Concierge.com's insider take:
Magnolia's is a perfect lunchtime break when you find yourself on the tourist-heavy expanse of Bay Street. Chef Donald Barickman's cuisine has been dubbed "Uptown Down South," which seems to mean refined Southern classics served with a white-linen sensibility and a dollop of good humor on the side. His classic "Three Little Pigs" is a trio of slow-cooked barbecue pork sliders on house-baked buns with a spicy-and-sweet coleslaw on the side. The rich chive-spiked blue crab bisque is worthy of a visit all by itself.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 11:30 am to 10 pm, Sundays 11 am to 3:45 pm.
