Here's a look inside the now-finished Dixie, from chef-owner Joseph Humphrey (Meadowood, Cavallo Point) opening Tuesday, May 29. Designer Michael Brennan (Zero Zero, Jardiniere, Chandon) remade the former Press A Vi spot, trying to make the expansive space, with the potential to fit 300 people, seem more segmented and approachable. Art on the walls brings in Southern charm— made from musical instruments and old rocking chairs. In the gallery above, a large, windowed veranda room has walls softly painted to resemble Southern birch trees. You'll see there has been quite a transformation since we last visited Dixie. Glowing lighting fixtures and warm sconces have been installed. Banquettes have been brought in, and finishing polishes are smoothed out.

At the opening party Wednesday night, old-time friends George Morrone and Ravi Kapur got chummy congratulating Joseph while appetizers passed by. Party-goers snacked on Southern fare like smoked country ham, pork ribs, deviled eggs, pork cracklins, and hush puppies.

Dixie's lunch hours will be 11:30 a.m.— 2:30 p.m. Monday— Friday; Dinner service from 5:30 p.m.— 10 Sunday through Thursday, 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
