A new restaurant specializing in Southern food is set to open soon on West Central.

It will be a full-service restaurant, Chaudhry said, with a menu that includes things like catfish, shrimp, fried green tomatoes, fried pickles and Po’ Boy sandwiches. Customers also can get crab cakes, fish platters, chicken wings and fried oysters.
