What is your favorite country cooking restaurant? By that, I mean a place that serves such things as fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, turnip greens, cornbread, black eyed peas, cabbage, squash, etc. That is my kind of eating!

I don't know of any such place in N. O. since I live in B. R. I don't know of anyplace in B. R. either, but Country Kitchen in Gonzales is pretty decent.

Once again, it is always amazing to me the difference 400 miles or so can make.

In my little North Alabama world, you almost can't throw a rock without hitting a "meat and three" restaurant.

Right off the top of my head, and within a 5 mile radius, I can name:

The Choice
The Courtyard Cafe
Cafe 5
Beans and Greens
Hwy. 278 Restaurant
The Cupboard

I realize this helps you not one bit, but just thought I'd contribute. lol

I was up late last night (2 am) and almost answered this thread at that time.
I knew immediately that lolly would have a few suggestions,
albeit a few hundred miles away.
As I often say:
Great cooks here; not to many restaurant goers.

Continuing...
I am always on the road with my job and when I'm home
we eat out mostly for lunch, cooking is left for supper time (Diner)
So I agree not to many "Down Home cooking Joints" in our area.

Here is one I tried recently:

Two Sistas"N Da East
9901 Chef Hwy

Good Luck,
aboy

LOL Lolly. I don't get to northern Alabama but maybe somebody here can use the list. It sounds like there is some good eating to be had in that area.

Thanks for the tip, aboy.

In New Orleans, I would say the "Praline Connection" in the Marigny on Frenchman. Been quite a while since I ate there, but when I was working down the street, I would have lunch there at least once a month.

Hmmm. In The City, two come to mind-- and a third is on the tips of my fingers. But the two I rec are any of Li'L Dizzy's outlets and Sisters N The East. But, but -- OMG, I needs me a shot of WD40, neat -- there was this place that, post-Thing, moved its operations to the Tulane (?) campus. Their specialties included fried chicken and a mess of both greens and lima beans. (And BTW, speaking of greens [Some yoosta call this pot likker] just this very week, I saw on tee-vee something that a registered dietician had told me long ago: (paraphrasing) 'Anytime that you boil or steam any vegetables, and especially greens and/or spinach, drink some of the juices, because that is where the core nutrients will settle.'

Post Script to tigersbh: When You are back in Dallas, here's hoping we can break some bread and eat some sho-nuff country cooking at Momma's Daughter's Diner.

Those sound like some good places, Ben. Aboy backs you on that Sisters in the East.

>break some bread and eat some sho-nuff country cooking at Momma's Daughter's Diner
