The first time I went to South on Main was January of this year and I have been addicted ever since. I went to see my good friend, Epiphany, perform but the kitchen was still open so I said, why not? I ordered the Rabbit Boudin with creamed greens and cornbread. Lissen. The boudin was melt in your mouth and the greens tasted like Madea was back there in the kitchen churning them out. I had to stop the Chef, Matt Bell, and ask him how he made those greens and how much I had to pay him for the recipe!
The last time I was there, it was for lunch. Now I have to really love a place to go to lunch solo. I do not go to lunch by myself ,judge your mother. But the Blue Plate Special of the day was Duck Andouille with rice grits and brown beans and I just had to have it. I was not disappointed. The flavors of all the components of the meal were just excellent. I was so full, but a happy plate had to happen.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am a frequent visitor of South on Main and I am not ashamed of my addiction. The atmosphere is very southern and the food has southern roots with modern twists. Chef Matt Bell is one of the nicest people that I have ever met and his staff is wonderful. If you haven’t had a chance to go, I highly suggest that you give them a visit. They have a great lunch and dinner menu and their bar selection is excellent. The desserts are to die for, and I know desserts. They have everything from Cronuts to Dessert Jars. So head on down to South on Main and Treat Yoself.
