Cobb Lane Restaurant
The restaurant, which featured Southern cuisine, was established in 1948 by Virginia Cobb. It quickly became popular for its large shaded courtyard and quaint interior dining areas, as well as for its she-crab soup and other signature dishes. The street was renamed in Cobb's honor in 1982. The restaurant continued to operate under a sequence of new owners after her death in 1987.
