I love Southern and American food, and it turns out that Home of the Brave serves this type of cuisine. My friend Linda and I walked into the upper level where the restaurant was and was greeted by a friendly hostess who showed us to our table. The dim lighting and loud conversation in the space gave a casual and enjoyable atmosphere; perfect for a date or a night out with friends. There was a large bar area with a hefty selection of spirits and liquors.
They have a special dish every day of the week which is a good deal. I was eyeing their Lobster Roll on their online menu which turns out to be a special on Tuesdays. Too bad we weren’t here on a Tuesday! Haha. The Wednesday deal was a “Beef Dip Sandwich” which my friend ended up ordering.
I was really feeling for some Southern dish and their Broccoli and Grits really hit the spot. 😀 It arrived in a black pan and immediately reminded me of the savory Smoked Chipotle Honey Wings that I had at Bar Hop (and also the Smoked Duck Mac and Cheese that Steph had at there too) that was also served in a black pan.
The Broccoli and Grits were so good! I loved every bite of the creamy and cheesy grits. They were soft and yummy. Mmm 🙂 The brocooli pieces were actually huge! Which is why the server brought me a super sharp steak knife to cut it down, haha. I liked the combination of the grits plus the flowery stalks. If the entire pan was filled with grits, I would have been stuffed very quickly. The broccoli was the best partner to pair it with. 🙂
I want to come back to this restaurant since I’ve yet to try their other Southern dishes (how about the “Fried Kentucky Handshake Sandwich” or the Chicken and Waffles? Also, their [$3 root] beer and drinks!). Lots of food to choose from that I know I’ll probably love since it’s all Southern-style dishes. Mmmm sooo good. 🙂 I highly recommend Home of the Brave for a casual chat and chow down. 😀
