Jed Portman 3 comments

Xiao Bao Biscuit, serving an amalgam of dishes pulled willy-nilly from across Asia and tweaked considerably in coastal South Carolina, exemplifies the best that the new South has to offer. More

Red Rooster: Well Designed But Still Finding Its Legs

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 22 comments

It's easy to want Red Rooster, Marcus Samuelsson's new 125th Street soul-food-with-a-twist spot, to succeed. Despite the busloads of tourists scarfing down mediocre ribs and fried chicken from nearby Sylvia's, the dining landscape in this neck of the woods is pretty grim. Can Red Rooster change the landscape of fine dining in Harlem? More

Hot Dog of the Week: Krystal Burgers' Mini-Pups

Hot Dog of the Week Hawk Krall 12 comments

Last week we featured mini hot dogs from Famous Lunch in Troy, New York. To keep the slider-sized wieners theme alive, this week I picked Krystal in South Carolina, a chain that could best be described as southern White Castle on crack. Not just mini burgers but also mini chicken sandwiches and these "pups" that far exceeded my expectations. Fast food hot dogs pretty much go against everything I believe in, but there's something magical about Southern chains. More

Peels: Seasoned Southern Comfort Classics Short on Seasoning

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 13 comments

William Tigertt and Taavo Somer of Freemans recently opened Peels on the Bowery with a menu that's similar in style to its alley-hidden sibling, but with an emphasis on Southern cooking. More

The Vegetarian Option: Tipsy Parson

"Do all chefs think their vegetarian customers only want to eat fried foods, mac and cheese, and salad every time they go out to dinner? Or do they care?" [Photographs: Maggie Hoffman] Tipsy Parson 156 9th Avenue (near 20th St;... More

Mardi Gras can get lost in the shuffle of holidays. All of a sudden "Fat Tuesday" has passed and you haven't celebrated. But it's not too late, and what better way than with a delicious Southern-style bread pudding? More

Family-Style Meals at Monell's in Nashville

Erin Zimmer 17 comments

"The Pass to the Left Policy works out well—everyone gets fed eventually. But it gets a tad intense when the fried chicken arrives." Monell's 1235 6th Avenue N., Nashville TN 37208 (map); 615-248-4747 Meals: lunch Monday through Friday, dinner Tuesday through Saturday, breakfast on the weekends and Sunday afternoon meal. Monell's in Nashville is one of those places where you shouldn't eat breakfast that morning (or maybe even last night's dinner). You're basically in for a Southern Thanksgiving, except with 10 or so people you've never met. Every meal here (lunch, dinner, the weekend country breakfast, and Sunday meal) is served family-style like they did back in the days of Southern boarding houses—except with other peoples' families. But you'll get... More

Harper's Soul Food Cafeteria in Nashville, Tennessee

Erin Zimmer 7 comments

"The fried okra nubbins are just asking to be snacked on pre-cash register." [Photographs: Erin Zimmer] Harper's 2610 Jefferson Street, Nashville TN 37208 (map); 615-329-1909 Hours: Open 7 days a week. Monday through Friday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Many restaurants in Nashville are closed on Sundays and Mondays, but Harper's—the cafeteria-style soul food restaurant near Tennessee State University—isn't. And that was sure a good thing this week when bundles of people filed in here after the annual Martin Luther King Day march to the university. Instead of the usual Southern tradition of "Meat and Three" (your choice of one meat and three sides—a beautiful thing), Harper's does Meat and Two. But... More

Art Smith's fried chicken. [Photograph: Erin Zimmer] Fried Chicken Recipes Art Smith's recipe » The Lee Brothers' recipe » Paula Deen's recipe » Edna Lewis' recipe » Chefs are paying more attention to fried chicken—the seasonings, 36-hour brines, air-drying techniques, and fancy bread crumbs. There really doesn't seem to be a downside of a fried chicken boom. But at the end of the day, is it really any better than Popeyes? We asked a few Southern food gurus for their secrets to classic fried chicken.... More

Each Saturday evening we bring you a Sunday Supper recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow. As the name of a recipe, I've loved "Country Captain" since first reading about it I don't... More

The Best Fried Chicken Recipe Ever?

Many, many years ago, before I even started writing about food, I went to Atlanta on a business trip. I have no idea what the business trip was about, but what I really went to Atlanta to do was taste... More

Eggs Benny

Lia Bulaong 3 comments

Southern Fried Eggs Benny is kind of like Eggs Benedict, only with a fried egg instead of poached, sausage instead of Canadian bacon, and cream gravy instead of Hollandaise. If your mouth isn't watering by now, I'm not sure we can be friends.... More
