; as well as hash, oats and fruit, and a Southern Benedict served on fat biscuit halves, of course.
The biscuit takes center stage again when it comes to sandwiches, including for a fried green tomato BLT, a pulled pork sandwich, and a "Deep Fried Elvis," which features a deep-fried combo of crunchy honey peanut butter, jam, bananas, and candied bacon. The restaurant will also offer salads, burgers, shrimp and grits, and sides that include cheddar spuds and sweet potato casserole, plus a handful of desserts, including biscuit s'mores.
Fat Biscuit aims to serve "true food," sourcing locally whenever possible and leaving preservatives out of the equation. The restaurant joins a list of recent Southern-style additions to the area, including Southern Kin in Somerville and The Porch Southern Fare in Wakefield.
