Located in The Heights, Shade showcases a cross-cultural menu from executive chef David Luna, offering everything from Asian-inspired entrées to Southern brunch classics. Inside, the sleek dining room is designed with high ceilings, dark hardwood floors, and simple white lampshades hanging from exposed beams. However, diners often prefer to sit beneath bright green umbrellas on the narrow outdoor patio while savoring menu highlights like the fried shrimp and bacon cheese grits. The restaurant is set in a dry neighborhood, but patrons can join the Shade Club for free in order to enjoy selections from the impressive wine list.

Insider Tip:

Although not heavily advertised, Shade offers happy hour specials on drinks and appetizers every day from 2:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.
