Next Southern/Creole/etc. place to try?

Thi N. | Nov 12, 2003 09:29 PM

my mind is amuddle. I can't remember the names of all the old possibilities. What non-BBQ Southern place should I try next?

My taste: for BBQ, I like Tasty Q OK, Woody's better, Leo's even better (beef bits), Philippe's even better, and Jay Bee's best of all (beef only).

For Southern food: I love Flossie's for the sides (esp mac and cheese) and fried chicken and fried catfish, but not for the other main dishes. I found Aunt Kizzy's kind of lifeless (competent, but sort of empty fried chicken, same for the sides), the Watts M&M greasy and filling but not super, and Roscoe's chicken and waffles incredibly comforting when I hate myself, but not actually good.

(BTW, the remodel of the Pico Roscoe's, with pink running lights, makes it the best restaurant ambiance in town. Christ, it's a time!)

I like Uncle Darrow's gumbo and love their oyster po boys. I despise the po boy place in the Farmer's Market.

Oh, and Stevie's has decent fried chicken. I never seemed to have been able to make it for their gumbo.

Where to next?
