Pork Chops And Grits Cafe (3rd & E. Clay, Richmond)

fcbaldwin | Feb 21, 201404:54 PM     1

It's on the corner of 3rd and E Clay, in the street or basement level of an old row-house. I think it's been open less than a year.
This is not nouvelle cuisine. No, it's old Southern. Soul Food. Great Food. We went for lunch yesterday, Feb. 20, 2014.
Lady Dee, one of the owners, met us and seated our party of four for lunch. Lady Dee is the Hostess that you wish you might have at every fine restaurant that you enter. Yes, I consider Pork Chop and Grits Cafe to be a "fine dining" restaurant. But at a much more reasonable price.
Lady Dee engages you like you're family. And you immediately are comfortable.
Our meals were "divine," as my mother used to say. Smothered pork chops, perfect collard greens (cooked down with all the correct seasonings), real mashed potatoes and gravy, etc. By the way, the dredging on the pork chops was out of this world.
The Service couldn't have been better; the cook (Lady Dee's SO?) came out to see if we liked the food! Yes!
Be sure to check their hours...I think lunch is only on Thurs. and Fri.
