Southport Grocery and Cafe, a stop for haute foodstuffs and casual American dining, inhabits a former funeral home. But fear not: Any creepiness has been thoroughly exorcised by a breezy vide and food that’s as far from mourning casseroles as possible.

Especially alive is the ginger carrot bisque (show here: $6)-made silky with coconut milk, then given a kick in the pants by a zingy dose of ginger. There are some fine, bargain-friendly kid’s meals too; pity about the lofty prices on the grocery shelves. But hey, if residents in this poshed-up neighborhood actually buy $8 sugar cubes, Southport Grocery will make a killing.
