This is the kind of homey and comforting spot that anyone would be glad to have in their neighborhood, but would just as happily drive to find. Generous portions make it a favorite for family-style and group dining. The lovely back patio is draped with string lights and vines, fashioning a perfect backdrop for evenings alfresco. The cooking is soulful and comforting, starting with a plate of golden-fried black-eyed pea fritters with a garlicky green herb sauce for dipping. Their fried chicken is decadent, served juicy with a wickedly spicy hot sauce and caramelized sweet potatoes. Buttery coconut cake for dessert is pure, old-fashioned bliss.
The kitchen may only be open for dinner, but try the coffee shop next door for daytime visits.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
