This a place that my friend Keetha mentioned on my impromptu jaunt through literary Mississippi. I arrived early for lunch (highly recommended) and grabbed a seat at the bar (close to the kitchen action) with my six year-old. I asked for the best thing on the menu, which turned out to be a special and not on the menu at all. It was a soft-shelled crab BLT (pictured below) a sweet tea, and some prime Mississippi reading material.
The food was fabulous, as was watching the skirts and suits walking into the place speaking in their beautifully slow, educated drawls. They didn't even know how much people-watching- pleasure they were giving this Georgia girl. If you're ever in Jackson, be sure to give the Fondren district of town, as well as this precious culinary gem, your special attention.
