Shared meals: one of the few things that remains wholesome and comforting among households through COVID, even though they’re typically only being enjoyed in our own dining rooms (or backyards, living rooms… even bedrooms, we don’t judge.) Food and drink are quintessential for bringing people together – a shared joy through some handcrafted goodness.
In a time of stress and uncertainty, sometimes all we need is a meal that gives the feeling of a familiar, friendly hug while also nourishing our bodies in ways that fast-food convenience can’t. Stomping Ground’s winter take-home dinners aim to be that source of comfort and familiarity for you. We’re serving up meals that suit your fancy, be it a chilly-weather pairing, steakhouse favorites, or just some darn good fried chicken. Come say hi with our special pandemic-friendly pick-up and grab a meal to share with your loved ones – whether together or from a distance.
Sherry braised short ribs with lemony breadcrumbs, served with harissa sweet potato and pear biscuit bread pudding with apple cider caramel. The ultimate cold night comfort.
A pork burger with pimento cheese, greens, red onion, bread and butter pickles, and Dijon on a potato roll, served with fries and a triple chocolate cookie.
Big ass wedge salad with bacon, feta, egg, creamy garlic buttermilk dressing, and everything bagel spice, served with chicken tortilla soup and figgy brown butter bar.
To know it is to love it. Our classic fried chicken served with a biscuit, beans, Gouda grits, and brown butter Rice Krispie treat.
If you wander down Del Ray’s, “The Avenue,” you won’t miss the farm-red building with a rustic fence bordering the patio. Stomping Ground opened two years ago and quickly became popular for its made-from-scratch biscuits and its neighborhood vibe. On weekends, excited guests line up before Stomping Ground opens hoping to be the first to get a just-out-of-the-oven biscuit or a fresh salad. Stomping Ground is mostly known for its fast casual breakfast and lunch but on Thursdays and Fridays they provide a full dinner service after 5:00pm. All meals are built from local, seasonal food that is organic whenever possible.
