I have always had a love for American Southern comfort food, memories of travels across the Southern parts of the USA, with restaurants serving up their Southern dishes. This East Village neighborhood dive is filling that void, serving up skillets of Southern inspired comfort food at great prices. This past weekend a couple of my friends Sheryl and Larry joined me for some brunch eats, I had the Chicken and Waffles ($9.99) which came with one piece of tender chicken served overtop of two of their delicious home-made waffles, served with bacon gravy, maple syrup with a squeeze of orange, Sheryl had the Veggie Skillet Hash ($8.99) poached eggs, sautéed onions, and mushrooms tossed together with roasted parsnip, potatoes with cheese and fresh herbs. Larry had the Meat and Eggs Skillet ($13.99) which was filled with all sorts of goodness topped with baby back ribs. We then all shared the Cornbread Skilled ($6.99) served with butter and pimento cream cheese on the side. This dish was on their dinner menu which I had been eyeing for weeks, note that it does take at least 15 minutes to make as it is made fresh to order.
They offer a list of southern inspired cocktails as well as local craft brew to go along with their down home eats. I’m looking forward to a future visit to try some of their dinner favourites including the slow cooked beef brisket.
