Despite the mural of second-liners painted on the wall and the New Orleans jazz piped into the dining room, Cornbread Café’s cuisine is more the Carolinas than it is the Big Easy. There’s scrumptious chicken, shrimp, and catfish po' boys on the menu, alongside such Creole favorites as crawfish etoufée, but it seems that the chef's heart lies closer to the Eastern seaboard than the Mississippi. As proof, sink your teeth into her crispy Maryland Crabcakes in rich remoulade sauce, or savor her spicy Barbecue Carolina Chopped Pork. But when Cornbread Café really gets soul food right on the weekends: The South Slope eatery is a favorite for brunch, with staples like hominy grits, corn fritters, and a three-egg, country ham, bacon, peppers, and cheddar cheese omelette called (what else?) the Southerner offered as down-home ways to start the day.Extra
