Does anyone remember Butchie's BBQ? He started in the South End, on Washington Street (where Mike's City Diner is now). He was also in Central Square for a while and most recently, a few years ago, on Beacon Street in Somerville.
Butchie has opened the Avenue Cafe at 319 Western Ave in Cambridge in a store front a couple of blocks from Memorial Drive. GO THERE for some of the best Southern/Soul Food in Boston. All home made from scratch by Butchie himself.
Great fish, pork, and chicken dishes including catfish, jerk chicken, ribs, etc.
A wonderful seafood/okra gumbo; chicken and sausgae jambalaya; red beans and rice with assorted meats; assorted po-boy sandwiches.
Sides include home-made greens (vinegary and sweet at the same time); mac 'n cheese; slaw; mashed and dirty mashed potatos; candy sweets, etc.
Butchie makes each and every dessert: Sweet potato and pecan and key lime and lemon and coconut pies; deep dish cobblers (peach, blueberry); and a pinapple upside down cake you'll want to take home and savor for later.
He's fixed up this small storefront and made it comfy and homey. Stop by and have a bowl!
