Village Voice's Description

Go ahead and drink the Kool-Aid. No, really. The electric-red drink is offered at this Williamsburg restaurant that's imbued with a Southern, cheffy sensibility. Not everything works, but how can you not love a joint whose menu boldly proclaims, "Fritos sourced from Plano, Texas"? Start with fried Brussels sprouts or smoky Dr. Pepper ribs before tackling calorific entrees like chicken-fried steak that comes wrapped in a whopper of a crust, sinking under the spell of cream gravy, buttery mashed potatoes alongside. Order the flaky buttermilk biscuits and you've got yourself the beige-food trifecta of fattening delights!
