Owner Carol Simmons doesn't mind if you bring your own vino to this soul food spot -- just make sure you pack a corkscrew because she doesn't own one. One wall in the Galewood-area eatery is decorated with a giant fork, knife, spoon and plate-like mirror place setting; the daily menu is listed on a chalkboard near the door. Mississippi native Simmons' hearty home cooking, based on her mother's recipes, includes mac and cheese, blueberry cobbler, and chicken and dumplings. The eatery's fried chicken is made to order; your white or dark meat meal can be paired with sides such as candied yams, black eyed peas with okra or lima beans. On Friday nights, choose from seafood selections like gumbo, shrimp or fried catfish.
