"South" restaurant in Raleigh's North Hills

Did anyone see Greg Cox's blurb today about South, the restaurant that took Savannah's place at North Hills? Although the restaurant group has an impressive track record the reported menu items left me feeling a bit, well, odd, almost as if Wolfgang Puck had decided to do his "interpretation" of a Down East meat & threes.

"First course options include fried green tomatoes and okra (why hasn't someone thought of that combination before?), pimento cheese beignets, deviled eggs and Virginia peanut soup. Entrees cover the spectrum from fried chicken to carpetbagger steak, with a varied assortment including shrimp and grits, Frogmore stew and country-fried steak with peppered gravy in between. Just be sure to save room for coconut cream pie or warm Cheerwine pound cake or (I think I hear Elvis stirring) peanut butter and banana Monte Cristo."

Has anyone been there, heard anything, or know anything more?
