Miss Lee's Good Food

Miss Lee has been serving her self-titled "home-cooked herbal dishes" here since 1998, after she left well-loved (and since-shuttered) Bronzeville restaurant Gladys' Luncheonette. Whatever you order, you won't go hungry. The menu includes filling fare such as fried catfish and spicy chicken with made-from-scratch cornbread stuffing. Each entree also comes with homemade corn muffins or biscuits and two sides--options include black-eyed peas, collard greens and yellow turnips. Dessert is just as decadent: Choose from homemade peach or sweet potato cobbler, buttermilk pie or banana pudding, served only on Sunday. There's just one catch: You'll have to take your home-cooking home: The restaurant only offers carryout. However, if you've never had a Miss Lee's meal before, she's happy to offer a taste of anything you’d like to try.
