Southern Swag at Lowcountry
This quaint and edgy resto has that southern charm! The vintage albums stacked on the shelves, the Notorious B.I.G. framed print propped up against the top of a booth, and the dimly-lit exposed brick dining room really set the tone for the unique aesthetic. Similar to the ambience, the food was just as charming.
Dumplings: Initially, I was underwhelmed with this dish but the mushrooms saved it.
Mac & Cheese is always a good choice on a cold NYC night….and this version didn’t disappoint.
Fried Chicken Biscuit: OMG- I could’ve had this and only this….the biscuit was crunchy and soft, and the fried chicken was pure perfection. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the onion jam but it didn’t matter because the dish was amazing!
Roasted Half Chicken: It was good but the fried chicken biscuit is a hard act to follow. The flavor and consistency of the stuffing added a nice touch.
Catfish with Rice and Beans: The crispy catfish on a bed of a jambalaya-like goodness hit the spot!
Brussells Sprouts: It had a “barbecue sauce thing” going on that was pretty good.
THE SWEET SPOT: We didn’t have room for dessert but if we did, I would’ve tried the banana bread pudding.
CHAT: I was loving the playlist….. “Love is a Battlefield” was piping through when we walked in. I also couldn’t get a particular song out of my head when we left…Lil’ John’s “Get Low”….. (They didn’t play that song but I guess the name brought me there).
Next time I have to try the pulled pork sliders and grits.
