Homestyle: Start with beignets and move on to a trio of Benedicts: deep south, cajun or fried-green tomato. Of course there's biscuits and gravy, and for grits lovers (yes!) you can get yours with roasted veggies, barbecue shrimp and in the uber-rich eggs Sardou. All of the New Orleans standards are on the menu, including etoufee, jambalaya, red beans and rice and fried oysters. There are po' boys and there's mac-and-cheese done four ways, from a breakfast option and classic style to mac with barbecue or with blackened chicken. There's no reason not to considering drinking your breakfast or lunch, and by that we mean indulging in a Butterfinger or salted-chocolate-pretzel milkshake, or, in a nod to today's current bacon trend, the chocolate-dipped bacon shake. The newer Capitol Hill eatery is a nice addition to the original Jefferson Park location in a historic home.
Local Expert Christine Loomis Says:
Homestyle: "Ask about the "secret" items that aren't on the menu. Some, including breakfast sliders, fried-green tomatoes and spiced coffee, used to be and the kitchen will still make them upon request."
Best for Homestyle Because: This is Louisiana and Cajun homestyle with a nod to a few new trends in the comfort-food arena.
