No matter how much you love fusion food, the amount of it in this town right now (a profusion) is enough to make your head spin (in confusion).
Get back to basics at The Standard, the latest bar concept by Anton Uys, Marc Brennan, and Chris Johnson — they’re affiliated with go-to neighborhood spots Universal Joint and Steinbeck’s Oyster Bar.
There, feel free to settle your tum with casual fare: pretzel bread dipped in spicy mustard, one of any twelve beers on tap, and entrees like Jack Daniel’s flank steak atop grit cakes and red beans and rice.
After that, quell your social appetite in the Wi-Fied coffee house-style lounge, among the multiple hanging flat-screens, or on the back patio overlooking the city’s skyline.
All places to watch your stress vanish away.
In a veritable diffusion.
The Standard, 327 Memorial Drive, Grant Park (404-681-3344).
