The lowdown

At the top of its menu, Miss Mamie’s Spoonbread Too promises an experience that’s “like going back home.” And even if its 1950s-style kitchen with red-and-yellow checkerboard tile and Motown soundtrack don’t resemble the house you grew up in, the laid-back atmosphere and home-style eats will quickly make you feel at ease. Celebs from Angela Bassett to Mike Tyson to Bill Clinton have all dropped in for a taste of owner Norma Jean Darden’s generations-old family recipes, like the perfectly seasoned and battered fried chicken, smoky collard greens, zesty potato salad or melt-in-your-mouth, fall-off-the-bone short ribs.
