PHOTOS: New Evening Star Cafe Chef's Revamped Menu Has Southern Flair

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- A lot has changed at The Evening Star Cafe in Del Ray since it closed last October for a massive renovation. The place now has a new look, a new menu and a new chef.

Georgia native and new executive chef Jim Jeffords has put a decidedly Southern spin on the eatery's new dishes, and HuffPost was fortunate enough to try some of them out. The restaurant also recently rolled out a new brunch menu on Jan. 29, and the cocktails are all new as well.
