Former soul-food hookup White Lily has changed its name, but the same owners still dole out generous portions of southern-style comfort food like fried chicken and macaroni and cheese. You'd best arrive hungry: Two fillets of crispy, cornmeal-encrusted catfish come pinned between mounds of collard greens and candied yams, and a stack of baby-back ribs arrives with a mountain of potato salad. Except for some classic salads and decadent sides, entrées cater to carnivores. Big portions shouldn’t discourage you from capping things off with moist, buttery three-layer lemon cake. While the food is ample, the décor is spare, with black-and-white prints of legends like Tina Turner and Ella Fitzgerald dotting the walls.Recommended Dishes
