The North End★ ½


Ryan Nelson of Late Harvest Kitchen focuses on smoked meats and soulful sides at this casual dining spot, one that has all the trappings of a modern-day hootenanny (including brown paper–lined tin trays and cornbread in mini skillets). Hardcore fans of textbook Texas- and Memphis-style barbecue will find fault in some of the meats that fall just short of the regional standards. The less-tricky pulled pork is always a crowd-pleaser, though, especially when given a good squirt of housemade sauce. Cocktails, some of which mix up moonshine, are absolutely front porch–worthy. Lunch Mon.–Sat., dinner daily.
