      This industrial-chic restaurant would be as much at home in Brooklyn or San Francisco as here in Dalton. Its modern British cuisine is two steps above classic comfort food, and it is excellent. Expect unique combinations like lamb belly cooked perfectly and plated on a wonderfully silky eggplant puree with a touch of freshness from charred spring onions and radishes. Don’t skip dessert, either: There’s a genius salted caramel doughnut with “popcorn” sugar and clotted cream ice cream. Just be sure to make reservations in advance; this place is a hit among locals and out-of-towners alike.
