Gourmet market, wine shop and restaurant Veritas has charted a unique course over its 10-year history, one that a 2013 relocation did nothing to disrupt. David Stitt, who owns Veritas with his wife, Stephanie, is the brother of acclaimed Birmingham, Ala., chef Frank Stitt (Highlands Bar & Grill). The Stitts’ son, Mathis, who worked at his uncle’s restaurant as well as the famed Little Nell in Aspen, Colo., serves an oft-changing upscale menu Thursday through Saturday evening. His Mustard Room menu is more casual, though no less appealing, especially the grass-fed burger topped with pimento cheese.
