After 20 years, this quintessentially neighborhood restaurant still draws crowds from all over the city for homey, impeccably fresh fare such as grilled green tomato gazpacho with black bean corn patty, and the signature Fried Chicken of Your Dreams with mashed potatoes, gravy, collard greens and “damn fine” buttermilk biscuit. There are always a number of excellent vegetarian selections and special menus for the Jewish holidays. Owner/chef Brad Levy has also recently added gluten-free preparations to the mix. Warm, romantic and utterly charming.
