The folks from Seersucker, that haven of Southern comfort food, opened a café just down Smith Street earlier this year. While fried chicken is the thing to order at the restaurant, another bird has guests of the take-out shop talking: the oven-roasted turkey. It's served on a croissant sprinkled with poppy and sesame seeds, "everything" bagel-style. And then there's bacon, lettuce, and house-made sage mayo. Mmmm.
What to order: Turkey on everything croissant $9
